A tranquil haven just two hours from Paris

Belying its nearness to the bustling capital of France, (it lies just two hours south of Paris) Châteauroux is a peaceful and lovely town. It is also the cultural centre of the area, and you will find plenty to interest you here, especially during the summer months when there are festivals and exhibitions in abundance.

Historic town combining old and new

The town itself is built around its oldest quarter, which is found near to the river. The newer part fans out around this nucleus, with a suburban sector on the right bank. Even in the newer part of town however, you are never far from a sense of the important history and heritage of Châteauroux. In one of the main squares stands a statue of General Henri Bertrand and the Hôtel de Ville houses both a library and a museum containing some interesting Napoleonic artefacts. Principal buildings in Châteauroux include the modern though Gothic-styled church of St. Andre, and the Château Raoul itself, built in the 14th and 15th centuries, and from which the town derives its name.

Modern facilities with shops galore

Châteauroux also offers all the modern facilities you will need, such as banks, medical care, schools and shops. Shopping here is easy as the town has supermarkets, chain stores and smaller more personal boutiques to explore and enjoy. Its proximity to Paris also means that should you need the amenities which can only be found in a major city, perhaps for business purposes, you do not have to travel too far to find them.
