Brissac Chateau

Very close to Angers (15 km), Brissac-Quincé is at the heart of the Aubance. Its chateau dating from the 15th to 17th centuries has 7 floors and more than 200 rooms! The visit can only be beautiful: the ceilings are replete with gold leaf, the furnishings precious, and the Belle Époque theatre is a lovely thing to behold

Ponts-de-Cé …according to legend

Ponts-de-Cé was built by Julius Caesar. The town, which is split in two by the Loire, had a great many bridges to facilitate transport. Someone wanted to name it "Les Ponts de César" (Caesar's Bridges). But Caesar prevented him from doing so, and chopped off his head just as he was forming the "S"!

The Aubance Vineyards

At the heart of the Aubance vineyards, the village of Brissac-Quincé boasts more than 400 hectares of vines. Recognised designations (appellations), including the famous Coteaux de l'Aubance and Anjou-Villages Brissac. A wine tasting opportunity not to be missed!

Layon Vineyards

Pedal through another vineyard - this time one that is famous for its sweet, white nectar! Follow the sinuous path of the Layon, and scattered along the way, you’ll discover the vestiges of a pre-Revolutionary development which allowed wines to be transported - the ‘Canal de Monsieur’. Don’t miss: the Pont Barré – a place emblematic of the Vendée Wars, and a richly-endowed natural site.
