Our two-night stay at Château de l’Epinay allowed us to visit the Château d’Angers, but also the pretty town centre. It is also during this walk that we discovered the Galerie David d’Angers. The weather was wonderful, which helped us visit a city where we had never set foot before.

The city center of Angers is quite small. You can therefore park your car near the castle and then walk through the small streets. Some buildings date back from the Middle Age, such as the Maison d’Adam d’Angers, located not far from the cathedral, which was built in the 15th century. You are bound to love its architecture, with its many half-timberings. It now houses the Maison des artisans.

The small streets of downtown Angers are home to many shops and restaurants. We went as far as Mauvaise Graine restaurant, but we came across many small terraces. Do not miss the visit of the cathedral.
