Angers is a middle size city located about 45 minutes from Nantes. it is easily accessible by train. We went there in February, the sky was a bit gray and the flowers weren’t blooming but the view from the castle was still amazing. We walked around a bit, saw the cathedral, the oldest house in Angers, a few statues and the castle. A lot of restaurants were closed for lunch, which was strange.
We had lunch in a restaurant near the castle called “Chez toi” The service was not so friendly and the food was okay, but not great. Not recommended!
On the other hand, the food we had as a snack at the cafe inside the castle, was outstanding. Lots of organic choices and delicious desserts at very affordable prices. in the summer, you can eat outside in the castle’s gardens. We suggest making a reservation.
Here are some pictures from the cafe:
The castle is easily accessible. We walked directly from the train station to the castle in about 15 minutes. There is a lot more to do in Angers but winter is not the best season for many of the activities the city has to offer.
