Montbazon lies some 230km south of Paris and 10km south of the city Tours in the valley of the River Indre, just south of the Loire Valley and is a small picturesque town that was home to the writer Balzac.

Montbazon is the main centre of a district of 19,500 inhabitants, comprising five communities in the valley and two on the plateau. It has the Chateau d’Artigny, built at the turn of the century as family home for the Coty family and now one of Frances finest hotels and is where the exclusive perfume Kenzo is made.
