Activities in the Loire Valley


The Bas-Pesé Water Mill sits in the middle of three major Châteaux: Blois, Chambord and Cheverny. Many smaller but just as fascinating Châteaux surround it: Château de Troussay, Beauregard, Château de Villesavin, The old Bracieux Hall, Château de Fougères, Château du Moulin, Chateau de Talcy...

Besides its cultural heritage:

  • In the summertime, the nearby Mont-Près-Chambord village offers a natural swimming pond, the first in Europe. You can also enjoy many more nautical activities on the Loire, right outside Blois.
  • The cheverny golf course is 6km from the watermill.
  • Several riding schools surround us.
  • You can also fly over the Châteaux in a balloon.
  • You can hire bikes in Blois, Chambord, Cours Cheverny or Bracieux.
  • You can relax in our gardens or take our boat to the Château of Villesavin or on a fishing trip.
  • The Breil airfield, north of Blois allows you to fly over the surrounding area on an airplane or an helicopter.
  • The renown Beauval Zoo is at 30 minutes and remains a major attraction for kids.
  • You can visit the Giens Faience workshop.
  • You can also have an horseback trip from Montrichard to Chambord with a night at the Watermill for the guests and at the Villesavin Château for the horses.
