Bourgueil - a tradition of fine wine

The town of Bourgueil, which is located in central France in the department of Indre et Loire, is a town with a great tradition of fine wine production. The name of Bourgueil is world famous for its place as an "AOC" (appellation d'origine contrôlée) which is a mark of quality for the superb red wine produced here. Bourgueil is also an attractive and prosperous town whose standard of living is considered one of the best in the country.

Everything you need

The town supplies everything you could wish for in a small town, with a selection of the usual shops such as butchers, bakers, patisseries, newsagents, cafés, bars and supermarkets. There are even five restaurants for those "treat yourself" times. And you can bet your boots that the wine list will include a bottle or two of Bourgueil!

Castles in the air

Well, maybe not in the air, but certainly there are castles around the area! Bourgueil has the Châteaux of Reaux and Gizeux, and any drive through this part of France will turn up many more of these fabulous historical castles, many of which are open to the public for viewing.

Days out

There are a lot of places within reach of Bourgueil that offer a host of interesting possibilities to entertain and even to educate you. Learn about the wines of the region by visiting a vineyard and taking a guided tour explaining the wine making process from start to finish... and end with a tasting of the final product. If this doesn't appeal, try visiting some of the regions' chateaux, museums and historical monuments. Visit the great city of Tours, or head south to Poitiers to the theme park of Futuroscope or the Valley of the Monkeys, where you can see hundreds of monkeys of all shapes and sizes swinging through the trees and living more or less as nature intended.

And for sports fans?

Most people these days like to keep fit, even if their chosen activity is simply walking. Bourgueil offers a good variety of sports, the vineyard laden countryside being particularly suitable for gentle walking or cycling. You can also find a good few golf courses, equestrian centres and fishing in the beautiful lakes and rivers of the region.
