Loches is fast becoming my second favourite town in the Loire, the first being Chinon.
It’s only a 30 minute drive from us in Le Grand-Pressigny so we can go there often without too much effort. It has beautiful buildings, a great market on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and some lovely shops and restaurants.
When our visitors were with us on the Monday of our holiday, we decided to take them to Loches to show off how lucky we were to live in such a beautiful area of France.
Typically, it being Monday, many of the shops and restaurants were closed. I dare say that later in the tourist season, most of them would have been open – though not necessarily !!
Still, even with many businesses closed, it is a lovely place to do the touristy thing – maybe even better for not being so busy.
Three of our favourite restaurants were closed. So we looked around for somewhere new and found a little creperie in a side street called “La Crépicoise”
We all had delicious galettes and then had a brief walk around the town.
This is the town hall – Hôtel de ville – it features in my next post !!
