Situated in the natural park of Anjou-Touraine along with some of the best vineyards in France, our domain is close to everything the wonderful Loire valley has to offer yet far from the bustle and crowds.

We are situated 2 km outside the village of Marigny Marmande, which has a small shop with fresh bread and a bar/cafe. Nearby towns include Richelieu and Chinon.

Our small shop in the village stocks a wide range of items including fresh bread and breakfast items, but if you’re looking for a big shop, there are a number of supermarkets nearby:

Richelieu: Intermarche

Sainte Maure de Touraine : Intermarche, Aldi

Châtellerault : Auchan, Leclerc, Intermarche, Lidl

Chinon: Leclerc, Super U, Aldi

We are surrounded by wonderful and inspirational food and drink with some excellent local markets, most days there will be a market to visit

If you’re looking for the hustle and bustle and wide selection of shops, we would recommend visiting Tours or Poitiers. Both have large high street names with plenty of choice.

If you’re looking to scoop a bargain on outdoor wear, wellies and clothes, we highly recommend visiting the Aigle factory shop. It is situated on the outskirts of Dangé-Saint-Romain, heading towards Chatellerault.
