Things to do with kids in the Southern Touraine area of the Loire Valley


The south of Centre-Val de Loire is a good place to visit with children as you have a safe friendly environment with a diversity of outdoor activities. There are riverside and lake beaches, canoeing on the rivers and you are within easy striking distance of the neighbouring Vienne's 'Futuroscope'.

Although Futuroscope, Valley of the Monkeys and Parc-St-Cyr are not actually in the Loire Valley/Centre Region they are easily accessible from Southern Touraine and well worth a visit.
