  • Discover this old convent from the 15th century, built on King René’s order. You will be amazed by the unique view as soon as you will step inside. This convent has been built upright on a rock overlooking the Maine river, which gives you an outstanding view. You will also discover a church created directly in the side of a rock and 14 gardens with springs and ponds. It is the perfect place to recover, in the cloister in particular. Take some time to rest for a moment on benches and to enjoy the light from Loire.
    You will like:
    - The anecdotes of the family owner who will share the history of the place.
    - The chestnut vault of the chapel dating from 1452!
    - The exotic setting and typically Angevin with shale at all levels.
