Known as the garden of France, where orchards and vineyards flourish, the Val de Loire has yielded a delicate cuisine and sought-after wines. Come and try our Anjevin wines and gastronomy, and our syrupy wines at the Cointreau distillery in Angers and the Combier distillery in Saumur, not to mention the Bourgueil, Coteaux-du-Layon or Sancerre.
Come and visit our abbeys: the abbaye Royale de Fontevraud, the abbaye de St Maur, the prieuré de Cunault, and our museums: Musée des Blindés (tank museum, Saumur), Musée de la Communication (museum of communication, Saint-Barthélemy-d'Anjou), Musée du Champignon (mushroom museum, Saumur), and the Musée du Masque (mask museum, Saumur).

In an area of 400m², you'll be able to enjoy seeing the artist's works, displayed in the galleries. Allow yourself to drift away with the poetry emerging from this thoroughly organic space.
