This Loire Valley gem of a town is just minutes from bustling Nantes and left me feeling I was in Tuscany with its Italianate architecture. I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend of discovery in this valley town and considered it a perfect for FRANCE Magazine readers to come to away from the bright lights of Nantes.
