Our local town – Bourbon-Lancy

Between the Loire and the Charolais mountains, Bourbon Lancy has been renowned for the quality of its waters since antiquity. The spa offers a variety of relaxation and fitness options. Also, explore the picturesque medieval town, with its belfry. At the Museum of Breuil, discover the Gallo-Roman archaeology collection, and at the Museum of Saint-Nazaire, paintings and sculptures.

More things to do nearby

In the next village of Maltat there is a riding stable for the equestrians among us! They can provide lessons or just can just go for a nice hack in the beautiful countryside.

There are plenty of places nearby for dog walking and just to the south of Bourbon Lancy on the Loire river is a sandy beach which is perfect for dogs. In the summer months the water is quite shallow and great for dogs to swim in. This is also a good place for fishing or canoeing.
