The Loire Valley region
The Loire Valley is famous for it's beautiful Chateaux but there many other things to see and do within a very short distance. There are lots of different types of wine produced in the region, varying from red to white to rose and sparkling. The area is generally flat making it ideal for cycling with a cycle path running alongside the river starting from the Atlantic Ocean which will eventually cross the rest of Europe. Walking is also very popular with plenty of tracks through the forests or round the local lakes.
For those who enjoy gardens there is a huge variety to see as well as the French equivalent of the Eden Project, Terra Botanica at Angers.
La Croix Joreau is 45 minutes from Angers, Tours and Le Mans, and 20 minutes from Saumur. Within such a small area there are many things to see and do - Chateaux, Zoo's, Vineyards, Troglodytes, Museums - even driving down the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans.
In the village there is a lovely bar run by Alain and Bernadette, which is next door to the Musee Jules Desbois who was a famous sculptor. There is also a small supermarket, Post Office and hairdresser's.
Surrounded by apple orchards and forests, there are nearby lakes at Rille and Hommes which are ideal for swimming, fishing or picnicking and at Rille watching the bird population from the viewing points.
