This is a transitional area: still in the Sologne and yet so close to the Touraine. The houses are made up of both bricks and tufa. Here, History and traditions are felt everywhere: from Arian’s bridges (supposedly dating from the Roman period) to Tour-en-Sologne, from Villesavin’s castle-built in the reign of François 1er- to Bracieux, a small town renowned at the beginning of the XXth century for its castle fairs. Many dicoveries and pleasures ahead
