Le Thoureil is ideally located on the « Loire à vélo » cycle route (900 km accross beautiful lanscapes, villages and remarkable tourist sites between Nevers and the Atlantic Coast).Then our friends cyclists are obviously particularly welcomed ; a bike park and repairing area will be especially dedicated to their bicycles.
Hikers will surely also appreciate the region for its hiking routes as GR3 (passes very close to our house)
