An Italian Touch at the Heart of Vineyards

At the heart of Loire vineyards, right between the Loire Valley Castles and the Atlantic Coast, lies the charming village of Clisson. A surprising and colorful Italian touch.

It is after the French revolution that Napoleon's sculptor, Mr. LEMOT, has settled down near Clisson. His deep attachment to Central Italy style led to path to the reconstruction style: shimmering colours, bricks and tiles started to widespread in the region. Simultaneously, with the success of the wine industry families, neo-classic style Italian villas completed this unique framework.

The charm of the place perfectly suits the "Southern" atmosphere of the Loire River sides. Why not stopping over to discover this charming place after a private vineyard visit?

private visit guérande salt marsh france

Guerande salt, the white caviar of the sea

With its solid ramparts, Guérande could be compared to a "Carcassonne of the west". But behind its stone belt, the slate roofs of the old houses remind us that this City of art and history is indeed Celtic.

Its opulence comes from the salt marshes, magical and sparkling places to discover in the morning or at sunset when the basins display incredible shades of silver, blue, green and pink.

Discover the salt marshes as well as the harvesting techniques of Guérande salt flower, the white gold of the saltworks, through a private guided tour.

La Bretesche, golf course between Loire & Brittany

Set in a beautiful 100-year-old forest, Le Golf de la Bretesche stretches out below the chateau, at the heart of a 200-acres estate. The magnificent 72-par 18-hole course is 6015 m long; the greens are fast but steady. The oak, pine, white beech and red willow-lined fairways are cut into diamond shapes. Unusually, the tees are planted with rosebushes, hydrangeas and rhododendrons and the ninth hole is one of the finest on the course thanks to its breathtaking view of the medieval chateau.
The course was designed by Bill Baker – designer of the Haut Poitou and Nîmes Vacquerolles golf courses – and attracts “golf-tourists” from all around the world. However, with only a few well-placed bunkers to negotiate, golfers of any handicap can play at La Bretesche
