Discover Tours and its surroundings

From the Mercure Tours Sud Hotel

The Mercure Tours Sud Hotel is an invitation to funtime and culturetime.

Share a moment of fun between adults or children with the ping-pong and billiard tables Made in France Cornilleau put at your disposal.

Take a step back in time and discover or rediscover French history. The Mercure Tours Sud Hotel places you in the heart of the Loire Valley and its castles, each more prestigious than the last. A walk or bike ride on the banks of the Cher and the Loire, close to the hotel, will make you fully aware of what "Touraine softness" means, thanks to to our partner's bike rental service! even more so if you decide to discover the wild river Loire on a traditional boat.

After visiting Tours, a City of Art and History, and strolling around Place Plumereau, proud and majestic in its alignment of medieval timber-framed houses, the Loire Valley Castles is waiting for you! A few kilometres away, less than 45 minutes, the castles of Villandry, Langeais, Azay-le-Rideau, Chenonceau, Amboise... are true jewels of the Renaissance with their exceptional gardens. History with a capital H unfolds before your eyes.

Take advantage of these beautiful escapes to discover the Loire wines... indeed, the Loire would not be the same without its wines. They give it its special colour, and it is the terroir of the royal river that you find in your glass! The cellars of Vouvray, Montlouis, Chinon, Bourgueil, Saint-Nicolas, Amboise... offer tastings throughout the year.

And for a family funtime bath What better way to enjoy the themed weekends at the Mercure Tours Sud hotel (bachata, yoga, ...), the Parc de la Bretonnièreand its summer leisure centre or theEspace Malraux also located next to the hotel.
