About France

Among the numerous attractions provided by Saumur is the world-famous Cadre Noir, the French National Cavalry School, providing spectacular displays of horsemanship.

You must not miss either the 14th and 19th century UNESCO listed castle that gracefully dominates the river. Strolling about the city centre you will admire Notre Dame de Chantilly’s church and beautiful facades dating back to medieval’s and renaissance’s periods. Discover the "champignonnières", the mushroom farms, and have a wine tasting. You can see in Saumur the biggest Neolithic’s dolmen of the country, called the dolmen of Bagneux.

You will also find different museums such as the one of the armoured tanks.

We were obliged to change our Paris departure to Saumur trip at significant additional cost which was unfortunate and not entirely fair "
