Our village Pouançay

Just a quick walk from La Bellevue is the reputed restaurant Trésor Belge open for lunch, dinner and ‘happy hour’ between 5pm & 7pm (closed Mon & Tue). A scenic walk of 9km & 12km is mapped and starts in front of the Mairie passing by vines and troglodyte caves, while a leisurely potter to the Table d’Orientation, particularly spectacular at sun-set, gives an impressive 360° view of the surrounding region, highlighting châteaux and points of interest.

St Leger de Montbrillais

(2kms) neighbouring Pouançay is a great little village for pick-up’s, St Leger has a post office, hairdresser, boulangerie (closed Wed), and a highly reputed boucher much favored by ourselves, we highly recommend trying the rillettes d’oie, and be prepared to queue on a Sunday morning!

Montreuil-Bellay

(8kms) boasts a magnificent château whose impressive walls circle the town. Host to a weekly market and monthly Brocante (flea-market) there are a variety of brasseries and restaurants to choose from. Hire a kayak/canoe and spend time on the river, Le Thouet. Visit the château, take a tour and sample their wines. Picnic on a lovely grassed area shaded by trees at the edge of the river.

Saumur

(25kms) twined with Warwick in England, Saumur is home to the Cadre Noir the National Equestrian School of the elite French Cavalry whose remarkable horsemanship can be seen at shows between April & October. Stretching along the banks of the Loire river the town is dominated by the impressive Château de Saumur originally constructed to protect the river crossing from Norman attack, later destroyed, the château was rebuilt by Henry II, King of England (1154) and first Plantagenet king.

Saumur is a delight to discover. Take a river boat ride and potter around the town enjoying the architecture. Visit Distillery Combier where the famous liqueur d’orange is made, created by Jean-Baptiste Combier in 1834. Saumur hosts a weekly market and monthly brocante (flea-market), the wonderful Anjou Vélo Vintage (June) and Festivini wine festival (September), alongside activities and exhibitions throughout the year.

Chinon

(31kms) sitting on the banks of the Vienne river Chinon’s rich history dates from early man. The impressive Fortress de Chinon sits above the town and served both French and English Kings, also famously visited by Joan of Arc. Chinon warrants a full day of exploring, the town is a delight to discover, full of charming buildings, paved and narrow walk ways, hosting a market every Thursday and brocante (flea-market) every 3rd Sunday of the month.

A visit to the the Fortress is highly recommended not only for the outstanding views but rich history. Henry II King of England and first Plantagenet King (1154) extensively developed Chinon, married to Eleanor of Aquitaine they are buried in neighboring Fontrevraud l’Abbaye, alongside their son Richard I the Lionheart, King of England (1189). After Richard I’s death (1199) Chinon was passed on to his son, John. In 1205 King John lost the fortress to the French, Philip II Augustus, and became part of the royal duchy of Touraine.

Worthy of a visit is Chapelle Sainte-Radegonde, it’s a steep walk from the town and remarkably half constructed in the rock face. Once a pagan site of worship, Christianized in the 6th Century, it is the fresco of 5 riders, believed to be Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine with their son which is the attraction and remains in wonderful quality today.

Things To Do

Discover fresh food markets, weekend brocantes (flea-markets), picture-postcard villages along the banks of the Loire river. Explore the gardens at Villandry, the exceptional Bioparc in Doué, take a boat ride along the Loire, canoe or kayak, sample local wines, discover The Plantagenets and visit the châteaux towns of Amboise, Angers, Azay le Rideau, Brézé, Brissac-Quincé, Candes St. Martin, Chenonceau, Chinon, Fontevraud l'Abbaye, Langeais, Loches, Montsoreau, Montreuil-Bellay, Saumur, Richelieu, Tours, Ussé, Villandry - all of which make a fabulous day out!
