Azay-le-Rideau

4
As the center of the Touraine Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) for the Loire Valley, Azay-le-Rideau produces dry, white wines and red wines rich in tannins. This town in the Indre-et-Loire department of the central Loire Valley has many natural attractions, museums, and caves, as well as vineyard tours and wine tastings. Be sure not to confuse the town with the city's château built on an island in the Indre River, with the same name of this town. You have numerous ways to explore the valley. Bicycle rental is affordable and available for all members of your family. Alternately, you can explore the forests, vineyards, and châteaux on horseback--you can even rent a pony for the little ones. For more fresh air activities, canoe rental is available for rowing along the river, or explore the valley with a birds-eye view by chartering a hot-air balloon. Azay-le-Rideau is in Indre-et-Loire.
