Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Saint Maur and its surroundings
The capital of the Sud Berry region, Chateauroux is packed with things to see and do. Why not start by visiting the neo-Gothic Saint Andre Church and the gothic Saint Martial Church? Learn about the history of Chateauroux in the Musee-Hotel Bertrand before taking a stroll down the rue de l’Indre - the medieval street built below the ramparts which housed the tanners and wool traders. Walk along the rue de Pavillons to catch a glimpse of some spectacular town-houses before exploring one of the largest oak forests in France.
Enjoy some of the nearby countryside by following the Indre River which flows through Chateauroux and explore some of the parks and gardens that form the “Coulee Verte” – the green valley. Why not visit the Chateau des Planches, located in Saint Maur. The Chateau Raoul is also worth seeing, especially as the town is named after the castle. Then why not enjoy some contemporary art in the converted Convent des Cordeliers? So whether you are visiting on holiday or here on a business trip, you are sure to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Chateauroux as well as the quality and friendly service of the Campanile Chateauroux-Saint Maur hotel.
