Vintage spirit

A 100% vintage getaway

Vintage is trendy! But it's also a fun way to dive back into the past and learn things while having fun. So, for a day or an afternoon, we follow in the footsteps of our (great-great!) grandparents for two unusual outings.

Shopping of yesteryear "At the old shops" of Doué-en-Anjou

How about we go window shopping like our ancestors?! At the Doué-en-Anjou Museum of Old Shops, twenty shops from yesteryear offer an exotic experience imbued with nostalgia

From storefronts to furniture, through merchandise, we discover trade from 1850 to 1950. We come across the clog maker, the toy seller, the druggist...

We push the door of the millinery, the grocery store, the country bistro… and even that of the dentist of the 1950s, not even afraid!

Do not forget to contemplate the place: the museum occupies sumptuous stables, built in the 18th century.

Vintage bike at Bouvet-Ladubay

Tour of the cellars on an authentic "vintage bike" at Bouvet-Ladubay

The fine bubbles of Saumur are a must!


But did you know that you can visit the Bouvet-Ladubay wine cellars by bike? Convenient for exploring the kilometers of galleries dug into the tufa! And to make the experience even more memorable, the house lends you your two-wheeler: an authentic “Anjou Vélo Vintage”…

By the light of the headlights, we unearth the little nuggets sculpted on the walls and the treasure of this “sunken cathedral”: the method of manufacturing the thousands of bottles stored there….

Of course, after the effort, a little comfort: time for tasting!
