Charming villages to visit right nearby Angers

These villages have all the traditional local features like narrow streets and houses dating from the 15th to the 17th century. Nestled between meadows and woodland, these villages have not aged a bit, allowing you to escape to where time has stood still.

Don’t take the peace and quiet to mean dull, though. These villages have plenty of character. They wouldn’t have survived the test of time if it wasn’t the case.

The prettily named villages of Béhuard, Bouchemaine, Blaison Gohier, Cornillé-les-Caves and Savennières are all lovely places for an outing. Fans of heritage, nature, and good wine will adore all of these little gems.
