Châteauroux Sud Berry

Châteauroux, a town in a garden

Located in the Centre region and county town of the Indre department, Châteauroux is also the buzzing capital of Sud Berry. Just two hours from Paris, Châteauroux lies in the heart of natural regions as diverse as Brenne, Vallée de la Creuse and Champagne Berrichonne.

The town of Châteauroux came after Déols. The lord of the neighbouring town abandoned his palace to build a fortress on the left bank of the Indre around 937AD. It was called Château-Raoul and the town is named after it. In the late 12th century, the King of France and the King of England fought for Château-Raoul. Châteauroux became the county town during the French Revolution.

Industry came to the town in the early 19th century and the railway arrived in 1847. Both World Wars propelled the town forward. The aviation factory set up in 1936 and a major American base in La Martinerie in 1951 led to the construction of estates, residences and houses.

The establishment of districts, the town’s reorganisation and building restoration made Châteauroux a town in stunning natural surroundings renowned for its quality of life. The town lies in a huge garden with a green path (Coulée Verte) and a population of 47,600.
