Savonnières, a charming village
How pleasant our village is!
Located 2km from La Grange, nestled at the meeting of the Loire and the Cher, Savonnières benefits from a green and hilly setting which is part of the most beautiful landscapes of the Touraine.
On foot or by bike, you will enjoy the banks of the Cher, its local life and its shops.
End your walk with a dinner in its gastronomic restaurant, its bistro, or its guinguette!
A must-see town in the Centre Val de Loire, the city takes you where you would not expect: labelled a Town of Art and History, it is constantly reinventing itself and invites you to discover original and surprising places!
The architectural heritage, museums, theatres and cultural events fully justify the reputation of the capital of Touraine as a cultural and tourist centre in western France.

La Grange is located directly on the Loire by Bike route, a 900 km cycling route along the longest river in France, the Loire.
This cycle path allows you to reach the Château de Villandry by bike, 6 km from our house, but also Tours (13 km) and many other wonders of the Loire Valley.
