Welcome to the Domaine de Joreau, the old servants quarters of the Chateau of Joreau in the pittoresque town of Gennes. You will find us in a secluded valley between Loire and forest in walking distance to the town center and just 15 min away from Saumur. It is an ideal starting point to discover the Loire Valley treasures like castles, troglodytes (caves), vineyards and the beautiful river Loire. There is plenty to do for all ages. There are many hiking trails, cycling paths and small country roads to discover the gemstones of the Anjou.

What to do in and around Gennes ?

Gennes is the main village of the community Gennes-Val de Loire, 15 km alongside both sides of the Loire river ouest of Saumur. We have plenty of troglodytes, beautyful limestone castels and manors, and a lot of remarkable historical remains (dolmen, stone formations, roman amphitheater ...). More than 20 main attractions (castels, bioparc, museums, ...) are in less than 40 km around Gennes. You shouldn't miss the hot air ballon flight and a Loire river tour on one of the traditional boats.
