Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Indre-et-Loire

Charming village situated in the peaceful valley of the Brenne which flows the river bearing his name, is Chançay city in the 10th century in the charter of the abbey of Marmoutier under the name Cansiacum. The church of Saint-Pierre is a strong story about the seventh crusade through the gift of a relic of the true cross reported by the lord of Chançay, Hardouin de Maille, in 1285.
