Chédigny ~ a village of roses


Every summer the small and beautiful village of Chédigny holds its Rose Festival organised by local people through their Association Roses de Chédigny. At his time the village is awash with colourful roses, including up to 200 old, rustic varieties. During the Festival numerous rose plants of all types are also on sale in front of the 11th Century, Romanesque Church ~ see images below.

If you don’t like crowds, then you can always visit Chédigny at other times during the summer and experience its tranquil beauty.

Before you visit this village of the Touraine do download the Tourist’s Information’s guide (Tour 19) to an easy stroll around of Chédigny, Azay-sur-Indre and Chambourg-sur-Indre.
