Montreuil Bellay - a walled town with a castle

Montreuil Bellay is not just a pretty town. It's got a rich history and heritage, evidenced on first sight by the surrounding walls and imposing castle that grab the eye of any visitor. Sitting on the banks of the River Thouet, the town is surrounded by the stunning countryside of the Loire Anjou Touraine Natural Park, and is an idyllic spot for fans of wildlife and natural pursuits. The important city of Saumur is nearby, and Montreuil Bellay is easily accessible from the UK by air, rail or road.

Getting to know Montreuil Bellay

The town has a wonderfully romantic atmosphere thanks to its location, castle and mediaeval character. But it's more than just a heritage town. Modern life goes on here, and you can find shops, a supermarket, services, as well as bars and cafés to make life easy and enjoyable. There are various celebrations (fetes, concerts, exhibitions) that take place during the year in town too, so don't miss them if you happen to be around. And if you're considering moving to Montreuil Bellay and you have children, there are several schools available.

Heritage on offer

The town is clearly mediaeval, with its dominating moated castle and encircling walls. With no less than eighteen monuments listed in the Historical Monuments Register, there's plenty for heritage fans to discover. After the castle, take a look at the Augustinian convent, dating to the 17th century, or the 12th century Benedictine priory. Add to the list a couple of menhirs, a parish church, an old mill - or just enjoy the glorious natural heritage provided by the River Thouet and its surrounding landscapes.

Enjoy a plethora of outdoor activities, visit the seaside or go wine tasting

There's no shortage of activities in the area. The river offers opportunities for fishing and boating, while golfers can access a good course within an easy drive of the town at Saumur. The very name of Saumur is synonymous with equestrianism, so horse riders will be in their element. Visit the National Stud, or watch an incredible exhibition of horsemanship by the world famous Cadre Noire. Other places to visit nearby might include La Rochelle at the coast, as even the seaside is only a couple of hours drive away. And, don't forget that Montreuil Bellay is in the very heart of one of France's finest wine regions. Vineyard visits and wine tasting are always on the menu!

How to get there

Airports within easy reach of Montreuil Bellay include Nantes, Tours, Poitiers and La Rochelle. If you're taking a ferry across to Calais, the drive from there takes around six hours. Caen and Le Havre are a little nearer, with a drive of around four hours to reach Montreuil Bellay. The nearest motorway is the A85, though access to the town would be via the D347, D761 or D938 roads.

Montreuil Bellay is a desirable location, there can be no doubt. After all, who wouldn't want to live in or near to a beautiful mediaeval town and wake up to castle views! However, property can be quite reasonably priced, especially in comparison with similar places in the UK. Villages and rural properties just outside the town are frequently found on the market, so take a look.
