Destination Saumur Loire Valley

Immerse yourself in a territory in such a way as to appreciate all its specificities? The key is the short circuit!

In search of authenticity

Escape into nature

Nature destination par excellence, Saumur Val de Loire invites to outdoor activities in a magical setting. Anjou sweetness, landscapes shaped by the Loire and a postcard atmosphere: nature is generous and the setting is changing to indulge in your favorite activities. Hikes in the forest or in the vineyards, paths in the trees to take a little height... Do not miss the walks on the Loire: contemplative descent and observation of the fauna and flora in canoe, heritage discovery from the river at aboard a traditional flat-bottomed boat… The journey begins here!

Savor fresh produce and local specialties

Of course, it is on one of the many markets in the region that we first discover the local nuggets. Residents and sellers meet there to share the best over the months. Live on the stalls or in their farms, local producers have a thousand wonders to offer: honey, artisanal biscuits, cheese jams, poultry... And on the good tables of Saumur Val de Loire, the restaurateurs surpass themselves to sublimate these local flavors of season, in a friendly or refined atmosphere: apples, grapes, fouées, mushrooms, asparagus...

Tasting Anjou wine, directly at the estate

Famous wine region, Saumur Val de Loire has made the vine a standard! From fine bubbles to mellow white tinged with gold, passing through red AOCs recognizable among a thousand (Saumur Champigny, the inimitable!), the estates open their doors wide to you to taste, understand and love the Saumur grape varieties. From the clay soil to the tuffeau walls of Clos Cristal, you need ingredients to produce a great wine!

Meet passionate artisans

Creators and craftsmen perpetuate or reinvent ancestral gestures that give birth to beauty. Fascinating to observe, passionate about beautiful work, these guardians of know-how offer creations full of meaning and history: illuminations, artistic ironwork, soap making, jewellery, textiles... In contact with them, one would almost dream of being an artist, in turn !
