    Zoo de Doue

    by smirnofforiginal Written Apr 27, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I am not particularly keen on zoos. However, this one I liked. Set in another troglodyte world the animals all appear to be healthy and well cared for. No pacing here. In fact the conservationists have made all the enclosures as close to their natural habbitats as they could which means that whilst some animals happily flaunt themselves for you, others you need to really strain your eyes to find.

    There is of course the obligatory goat petting area!

    We went here after we had been to the mushroom caves but you cuold quite easily spend a full day here.

    We all enjoyed this.

    Musee du Champignon - the mornings outing chosen by 2 small boys who had seen a postcard of mushrooms with faces. Not particularly wishin to go into (another) cave to look at mushrooms but more believing that they wouldn't really, we tried to disuade them but it was no use... so the mushroom caves we headed... and d'ya know what I would recommend them!!!

    The facts you learn about the multitudea of different mushrooms. It is a thoroughly interesting place - no matter what your age - and we, four, had a great time!

    And, when you purchase your ticket you have, for a small amount more, the option of purchasing a ticket for Parc et Lumiere. In yet another cave the whole of Saumur has been carved, in miniature, out of rocks with amazing detail and scale. It's all lit up to make it all the more atmospheric.

    The very good vintages of Saumur!

    The Caves of Louis Grenelle

    Be sure to visit one or two of the many wineries in and around Saumur. This region is particularly well known for its fine sparkling wines. The entire region is pockmarked with limestone quarries and caves, which have provided some excellent soils for the wines, as well as deep caves for the wineries themselves. I visiting the "caves" of Louis Grenelle, a very hospitalable vintner. They have an interesting tour of their deep and well-maintained caves, as well as a generous tasting at the end of the tour.

    Nice privately guided introduction to famous wine producer.
    Sweet red sparkling wine is worth of tasting in addition to the more classic dry bubbles.

    A lovely browse along all the stalls. It really is colourful streetlife. It's not common to bargain in France. But nonetheless, you might pick up a nice new bag or something for your garden.

    Saumur castle and Loire river

    This was an impressive looking castle high above the Loire with great views. I enjoyed the fact that it was made from the white tuffa rock of the area.
