To do other things than visiting monuments, tasting wines, playing sports, walking or relaxing in our garden, there are many other activities all along the year.
For those who love music, there are music festivals: Au fil du Jazz in Bourgueil in early February and Brass Band at the end of June / Blues in early July in Avoine / Chinon en Jazz on Pentecost / Concerts in Fontevraud in autumn – see programme
If you like second-hand markets, do not miss the market of Saint Brice in Restigné on November 16: 200 stalls just in front of La Dixmeresse
For some thrills, you will be delighted by one of the eight courses of the tree climbing park of St Benoît-la-Forêt – open every afternoon.
Children and adults alike will be pleased by the steam train of the Lake of Rillé.
If you are looking for a more original activity, visit La Cab’ânes in Restigné for a peaceful moment with donkeys.
And our favourite one for the year 2014: SOLOTAREFF’s “Animal” exhibition in the abbey of Fontevraud from April to November 2014.
