The Anjou Loire Valley Tourist Board is strongly committed to ensuring tourist attractions are accessible to all visitors.
To this end, it has created an eBrochure, Accessible Anjou, where tourists can check the facilities offered by museums, parks and gardens, leisure sites, restaurants, and accommodation providers. Look out for the special “Tourisme et Handicap” label too.
This is a Ministry of Tourism initiative that encourages service providers to cater for the requirements of the disabled. An increasing number of sites are being accorded this label, giving you the freedom of holidaying independently, as easily as with family or friends.
What better example than the capital of Anjou! The “Circuit confort en centre historique" is a marked out tour that guides you around the most outstanding tourist sites.
Admire the château d’Angers, a magnificent medieval fortress; the beautiful Musée des Beaux-Arts picture gallery, built entirely in gleaming white tufa limestone; the impressive sculptures in the Galerie David d’Angers; the painstakingly restored Carolingian Collégiale St-Martin; the St-Maurice Cathedral with its Angevin or Plantagenet vaulting.
Audio and brail guides are among the tools designed to put you at ease and let you concentrate on what’s important – enjoying yourself!
