Le Chardon

Walking in The Loire Valley

Take a stroll

The area is ideal for walking, whether it is just out of the gates of Le Chardon into the lanes and down to the Canal du Dive, some 800 metres away, walking amongst the tree lined canal where you can see a large variety of birds, otters and the fish jumping, or down the lanes around the villages where the buzzards and harriers glide as they look for prey.

For the more enthusiastic walkers there are various Discovery trails which cover nature and heritage, chateau, troglodyte sites, vineyards, forests and more.

The booklet showing all the recommended routes is in the house or can be obtained from the Office de Tourisme. www.saumur-rando.com
