Description

Located northwest of Tours in the communes of Fondettes, Saint-Cyr-sur-Loire and La Membrolle-sur-Choisille, the Val de Choisille site is traversed by the Choisille River and its canals. This natural area is home to a great biodiversity. A few steps are enough to pass from the marshes and wet meadows to the woodlands and then to the steep hillsides that dominate the valley. This mosaic of habitats hosts a diverse flora and fauna throughout the year.
