This is ideal cycling country, with a new 'greenway' flat cycle route just 3k away. It is worth a visit to the former slate mine located 130m underground in Noyant la Gravoyère (11k) where you can find out about the working life of miners and enjoy a sound & light show. The beautiful, historic city of Angers with its magnificent château is an easy drive from here (45k).
