Welcome to our visitors.
I wish, in this short welcome, to inspire you to come and discover our town in the Touraine du Sud, and more specifically to our town of Descartes, native town of the famous philosopher René Descartes. One of the three René's our town has become famous for giving it the name "La Cité des Trois René"
Our charming town nesled in the valley of the "Creuse", is on the borders of three regions: Indre, Poitou, and Touraine, giving the town a fantastic geographical location from which to discover the region's beauty.
Descartes, winner of the three flowers, is a charming town where you can discover a green natural landscape in the heart of the Loire valley, with our splendid botanical gardens, a picturesque town centre, and an outstanding range of leasure facilities, including its aqua centre, sports complex including a velodrome, a BMX track, a martial arts centre and sports equipment to practice many activities.
With over sixty societies there is a vibrant and welcoming sense of community.
