Thouarcé - Chalonnes-sur-Loire Exploring the vineyards Val de Loire

The Thouarcé - Chalonnes-sur-Loire itinerary takes you to the very heart of the Coteaux du Layon and Aubance vineyards. Discover a steep landscape that is a patchwork of vines, mills, wine-growing estates and character properties. By following the old railway tracks of Petit Anjou, you’ll find yourself hugging the meanders of the Layon – a river very much appreciated for its fishing.

Wine-growing villages in Loire-Layon

Thouarcé: this little village, through which the Layon flows, is a charming place to stop en route. As you wander through, let yourself be seduced by the cachet some of the old houses in the town centre and surrounding streets.

Rablay-sur-Layon Artists’ Village: The wine-growing commune, which counts a few less than 800 inhabitants, is an essential place for lovers of contemporary art! Since 1987, thanks to the work of a very determined ‘Village d'artistes’ association, Rablay has been promoting contemporary art that is accessible to all.

Saint-Aubin-de-Luigné: Discover the picturesque ‘old homes’ circuit, which takes in 30 listed sites dating from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries – including the Chateau de la Haute-Guerche.

Chaudefonds-sur-Layon: In the 13th century, this village was known as Calidus fons, (hot fountain) because of its spring. A lime production site from the 15th to the 19th centuries, the town of Chaudefonds still boasts many ovens dating from that time.

The Layon: a vineyard, a river

Pedal alongside a vineyard 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’: bridges, locks and watermills. Not forgetting the Pont Barré site, whose heritage value is at once natural, geological and historical.
