Want some time for two and a unique experience together? Come to Angers for a weekend and discover Terra Botanica, the first theme park in Europe dedicated to the world of plants. Enjoy a weekend of quality time together and visit the utterly charming city of Angers for a taste of its famously gently way of life.
One day to experience the unforgettable Terra Botanica park
Do something completely different on the first day of your stay by delving into the extraordinary universe of Terra Botanica. Surrounded by over 500 000 varieties of plants from the four corners of the world, simply follow the route through the park for an exciting visit that will give you great memories together.
Revive the child in you as you follow the journey of a drop of water in the 4D cinema, as you hunt for amber, or as you cross the path of dinosaurs. And if you fancy a moment of peace and tranquillity, climb aboard one of the park’s boats for a trip on the water and a magical spectacle of floral colours and shapes. Continue your visit with a wander through the butterfly house where fluttering wings will brush up against you. And to finish on a fantastic note, take a ride up in the largest gas balloon in the world (a supplement of €3 will be charged for the balloon ascension).
Enjoy a taste of Angevin art of living
After a day wandering in search of rare plants, you’ll enjoy putting your feet up for the evening and tasting a glass of locally grown wine, at the terrace of the Cale de la Savatte or Héron Carré cafés beside the river Maine. After a good night’s sleep and a breakfast of fresh croissants, you’ll be ready for your second day, when you’ll take life easy in the city of Angers.
Stroll the streets of Angers
Walk around this multi-faceted town and you are sure to stumble across some charming and authentic sights. In the city’s historic quarter, what could be nicer than getting lost, hand in hand, in the paved streets and discovering traditional 15th-century houses? At the end of these streets is the castle (entry not included in the stay). Step inside this fortress to enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of its internal courtyard and take time to look at the Medieval Apocalypse Tapestry (the world’s largest of its kind), which is preserved here like a treasure. For lunch, try the Crêperie du Château for an intimate atmosphere, the La Ferme restaurant just opposite the Cathédrale Saint-Maurice, or La Villa Toussaint, before continuing your afternoon with a visit to the sublime David d’Angers Museum.
