    The city of Feneu, located in Mayenne, offers a rich and natural heritage with wooded countryside area near the low valleys of Angers, integral part of the landscape identity of the Angers region. You will discover a very interesting and diversified construction heritage: châteaux, a 11th century church with its 17th century pietà, the town hall in an old presbytery and beautiful middle-class residences.


    Touristic places

    - The Port Albert site is located 1 km away from Feneu town centre. This site is a proof of the presence of a former port, a stopping place for different ships like scows transporting salt, Loire wine, tuffeau stone, slates from Trélazé, etc. Its verdant landscape also brings many fishermen.

    - Sautré watermills, built in 1285 to protect the château facing it and watch the traffic on the river. The last mill operated until 1980.

    - The château of Sautré, built on a spur, was a defensive structure against Norman people in the Middle Ages.
