If you're interested in chivalry, then in the Maine-et-Loire you'll adore the Anjou capital, Angers.It occupies both banks of the Maine, which is spanned by six bridges. The district along the river is famous for its flourishing nurseries and market gardens. It is well known for its fresh produce and cut flowers. The site of a massive and ancient château, the city is also noted for the impressive twin spires of the twelfth century Cathedral of Saint-Maurice.The elaborately sculptured eleventh and twelfth century arcades of the famous abbey of Saint Aubin survive in the courtyard of the Prefecture and Hotel du Departement. The Hôtel de Pincé or d'Anjou (1523-1530) is the finest of the stone mansions of Angers. There are also many curious wooden houses of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, not forgetting Adam's House, the oldest house in Angers with its typical slate roof. Much to see and do and plenty of Bed and Breakfasts in and around Angers to choose from!
