Activities around the gîte

The Vignes et Mines gîte is situated near to Angers in Maine-et-Loire, a county where History and Nature are interwoven and where you can never be bored. A specialist in tourism for 20 years, Hélène is happy to accompany you on personalised tourist excursions to help you discover the multiple attributes of our region.

Visit the vineyards of Anjou-Saumur

The Loire Valley vineyard is characterised by its great richness. From the sweet white wines of the Coteaux de Layon, the Quarts de Chaume and the Coteaux de l’Aubance to the Anjou red and the sparkling Crémant de Loire.

Hundreds of estates on the wine route open their doors to you, for the greatest pleasure of your taste buds.

Tastings are arranged on request with our wine-maker partners.

Immerse yourself in nature

A region surrounded by nature, Anjou is the ideal setting for your hikes.

Just a few minutes away from the gîte Vignes et Mines, the Loire and its tributaries offer you a wide range of outdoor activities: canoe fishing with rides aboard the Gabarot, a traditional Loire boat.

From the house you can also take the Vignoble Layon Aubance cycle route, which will rapidly take you to the river Loire by bike; it is one of the most beautiful cycle routes in France.        

Bikes, by the way, are available on request and you will find electric bikes for hire from our partner.

Drive into the history and heritage of Anjou

Formerly a prosperous duchy which developed around the Loire, Anjou benefits from a rich history and a breathtaking heritage.

From the tapestry of the Apocalypse in the Château d’Angers, to the Château de Brissac , the Château de Serrant and continuing past the Petites Cités de Caractère villages, get ready to experience a journey through time with Hélène, your personal guide.

Discover activities for young and old

Entertainment, too, plays an important part in our beautiful region. Near to Angers, Terra Botanica will reveal to you the secrets of plants, whilst the Puy du Fou, recognised as one of the best theme parks in the world, will plunge you into history.

In Nantes, you can set out to explore the intriguing Machines of the Isle. Your children can equally enjoy the Parc de l’étang family amusement park and the Jardin des kangourous (Kangaroo garden), leisure sites in direct proximity to the gîte Vignes et Mines.
