Between Nature and History…
Reception at 09.00 at the base at St Martin de la Place, where, after the necessary formalities (hire contract and payment), you will be equipped and taken by minibus to Chouzé-sur-Loire. After a short briefing you will embark in canoe or kayak and navigate the Loire, passing before the imposing castles of Montsoreau and Saumur.
Don’t forget your picnic!
Montsoreau was made famous by Alexandre Dumas in his novel “La Dame de Montsoreau” (translated into English under the title “Chicot the Jester”), and the castle of Saumur owes its fame to King René, Duke of Anjou.
Your journey begins with History and ends with Nature.
You finish the day at the heart of the “Parc Naturel Régional Anjou-Touraine” at St Martin de la Place.
