La Barboire is surrounded by a dense network of forest roads that favours rambling and mountain bike tour (La Loire à Vélo cycling itinerary).

Close to La Barboire, a great number of activities is possible: kayaking, cruises along the Loire on a typical boat called “la toue”, hot-air balloon fly, golf, hunting, fishing, visit cellars, markets, flea markets, visit artists’ studios, etc.

Not forgetting, obviously, the proximity of the Châteaux of the Loire Valley, and particularly, the most prestigious of them all: the Château of Chambord.

From April to November, the unmissable event for Nature lovers and contemporary art amateurs is the International Garden Festival in the Château of Chaumont-sur-Loire.
