Make a Bored Dad in France into a Sophisticate

Mefi French Folk and Francophiles, please help out my dad! My dear dad is stuck in the little town of Argenton Chateau (recently renamed Argenton Vallee)- which I think is about 50 km away from Tours, I think, and Angers , I think, and just south of the Loire Valley, I think. He has nothing to do all day but read his Kindle and sit at the local cafe while my mom is in a painting class in the little village for the next three weeks. Do you have recommendations for day trips and sights in the area?

He is not the best at planning and that's why he did not bring a guidebook specifically for the region. He's wiling to drive to Tours or do some other driving around the area, is very open-minded and quite mobile despite being in his 70s. Even especially scenic walks in the countryside or especially intriguing little towns would be nice side-trips.
