The nearest airport is Poitiers (60km away). The chateau sits on the edge of the small village of Ciron with boulangerie for your bread and croissants in the morning. Le Blanc is the nearest town of a reasonable size 15km away. It is very attractive and has some excellent restaurants.
Ciron is located in the heart of a Regional Parc – La Brenne – South West of the Berry area, one of the regions of the Centre Val de Loire region. Therefore it is at the corner of three different areas: Berry, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes. There are plenty of interesting places to visit and we just wanted to take this opportunity to mention a few places that are really worth paying a one-day trip (The Loire Valley and Poitiers/Le Futuroscope) or more nearby places of interest. For other ideas, we have left a number of travel books in the cupboard close to the kitchen entrance door to inform you of other possible venues to visit.
