Saumur & Fontevraud Day Trip
After picking you up at your hotel in Nantes at 8 am, we'll set off for two of the most beautiful villages in the French department of Marne-et-Loire: Fontevraud and Saumur.
We'll first visit the Royal Abbey of Notre-Dame de Fontevraud. Did you know that, during the Middle Ages, this monastic complex became the largest in Europe? As we'll see inside, the size of this Benedictine temple is impressive due to the colossal dimensions of the cloister, the refectory and the other rooms, which in the past accommodated both monks and nuns.
After touring the abbey, we'll continue by following the road that runs parallel to the Loire River. This motorway will take us to the town of Saumur, to visit a local winery and learn the secrets of the famous Anjou wine. Following on, we'll head to a bistro in the historical centre of Saumur to have a delicious typical French lunch, including various local specialities.
After lunch, you'll have an hour to explore Saumur at your leisure. In the afternoon, we'll move to the outskirts of the city to discover the charms of the Château de Brézé. Inside, which you can visit on your own, you'll discover the secrets of the alcoves of this beautiful medieval palace in the Loire Valley, where there is even a troglodyte cave underground!
Finally, at 7 pm we'll return to your hotel in Nantes.
This tour includes pick-up and transfer back to hotels in the centre of Nantes. If you are staying in other more remote areas, we will pick you up at the Bacchus bus station, located on Avenue Allée de la Maison Rouge.
