Point of Interest
Château de Montreuil-Bellay
Our favorite place so far for picnicking. Pack a lunch, head up there and find a spot at the base of the chateau, near the lake, and enjoy the view!
Medieval chateau perched on a hilltop overlooking the Thouet river. A pretty town with cafes and restaurants and flea market
“Sits proudly on a raised rocky area above the Loire and the town of Saumur. An imposing sight at any time, looks even more splendid when lit up at night.”
“The burial place of Richard the Lionheart and his mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine. Stunning Abbey, beautiful gardens. A calm and serene atmosphere. The hotel on the corner outside has the best Earl Grey tea I have ever tasted!”
“Lovely day out for all the family with well cared for animals and plenty of space.”
“A park with a collection of 15,000 rose bushes of 1,400 different varieties some of which are exclusive to the park. ”
