We're staying north of Tours which is the capital of the Indre-et-Loire department of central France.
It gives it name to the Touraine - the region around Tours - which is well known for its wines. I feel a visit to a vineyard at some point might be a good idea.
It has an interesting claim to fame!
The inhabitants of Tours (Les Tourangeaux) are renowned for speaking the "purest" form of French in the entire country. The pronunciation of Touraine is widely regarded as the most standard pronunciation of the French language, devoid of any perceived accent (unlike that of most other regions of France, including Paris).You canpractice your French by taking a look at the official Tours website!
