Saumur View Loire
Not to be missed

48 hours in Saumur


In the heart of the valley of the Loire castles, classified as World Heritage by Unesco, Saumur inevitably arouses emotion. Perched on the hillside, its fairy-tale castle has watched over the city at its feet for more than 1000 years. The Loire, below, has imprinted its rhythm, an immutable lullaby, on the territory. It's up to everyone to imagine their route, fun or connoisseur, to discover all the facets of Saumur.
