Montrichard The Essential
Interesting
An ancient keep looms on the horizon, conjuring up the spirit of Foulques Nerra, once overlord of these parts... The charming little medieval town of Montrichard, with its tufa-built houses (like the Effiat and Ave-Maria residences) is, however, also known for its wineries which make a good sparkling white. Nearby are several places of interest including the troglodytic site of La Magnanerie, Château de Montpoupon, the underground settlement of Bourré, and Thésée's archaeological museum.
