Saumur is a town in the Maine-et-Loire area which is part of the Loire Valley region.

You may be familiar with Saumur because of its well known chateau, the  Cavalry school and also for its wines.

Today, we would like to share some of the best addresses in this beautiful area for if you decide you may like to spend your holidays at our Camp Castel Domaine de la Brèche.

During our last stay in the region, we particulary enjoyed the restaurant La Grange situated in the barn! So cosily decorated!

You will find a wonderful atmosphere, a warm welcome awaits you.

One would almost imagine being at home 🙂

On the cooking side of things, if you like delicious small dishes simmered with love, you are at the right place! The ingredients are sourced  from the region, consequently as fresh as can be.

You will be seduced by a simple menu which changes as the seasons go by, from the fields to the sea, with flair and imagination!

You cannot visit Saumur without visiting l’Abbaye Royale de Fontevraud. It is known to be the largest monastic city which originated from the Middle Ages.

We highly recommend Thibaut Ruggeri’s restaurant, a prize-winner of the Bocuse d’or in 2013. The cuisine is contemporary and exquisite!

This gastronomic establishment motto is “make something beautiful with something good”. You will find four different degustation menus including one for children.

Delicious culinary suggestions whilst on holidays with the family 🙂
