The Mayenne is one of the most beautiful waterways in the whole of France. On your way to the lovely village of Chenillé-Changé, you will pass Entrammes, famous for its Roman baths, Chateau Gontier and its magnificent gardens and then Daon, where you can try your hand at water skiing, while the children can play on the water slides. When you arrive in Angers, make sure you visit the magnificent 13th century castle and La Doutre, the quarter around the port.
