There are a lot of vineyards...
There are a lot of vineyards nearby Clisson. They produce Anjou Wine (red or white)and the famous MUSCADET.
We enjoyed a 'Porte Ouverte' by a wine grower in Beaulieu sur Layon and we tasted his 'Coteaux du Layon' which is sweet white wine. I brought a sufficient number of bottles to taste for some years in the future.
The Largest City in the Pays de la Loire
"Our only visit to Nantes"
We chose to stop at Nantes for the day enroute from a stop at La Jaille-Yvon (near Angers) at our favorite B&B chateau before a two week ramble through Brittany (first stop Locmariaquer and Gavrinis). We chose to stop at Nantes because we had become captivated by French castles (chateaux) and cathedrals and Nantes had one of each. We had seen almost all the important ones further up the Loire in Centre as a prelude in other years.
"We Did Not See the City"
We parked outside a lovely park-garden area across the Cours F. Roosevelt from the Chateau, which gave us access immediately to the chateau and the r. M.-Rodier which led up to the cathedral. Time did not permit us to explore further.
"What We Missed"
There is not much else that is very old. WWII finished most of that since Nantes is a seaport. There are several interesting museums that we would havee enjoyed. However, thr Chateau had some others within its walls such as one of Breton costumes
