This circuit is impregnated with the sweetness of the Anjou area. You will be struck by the architectural harmony that reigns in these places, thanks to EPV-labelled companies working with noble materials such as slate, terracotta and bronze. Pass your fingers over the leather or wood which, once rough, is now so smooth after the care received from the artisans’ hands. After completing this tour, you will be filled with a sense of well-being, as if the world, for an instant, had taken on the softness of tufa.
