Clisson is a very touristy town, by the River Sevre and Moine River. This confluence of rivers has given the town a remarkable cultural and historical richness. Its situation, just 30 minutes from Nantes, makes it the perfect getaway if you want to get to know the Pays de la Loire area. The medieval castle, built on a hill by the river, is impressive. The structure of this fortress is spread over the valley and the city. The French style of the town center a touch yellow, a sweet taste, almost Tuscan. Its endless vineyards and poppy fields form the shadow of the castle. What gives you the feeling you are entering in Tuscany are the red tiled roofs and the village church. They very well reflect the changing times and styles that took place in Clisson around the year 1500. A key moment for this region. And if you're looking for a fun alternative to history, I recommend that you get into a kayak and go down through the course of the rivers in order to enjoy the beautiful country places. A nice excursion which will truely amaze you.
Very close to Clisson we found this amazing garden. It was an old manor game reserve, at present the space is dedicated to the preservation of regional and exotic flora. Created in 1805 by the sculptor Frédéric Lemot, Le Garenne Lemot has become a bucolic garden full of romance along the banks of the River Sevre in Nantes. A walk full of ornamental decorations that evoke ancient times, the arts and local history that occurred here. With references to the Italian style and you cannot stop admiring the decorative architectural elements in buildings and real pine lush vegetation accompanying the ride. From the terraces you get a great view of the city of Clisson and the ruins of the medieval castle. At the top of the garden, the buildings are in the Italian style, taking the visitor back to the Renaissance Tuscany. Its red brick buildings with gray touchs give a hint of abandonment that allows it to sell its dreamlike image more. A place worth seeing and very colorful.
