The loudunais have their say

The ♥ hits of the Loudunais

[We tested it for you]

Since July 14, the Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers has been hosting summer evenings every Thursday between 7pm and 10pm.

This is an opportunity to enjoy a drink on the terrace, sample local terrines in a festive atmosphere facing this “architectural folly” in a new light, as the last rays of sunlight illuminate the façade of this “sleeping beauty”.

The magnificent event space, built by Ateliers Delattre in the park overlooking the château, satisfies requests for a bar, light refreshments, or borrowed board games.

On these fine summer evenings, people happily settle down outside on tables…or straw bales, an improvised garden lounge version, facing the château.

Young and old alike can play on the grassy area adjoining this pavilion: badminton, giant Mikado, volleyball, Breton shuffleboard…

In summary: A lovely evening in the heart of the Loudun countryside, in the heart of a world where nature and architecture intermingle 😉

My favorite is Moncontour, of course! I call it “la perle verte” (the green pearl), because we’re on a particularly intensive nature reserve, and when you arrive here, you find yourself in the middle of a fantastic environment.

My favorite is the Moncontour wash-house circuit.

I’m a big fan of the feudal period, so the 16th century Château de Coussay, just a stone’s throw from Monts-sur-Guesnes, is my favorite. It looks like a fortified castle with its towers. It’s very explicit with its many remains. It makes you want to pass on your know-how.

The Tour Carrée district, with its view over the Loudun region, its medieval garden, its medieval remains, its maze of narrow streets…
