The tours "Petites Cités de Caractère" in the Gennois

Le Thoureil and Chênehutte-Trêves-Cunault are 2 of the 13 villages listed as "Petites Cités de Caractère" in the Maine et Loire. For these, tours invite you to discover their rich history, from the Neolithic, to the merchant navy on the Loire, passing by the gallo-roman period.

These two villages have their own interactive information point working throughout the year. The one in Le Thoureil is located 27 quai des mariniers and the one in Chênehutte-Trêves-Cunault is at the Pont Pouillet's car park, at the entrance of Chênehutte when you are coming from Saumur.

Leaflets of these tours are available at the two information points, at the tourist office in Gennes, or can be downloaded on this site.
