Montsoreau - Saumur Exploring the vineyards Val de Loire Anjou and its Heritage Unique Anjou

Logo Loire à Vélo

Between Anjou and Touraine, this route will take you through the prestigious setting of the Loire and its chateaux. Along the banks of this legendary river lies one of the most beautiful villages in France – made famous by the Alexandre Dumas’ lovers. Hugging the banks of the Loire, you’ll be able to meander through the very guts of the soft stone, travelling past the troglodyte dwellings dug into the slopes - where a plethora of stately homes are tucked away, built of ‘tuffeau’ stone, extracted from the huge local quarries. If you choose the Montsoreau-Saumur itinerary via the slopes, you’ll be able to meander through the vineyards, taking full advantage of a unique panoramic view over the Loire!

Montsoreau

Les Imaginaires de Loire at the Montsoreau chateau: This enchanting tour is both moving and evocative - set out for a voyage around the Loire in the company of the Dame de Montsoreau - heroine of the famous novel by Alexandre Dumas. A unique experience, thanks to the spectacular direction of the sound and light show.

Montsoreau - Saumur : vue troglodyte

The troglodytes

Typical traditional dwellings in Val de Loire, these buildings dug into the very rock are mainly used as cellars and storage areas... Take a break at the Village des Métiers d’Art de Turquant and discover the craftsmen and women in their workshops, or take a look at their work in the 200 m² troglodytic gallery area! Bordering the Loire, in Souzay Champigny, experience the buzz as you travel along the underground street dug out in the Middle Ages in a network of quarries. When it’s time to eat, take a break in one of the ‘troglo’ restaurants, which specialise in Fouée (or Fouace), a little bun baked in a stone oven.

Le vignoble

The Vineyards

The Vineyards of Saumur - and more broadly, of Anjou – count more than 20,000 hectares of vines! The wealth and diversification of its "terroirs" offer an exceptional product, with no less than 30 Registered Designations of Origin (Appellations d’Origine Contrôlée): red wines, sparkling wines, dry and sweet white wines and rosés.

Montsoreau - Saumur : vue Chateau 2

Saumur and its Musée de la Cavalerie

Forget about your bike for a while, and step into the prestigious surroundings of the old ‘Cadre Noir’ stables. This museum retraces six centuries of history – from Charles VII in 1445 until the present day –of a world-renowned cavalry.
