Life in a charming town—a river (or 2) runs through it

Set on a land mass between the Cher and Loire rivers in central France, the small town of Tours offers a sort of regal and quiet elegance. Spend your days in the picturesque Old City, home to a dazzling array of architecture, from medieval cathedrals to preserved half-timbered buildings. Book a Tours vacation rental and you'll enjoy a relaxed state, where evenings end with leisurely strolls along the river or with a glass of wine in hand. Natural beauty surrounds you too, in the form of pristine parks and formal gardens.

Things to do

From churches to gardens, beauty that's sent from heaven

Dominating Tour's skyline, the 12th-century Saint Gatien's Cathedral is a stunning building, complete with stained-glass windows, massive dual bell towers, and ornate flying buttresses. You can also tour the nearby Basilica of St. Martin, a 19th-century Neo-Byzantine church. If you want to learn more about the craftsman who produced such masterpieces, the Musee du Compagnonnage explores the history behind various guilds. For art lovers, the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Tours, housed in a former bishop's palace, showcases fine European art. If you need to reconnect with nature, Jardin Botanique de Tours offers gardens filled with water lilies and magnolias.

Activities

Shoppers unite!
