Your first memory

During the first season when we moved here, in July 2009, I remember when touring the gardens at la Chatonnière castle, a haven of peace in a valley surrounded by nature.

Name a place

The beauty of the Azay-le-Rideau castle, the Renaissance staircase, the surrounding water that mirrors the façade and reminds me of Italy, a country that my wife and I adore.

Name a person you have met

The head gardener at Château de la Chatonnière - he has a memorable face that exudes both strength and wisdom.

Tell us about an unforgettable moment

Visiting the Balzac Museum, the printing room and the Rodin room in this beautiful manor steeped in the author's works and souvenirs.

A pleasant surprise

An encounter with a deer on a bridleway in the Chinon forest.

Name a savour

That's easy to answer - a glass of rosé from Azay-le-Rideau with fresh goat cheese and salt.

A photo opportunity

The Loire in the early morning, shrouded in mist, with the soaring arches and struts of the Langeais bridge.
