Clisson is worth a visit for the chateau and also on Friday's a very large market. There are also lovely marked walks around the town and its surroundings including a lovely river.

This is not a cite medievale but a 18th century romantic town built on a medieval site, with its original chateau and a few other vestigaes and street patern. I think this makes it unique, normally at that time they attempted recreations (for example Carcassonne)...More

The site is magical, set in a river valley at the junction of two streams, Le Sèvre and La Moine. One can see why two eccentric brothers decided to do a very odd repair job it in the early 19th century, by Tuscanizing it! When...More
