Châteauroux and its surroundings
Châteauroux is at the junction of the department's great terroirs (La Brenne, the land of a thousand lakes; the Berrichonne countryside, the land of cereal farming; the Boischaut, the land of livestock farming and bocage). Châteauroux has taken care to preserve a high-quality natural environment: its titles of "Ville Quatre Fleurs" (City of Four Flowers) and "Grand Prix National du Fleurissement" (National Flower Award), and its state-owned forest (5,000 hectares of the best oak trees in France) bear witness to this.
The various developments of the Indre (the Vallée Verte) offer both preserved natural environments, such as the Saint-Gildas meadow, and areas developed for sports and leisure activities (swimming pools, lake, fitness trail).
Finally, the capital of Bas-Berry also shines through its cultural richness and diversity: its museums, its community life, its festivals, the programme of Équinoxe - La Grande Scène
