Bonneval is a ravishing medieval town, built around the Saint-Florentin abbey. From this period, it has kept defensive parts like the Saint-Roch gate (15th century) or the King’s Tower (13th century). The Loir river, running around the fortifications, gave the town the nickname of Little Venice of the Beauce. It can be visited on foot, for a ramble between the Notre-Dame church and the ‘Maison de la Lanterne’.
A trip by electrical boat on the Loir river may not be missed; an original and fun way to visit Bonneval.
