La Forge:

 

17th century former winemakers house with “troglodytes” (caves), 5 minutes from Brissac-Quincé and 15 minutes south of Angers in the Loire Valley (Anjou).


The small town of Brissac-Quincé is just 5 km away with a well-stocked supermarket, several bakeries, restaurants and cafés. There is an outdoor swimming pool here and the Chateau de Brissac is the tallest castle in France.

The lovely city of Angers (capital of Anjou) is only 17 km. away. It is historically known for its 13th century medieval fortress, containing the priceless Apocalyptic tapestries. Angers offers everything you want: a big market for vegetables, fresh fruit, fish and meat, brocante, etc. on Saturday morning, art galeries,museums, beautiful parks, shops, restaurants, etc.

There is a wonderful 18-holes golf course just 15 km away.

Nearby are several quaint castles to visit along the river Loire: Chinon, Langeais, Saumur, Azay le Rideau, Villandry and Usse, also known as “Sleeping Beauty Castle".

It takes only 20 minutes to drive to the medieval walled towns of Montreuil-Bellay and Doué-la-Fontaine with its Troglodyte sites and restaurant, one of the most beautiful zoological gardens from Europe and rose gardens. During the second week of July Doué hosts the colourful spectacular “Fête de la Rose” in the Roman Arena and underground caves, attrackting over 45.000 visitors!
Don’t miss the famous “salt lakes” from the Guérande!
