This is a gastro-walk, and you'll need to leave the A20 at lunchtime to make the most of it! The restaurant is opposite an 11th century church with an improbably twisted spire and charming gardens.
It seems a bit unfair to pay just a short visit to this very gracious chateau and the surrounding dog-friendly park - and if you're staying in the area then an afternoon visit is likely to be much...
Châteauroux has some narrow and winding medieval streets around the old chateau (now a government building) where tanners and clothworkers once plied their trades, and at one point in the 12th...
Forestry Commission sort of dog walk in an enormous forest - dark, damp and delightful.

A medieval village, well off the tourist track. You'll find a couple of patisseries and boulangerie, and plenty of medieval period property for sale if you feel like moving!
This doggiestop has been withdrawn because the pub is now closed. A new place will be added soon.
An ideal place for drivers, dogs and passengers to get out and really enjoy this well planned leisure/activity park. There's loads of space, clean WCs, easy parking and it's a pleasure to visit.
Pick up some lovely French pastries from the village, and then head down to the lake for a properly long dog walk and some fresh air
The atmospheric ruins of the Château Châlucet make a perfect dog walk and an interesting and varied break from driving, and are well worth a longer visit if you're staying in the area.

This ancient walled medieval town is ideal for a short break from driving.
