Nature adventures or riverside sports in Anjou
Terra Botanica is a seriously fun theme park.Here, you’ll travel through time and space on a botanical adventure and discover how humans relate to plants. It is no coincidence that such a park is located in Angers, one of France’s most horticultural towns.
Not far away, the Bioparc in Doué-la-Fontaine is another site unique to Anjou. With tufa stone caves as a backdrop and a groundbreaking visitor experience, Doué is no ordinary zoo.
If you want your holiday to include some sporting endeavours, then why not go canoeing on the river, or follow a section or two of the Loire à Vélo cycle paths? For a wealth of sport under one roof, go to GlisséO in Cholet, where you can swim, skate and slide to your heart’s galore.
Loire Valley has something for everyone
Anjou has fun places to stay for both the young and the young at heart. Sleep in a troglodyte bed and breakfast or hotel, pitch your tent or rent a chalet on one of the many campsites. In Huttopia Saumur campsite the children can even have a pony ride on site and at L’Isle Verte in Montsoreau you can stay in a lodge on the banks of the Loire.
Whenever you visit, there’s always something going on in Anjou. Admire the costumes at the carnival in Cholet, listen to live music at the Accroche-Coeurs in Angers or celebrate the saumur-champigny wine appellation in Saumur, during les Grandes Tablées.
