From Montsoreau you can discover the Loire on a gabare, a traditionnal wooden & flat bottomed boat made to navigate on the Loire river. It is another way to admire our region.
You can also combine a cruise on the Loire between Montsoreau and Saumur with a wine tasting. Indeed, Denis Retiveau, vinegrower in Montsoreau, owns a gabare and takes you on his boat to show you the beauty of the Loire river while you’re tasting his red, white and rosé wines. From the boat you’ll see the wildlife that nests on the banks of the river, the castle of Montsoreau, the troglodytes in the hills dominating the Loire, etc. and the Loire itself, with its wonderful changing colors.
At the end of the cruise, if you want to learn more about the wines of Denis, you can go to his cellar to taste and buy some bottles !
A nice way to discover the Loire Valley !
