Castle of Langeais and Azay-le-rideau..
On another historical note, discover the Castle of Langeais : treasure of the Renaissance era with medieval inspirations. This castle is located 13 kms away from the campsite.

The beautiful village of Azay-le-Rideau is a must-see! This village is particularly famous for its incredible Renaissance castle, built under the reign of François 1er. This jewel from the past seems to be floating over water (brought by the river Indre) which brings a very romantic touch to its design.
