This is just a small selection of places to visit and things to know during your stay in Anjou. We will complete it with small articles in our blog.

Gennes and surroundings

Gennes offers an exceptional area of nature, history and authenticiy. 15 km west of Saumur, the Gennois (the county around Gennes) has the highest concentration of Caves and Stone Formation in Anjou as well as many Gallo-Roman remains. The most famous is the amphitheater of Gennes. 
 The Loire villages of the Thoureil, Chenehutte-Treves-Cunault are two "Small Towns of Character" bordering Gennes. They are perfect for easy walks, where you can see the old ports, stone embankments and traditional Loire boats.
