City breaks in the towns of the Loire Valley

Angers, Nantes, Saumur, Orléans, Blois, Tours…. Rich in heritage, history and architecture, these cities are emblematic of the Loire Valley. Their cultural events and emblematic sites provide plenty of reasons to come and wander through the heart of them. 

New in Angers: a fresh start for the Oisellerie

Two young Angers residents recently bought one of the oldest houses in the city centre to transform it into a charming guest house!
This half-timbered building, built around 1580, is listed as a historic monument. It is now possible to come and stay here and from spring 2018, the Oisellerie will be an ideal holiday destination for a city break in Angers.
