Why not head over to the monthly brocante (3rd Sunday of the month) at Chinon on Sunday. It is set up on the banks of the river Vienne on Promenade des Docteurs Mattrais (opposite the place Jeanne d'Arc).
It adds another dimension to a visit to this interesting town.
Most of the exhibitors are professionals with a lot of quality products but you can still find some little bargains.
