Ozans - Eurosity - R&D - Industrial park

 

- The region is characterized by an extraordinary variety of landscapes offering plenty of outdoor activities. Walkers will enjoy the vast flowering meadows, groves, hills covered with vineyards, forests and pastures, rocky cliffs, valleys, and thousands of lakes.

- The architectural heritage of the Berry is very rich: the Jacques Coeur road, the most ancient road of France, Bourges, Câateau de Valençay and Domaine de George Sand, for example, are some of its jewels.

- The Art of Living in Berry is not on the sidelines, and can be seen in the quality of its wines and generous kitchen with multiple flavors. The culinary expertise of its chefs naturally draws in seasonal and local products that punctuate rural life. Here, appetite is assumed and subtly staged on exceptional tables.
