The town of Le Lude is a typically French market town lying in the elegant winelands of the Loire. It is especially renowned for its fabulous castle, the Château du Lude. The Château du Lude is an absolutely superb example of the fairy-tale castles of the Loire and is really worth a viewing. Le Lude benefits from a good climate, with moderate temperatures and plenty of sunshine in the summer time. It is a lively town with a good collection of amenities. There are all the shops you could hope to find, including wonderfully French boulangeries. Then there are supermarkets and all the usual service industries too. Every Thursday sees the arrival of a traditional outdoor market, and on certain summer evenings the town also puts on atmospheric night markets. Situated close to the famed Le Mans motor racing circuit, and also to the city of Angers, this of course is the famous Loire valley wine domains and vineyards, and only 40 minutes from Tours airport, just perfect to come and see and to taste the wines!
MORE ABOUT THE AREA: Pays de la Loire and the Sarthe Valley
Located in the Western part of the department of Sarthe, lies the wonderful Sarthe Valley, which offers charm, tranquillity, good wine and food in abundance. The Sarthe region needs very little introduction, everyone will know of 'Le Mans 24 hours', but the Sarthe has so much more to offer than speed and cars. The overlooked Cité Plantagenêt (Old City) of Le Mans, the Benedictine Abbey of Solemsmes, the town of Sable with its 19th century castle and marina, the small character town of Parce-sur-Sarthe, the stunning earthenware town of Malicorne-sur- Sarthe, and the impressive château at Le Lude. The Sarthe and the Loir Rivers run through the picturesque countryside, and there is a particularly rich and varied architectural heritage to enjoy. The Sarthe Valley offers everything in step with your lifestyle, whether it be golf, cycling, swimming, restaurants, fishing, theatre, Le Mans 24 hours, manmade beaches, country walks, forests, or just relaxing, it has everything for everyone. Sarthe specialities are really worth tasting! The wines from The Loire Valley remain relatively undiscovered and are absolutely delicious, try these with the local specialty 'rillettes' and perfect crusty bread!
These are all the reasons to come and discover the Wonderful Sarthe Valley!
