From Le Cèdre (The Cedar), you are very well placed to visit many castles which are the prestige of this region and of Touraine. We recommend to you specially:
– Azay-le-Rideau castle, jewels of the Renaissance, but 30 minutes west of Saint Branchs
– Chenonceaux castle, also known as the castle of Ladies, the most visited French private monument, but 30 minutes east of Saint Branchs
– Villandry Castle, with its park and gardens outstanding, but 30 minutes northwest
– Langeais Castle, very well preserved and little changed, but 30 minutes west
– the town of Loches and its castle overlooking the Indre, but 25 minutes south

– Montbazon dungeon, fortress called Black Hawk, but 13 minutes north
