Information about Anjou

Just a few hours from Paris, discover l'Anjou, reputed for the agreeable way of life, gastronomy, castles and abbeys.
From Sable: The river Sarthe is a calm river meandering through verdant countryside dotted with picturesque villages. There are very few locks along its reaches, so it's ideal for novices. Don't miss the most elegant castle of Plessis Bourré, the imposing Benedictine Abbey of Solesmes, Malicorne, capital of artistic porcelain and the older part of Le Mans town.


From Grez: Discover la Mayenne, dotted with small villages, manor houses, castles and old mills clinging to the river hillsides. Make a stop at Angers, King Rene's city, also the Abbey in Entrammes and the famous cheeses of Port Salut. In the town of Laval, the Naïve art museum is worth a visit. The Oudon river near Grez-Neuville will also bring you calmness and don't miss the stud farm in the Lion d'Angers.
