Hiking GR of Pays Saumur Loire Valley
In the heart of nature

Our most beautiful hikes, over the seasons

When nature matches its colors to the seasons, the trails become… magical! Take a safe walk on the marked paths and discover our favorite hikes, granted at each time of the year. Along the walks, the essence of Saumur characterizes the stages. Mosaics of vineyards, enchanting panoramas over the Loire, troglodyte passages and emblematic monuments will be your traveling companions.


Follow the hilly GR® to Dampierre

The GR® stage in Dampierre is a hilly playground that we love in the spring for the fresh tint of the vineyards we cross. A true concentrate of Saumurois, the walk gives grandiose glimpses of the Loire, the troglodytes on the hillsides, the wine estates or even superb mansions steeped in history.

Take advantage of the shade and the water in Rou-Marson

Some freshness ! This is what this 8 km loop that crosses the charming village of Rou-Marson promises. Renowned for its castle, its troglodyte remains and its fouées, Rou-Marson is a wooded town with a remarkable historical heritage. In summer, we appreciate its pond, the atmosphere of its fountains-washhouses, or its land art course under the trees!

Playing hide and seek with the Loire at Thoureil

In winter, the landscapes of the Loire are magical. Whether it glides calmly through the mist or sparkles like a diamond in a ray of sunshine, the river captures our full attention.
