Saumur, enjoy its Cadre Noir and its castle along the Loire river
Saumur is a pleasant 28.000 inhabitants town located along the Loire River, in the Western part of France. It can boast about having an important heritage and it offers the visitor a lot to do and see. So just come and see by yourself!
Among the numerous attractions provided by Saumur is the world-famous Cadre Noir, the French National Cavalry School, providing spectacular displays of horsemanship.
You must not miss either the 14th and 19th century UNESCO listed castle that gracefully dominates the river. Strolling about the city centre you will admire Notre Dame de Chantilly’s church and beautiful facades dating back to medieval’s and renaissance’s periods. Discover the "champignonnières", the mushroom farms, and have a wine tasting. You can see in Saumur the biggest Neolithic’s dolmen of the country, called the dolmen of Bagneux.
You will also find different museums such as the one of the armoured tanks.

Travel was largely smooth and comfortable. Original booking allowed 65 minutes between arrival at Gare de Nord and departure from Montparnasse which was not enough. We were obliged to change our Paris departure to Saumur trip at significant additional cost which was unfortunate and not entirely fair
