We visited recently on an excursion from a cruise on the River Loire. We were very taken with this little town with its steep streets and Italianate influences. The castle, les halles and the church are all worth a visit. See separate reviews.

Great town to visit and where surprised that it looked very Italian, then discovered that an Italian had designed many of the buildings. A real gem and not far from Nantes, would highly recommend a visit.

This small town is so cute and romantic. I have the pleasure of going here for work every year, and a stroll through town is a must. I have recommended some great restaurants if you look at my profile

A beautiful little village, with a lot of charm. Quite quick to visit the center. Don't forget to combine with the castle and a meal - plenty of nice restaurants; also some nice shops.

The rain didn't dampen our spirits of this really pretty medieval village. Lots of quaint little shops and staircases leading to new delights.

Clisson is a beautiful village with a very impressive castle. The views of the river from the bridge are stunning. A very nice day out from Namtes.
