Venture off the beaten track

Unusual experiences in Saumurois

Getting out of time and daring to lose one's bearings... This is exactly what troglodyte visits offer: thousands of underground kilometers where you can dream, marvel and discover ancestral customs. But also discover unexpected art exhibitions, such as in the Ackerman cellars.

You can also taste typical culinary traditions there, such as fouées or... sleep in the warmth of the earth, well sheltered under the rock! If daylight is essential for you, prefer a night on a traditional Loire boat: at dawn, kingfishers, herons and other ospreys will be your companions for an enchanting moment.

Linger on the way and discover all the charm of the destination

Random paths, History has left a thousand footprints in Saumur. They reveal themselves to those who know how to take the time to get lost and observe... Wander from charming village to small town full of character, push the porch of medieval residences, follow a hiking path hidden under the trees...

Each itinerary has its share of treasures! Museum of conceptual art nestled in a 16th century castle, street art park in the gardens of the castle of Candes... When modernity invites itself into the Angevin heritage, visits suddenly take on another dimension!

Discover history and nature differently

It is by changing perspective that the eye and the senses take full measure of the richness of the destination.

Boring, heritage? To keep young and old alike, connected treasure hunts skilfully combine puzzles and discovery of heritage. Go and investigate through vineyards and streets to convince yourself.

Not so wild as that, the Loire? A night in a bivouac after a canoe descent could well change your mind: in the moonlight, in the silence of the Loire islands, an extraordinary fauna slowly emerges from its hiding place. Hush…listen to them!
