The town of Le Blanc and the Region Centre-Val de Loire

 

 

Inside a major national nature park, the town of Le Blanc is nestled in a quilt of oak forests, lakes, rivers, gently rolling farmlands and fields, majestic castles, medieval architecture and tiny hamlets with red tile roofs.

 

This region Centre, is one of the last undiscovered treasures in the country.  It is still the true France, or La France profonde. 

Fields of  wheat, and yellow flowers of colza and sunflowers form the spring and summer landscape. 

Medieval festivals are a normal phenomenon set against the backdrop of medieval architecture.

Hiking, bicycling and horseback riding trails traverse the countryside.

Nature sports are abundant such as fishing, canoeing and swimming in the river.  The countryside is excellent for hunting.

This region is famed as one of the largest skydiving, ballooning and gliding spots in France.

There is never a lack of produce at the local farmers markets.

Do not forget the famous French Sunday Brocantes (flea markets).

By car, Le blanc is 1-1/2 hours from the castles of the Loire Valley, 1-1/2 hours from Limoges and 2 hours from the coastal port city of La Rochelle.
