Located at the crossroads of Touraine, Blésois and Sologne, the commune of Pontlevoy is in the heart of the Châteaux de la Loire.

The name Pontlevoy appears as early as the 9th century. It originates in a "stone bridge" which spans the Traîne-Feuilles, a brook, a sub-tributary of the Cher, which crosses the village.

Pontlevoy has important vestiges of Prehistory. But it is especially the superb architectural ensemble of its abbey, founded in 1034, which made its reputation. The village, at the heart of which is located the monument is full of charm.

You can discover, by following the "museum in the street" at the turning of picturesque alleys, old houses, built from the 15th to the 19th century.

Local products: wines (Gamay, Cabernet, Côt, Pinot, Crémant de Loire) and goat cheeses. Charcuterie: rillettes, rillons, honey (Faverolles), biscuits St Michel (Contres).
