Paulmy has a tennis court, a large fishing pond and a play ground for children. People are friendly and helpful here, so anyone will tell you where everything is.There is golf course (20 kms) and riding stables 7 kms away (this is marvellous riding country).
The Touraine vineyards around Tours and some of the loveliest of the Loire châteaux at Chinon or Azay le Rideau are less than an hour's drive.
