This beautiful, rural part of France has much to offer.
With the great River Loire meandering its way virtually straight through the heart of this region, access to this famous river is easy and you are never far away from it!
As you travel through the local countryside la Loire appears often unexpectedly around the next corner, or you can see regular glimpses of it glistening through the trees or snaking its way down in a valley.
And, of course, around its edges and banks, within its gorges and surrounding hills, there are great opportunities for messing about in boats.
The regional canal system, too, is also near to hand, and provides even more accessibility to the essence of the glorious countryside around, and all its natural beauty and treasures viewed from a different perspective than by road.
There is plenty to do here in le Roannais -fishing, swimming, canoeing, cruising, hunting, rafting, walking, cycling, horse-riding, golfing, gliding, ballooning, ski-ing – the list goes on. All these activities, and many more besides can be found here in le Roannais, and other nearby regions which are easily accessible.
