Chalonnes-sur-Loire and its isle

The town of Chalonnes-sur-Loire is located at the confluence of the Layon, the Louet and the Loire. Take a stroll around the heart of the old town, and wander along the quays, which bear traces of the intense activity they have witnessed over the years. Must-See Curiosities: the old lime ovens, and the Tour Saint-Pierre – the only remaining vestige of the old feudal castle.

Travel across its island, which is the Loire’s most densely-populated (about 300 inhabitants). Once reserved for growing hemp and willow, it is now an ideal spot for family outings.

Montjean-sur-Loire

Between the banks of the Loire and vineyard slopes, Montjean is bound to surprise you! An industrial heritage, coal mines, former hemp farms and their 24 lime ovens. An artistic heritage, featuring Monumental Sculptures - fruit of the eponymous Symposium which has been held every year since 1997. A riverside heritage, with its quays, the Loire marina and to admire the Cap Vert – a genuine 1930s self-propelled barge.

Saint-Florent-Le-Vieil and its Abbey

A very important site in the Vendée wars, this ‘Petite Cité de Character’ (Small Town full of Character) is easily identifiable by its Abbey. Perched on the top of Mont Glonne, this edifice bears witness to the pardon of General Bonchamps, sculpted by David d’Angers. Its esplanade offers one of the most beautiful panoramas over the Loire Valley.

The Julien Gracq Promenade

A promenade upstream and downstream of the quay of the Loire (about 1.5 km), measured out by the texts of Julien Gracq, a famous writer of Angevin origin.
