'Introduction to the village
Epeigné les Bois is a rural village which is part of the administrative district of Bléré. It is situated to the east of the Indre and Loire department, bordering the Loir and Cher department, 12 kilometers from Bléré and 39 kilometers from Tours.

Set back from the valley of the river Cher, the village is cut in two (from South to North) by the Chézelle stream, a tributary of the left side of the river Cher. The centre of the village is grouped around the church on the left bank of the stream, on a gentle slope.

Wrapped around an undulating countryside, the village is a green and leafy stop on the route to the chateaux of Montpoupon (4 km) and Chenonceau (9km). Read on in English or French
