From Saumur-take the route du Mans out of the town, heading north. Follow signs to Vernantes/Noyant/Le Lude. In Vernantes, follow the D58 signed for Mouliherne. At the crossroads just after the Chateau du Loroux, and directly opposite 'Plaisance', take the right hand lane. (Signposted). Follow for approx. 1 mile, and you'll see Le Chant d'Oiseau is on your right. Coming from the North, and Mouliherne, take the D58 to Vernantes. At the 'Croix du Justicion', turn left. (Signposted from here). Follow the road, taking your first right. Past the farms and Le Chant is on your left! See you there!
Visit the Chateau de Saumur, 22kms to the south, or the Musee des Blindes (tank museum), if horses are more your thing, then the Cadre Noir (French National Equitation College) is well worth a visit. Visit the 'Carrousel' in July for a stunning display of horsemanship. Learn more about the Plantagenet Kings & Queens of England by visiting the Abbaye de Fontevraud (Richard the Lionheart's burial place). Not to be missed is one of France's best days out-the 'Le Grand Parc Puy du Fou' at Cholet (1 hour). West coast beaches are only 2 hours away. No wonder the Loire is known as 'The Valley of Kings' with so many Chateaux belonging to former Kings & Queens of France dating back to the 12th Century!
