About La Ferme de Prunay
Suitable ForTents, campervans, caravans, and dogs (on leads) all welcome.
There are discount vouchers available on site to get into many tourist locations in the Loir-et-Cher département, including the wonderful chateau at Blois (0033 254 90 33 32) 10 miles (16 km) away, where Joan of Arc was blessed in 1429 before she left with her army to drive the English from Orléans. The Maison de la Magie (0033 254 90 33 33), a spectacular House of Magic museum, is situated across the Place de la Château from the castle and equally merits a visit. The beautiful town of Amboise is well worth the 20-minute drive along the Loire both for its chateau and Le Clos Lucé (0033 247 57 00 73), the house where Leonardo da Vinci lived his final 3 years, which is now a museum displaying models of his amazing drawings. It’s possible to hire canoes to use on the Loire itself, or the rivers Loir and Cher, which feed into it.
Food & DrinkThe farm is a member of the regional tourist organisation ‘Bienvenue à la ferme’ and can recommend many local suppliers, listed in a French brochure, including La Cabinette for goats’ cheese in Onzain, 5 miles (8 km) away (which also has the best range of shops locally), or their favourite organic Touraine wine produced at Domaine Château-Gaillard in Mesland, about 2 miles (3 km) from the site. Among the many local markets they recommend those in Amboise on Friday and Sunday mornings on the banks of the Loire. There are many restaurants to choose from in Blois and just about anywhere near the castle is good. Nonetheless, L’Orangerie du Château de Blois (0033 254 78 05 36) really stands out as a special gastronomic treat. In a beautiful building with stunning interiors and a lovely terrace opposite the castle, its menus are from €34.
