The Balzac museum is part of the heritage and nature of the Indre valley which crosses the Saché municipality from east to west. Favourable for the building of little manors and troglodytic homes, this valley benefits from the "L'Indre à vélo" cycle route, which mirrors the nearby cycle path "La Loire à vélo". The château d’Azay-Le-Rideau is located only 7 km away. Discover the other nearby tourist sites and the region's different writers' houses. Moreover, follow in the footsteps of Balzac by discovering his home town, Tours.
