Bréhémont, a fishing village on the Loire...
The small village of Bréhémont lies thirty minutes west of Tours by car, in the Val de Loire, through which runs not only France's longest, but Europe’s last remaining undeveloped river, whose deceptive calm is in fact treacherous to navigate.
The area is known as the garden of France and for centuries was considered a princely playground as successive kings and their courtiers built immense castles throughout the region. Recognised as an outstanding cultural landscape of great natural beauty and architectural heritage, the area was classified a UNESCO world heritage site in 2000.
Located within 15 minutes drive of four of the regions major castles; Rigny-Usse, Langeais, Azay-le-Rideau and Villandry, the village of Bréhémont is ideally located for visiting some of the most interesting sites in the region.
The village has a bicycle and canoe rental, a bakery, a bar-restaurant, a tennis-court, a post-office and a public library.
