AROUND THE ANJOU REGION
Le Serpolin is situated in a quiet little hamlet nestled in the tranquil French countryside and surrounded with the Anjou Vineyards. The beautiful nearby towns of Saumur, Angers, Cholet, Doue La Fontaine, Thouars, just to say a few, are fabulous places to visit with lots to see and do.
For the energetic, we are situated perfectly for walks and cycle rides around the Anjou Vineyards and due to the flat and quiet roads, you can go as long or as short a journey as you wish. There are plenty of other options such as horseriding, swimming, karting, canoeing, golf etc to keep you going. The nearby towns have great chateaux, Troglodytes & Sarcophages, museums, gardens/parks, theme parks, restaurants, shops and much more...….
The nearest villages of Nueil-Sur-Layon (5kms) and Vihiers (9kms) offers post offices, boulangeries, banks, supermarkets, tabac/bars and restaurants.
Information leaflets can be found in our communal wash house, along with maps of the local area.
