Just inland from the Atlantic and surrounded by the departments of Touraine, Poitou, Brittainy and Normandy, all the wonderful things to see can be found within a 30 mile radius of Angers. To have so much crammed into one small area is such an advantage to any tourist who can hop from one place to another, this makes it ideal for a weekend break, or a longer delightful stay.

Our region is home to some 1200 chateaux and stately homes which makes even the smallest villages you come across interesting. Many of these chateaux are owned by celebrities, even the chateau at Tigne is owned by the famous French actor Gerard Depardieu. Having been to several of the chateaux in Anjou, we would highly recommend a visit to the chateau at Brissac, Visit their website at www.chateau-brissac.fr nothing is left to the imagination regarding period furnishings, all can be seen in their full splendour.

Have you heard about indoor bowls The game of the Loire and said to have been invented by bargemen to amuse themselves playing in the hold. The aim of the game is to get as near to the Jack as possible, but the pitch is concaved not convex. The bowls have flattened ends and are biased to one side like English bowls. Pop into a local club and see the game played, YOU WILL SURELY BE WELCOMED.

So much to do, so little time!
