Not having visited Saumur before it was a wonderful surprise. Small enough to walk around all of the old town. Fabulous chateau just above the hotel. Great views of the river. We had dinner at the Bistrot de la Place in the main square. Excellent.

Saumur is a delightful town, full of history, places to visit with good restaurants and walks. Car parking can be difficult in summer
There are no lifts but with stair cases like this why would you not want to walk

The restaurants in Saumur are great! The chateau was closed when we were there, but it was beautiful to see anyway. Saumur is a good base for the western Loire.

Recommendations for Saumur

Make sure that you go to the Cavalry Museum. Met at the door by a serving soldier and the displays are some of the best I've seen. Brilliant and only 5euro entry.

From the time you arrive to leaving, there is nothing to worry about. The car in the underground car park, the cafes and the surroundings all good.

All different types of wine,s to taste, plenty of vine yards and caves to visit, tours on the wine making proccess
