An unusual content, obviously !

"Berry insolite" proposes you to discover amazing parks and gardens, to admire unknown places and remarkable buildings, to meet craftsmen, artists, and local characters, to visit thematic museums and rural ecomuseums, to take part in events and shows, to cross the big and the small stories, in short, to taste the life... and the local products!


More precisely...

More precisely? Well, at random, "Berry insolite" proposes you to walk with the enchanting poet, to discover magical marshes and vegetable gardens, to solve (maybe!) " The mysteries of Bourges ", to hear the story of the beast of Tendu-Mosnay, to have a drink in a bistro that rolls, to party with your witches and wizards (from Berry, of course !), to taste a mint tea (yes, in Berry, of course ! ), to meet Napoleon at the Bertrand museum, to take part in the chestnut festival, to have fun in a farm theater, to visit the castle of Valençay, but in sugar, to get married on Saint Valentine's day... among others!
