Focus on the sites with the QUALITÉ TOURISME™ brand
The high-quality approach to tourism and cultural sites in the Centre-Loire Valley region is the result of an active partnership set up by the Departmental Agency for Tourism in Touraine, at the request of the Departmental Council of Indre-et-Loire, the Centre-Loire Valley region and tourist sites, to guarantee that the Loire Valley respects the positive image that visitors have of the region.
Some 60 sites in the Centre-Loire Valley region are committed to this measure. In Touraine, the following sites have the QUALITÉ TOURISME™ brand:
- Château of Azay-le-Rideau
- Royal Château of Amboise
- Château and gardens of Villandry
- Royal fortress of Chinon
- Château and gardens of Le Rivau
- Château of Clos Lucé – Leonardo da Vinci Park
- Château of Montpoupon
- Pagoda of Chanteloup
- Loire Valley Mini-Châteaux
- Saint-Cosme priory – Ronsard House
- Prehistory Museum of Le Grand-Pressigny
- Balzac Museum – Château of Saché
- Maison du Souvenir – Memory House
- Loire Valley Aquarium.
Their commitments mainly focus on welcoming visitors (staff’s attitude, use of foreign languages, signage, etc.), the quality of infrastructures (cleanliness, complementary services during the visit, etc.), the visit itself (visitor safety, tools to help with the visit, etc.) and attentiveness to customers.
The Departmental Agency for Tourism in Touraine is always attentive to your needs and invites visitors to share their observations/suggestions to help us improve the quality of stays.
