France has more towns and villages than any other country in Europe; there are more than thirty six thousand and thirty two thousand of those have populations of less than one thousand and we are not about to provide information on all of them!!
There are plenty of pretty villages in the Loire Valley and the Vienne and the towns and villages we have highlighted here all have something special that we think makes them worth visiting.... ...from the old city quartier "Plumereau" in Tours to the magnificent display in the sky that is the "Geants du Ciel" in Chauvigny.
The old quarter Plumereau in Tours All the links on the left are to some of the places within easy reach of Le Bouchet, all of them being within an hours drive time and if you have a little more time there are some really scenic routes you can drive to take in some of the lovely views of the rivers, forests and charming little villages including several villages mentioned on the Plus Beaux Villages de France website, such as Angles sur l'Anglin, Montrésor, Crissay sur Manse and Candes Saint Martin.
