It’s called the ‘white’,

the colour of the tufa limestone which can be seen on the châteaux and houses in the region.

White is also the colour of the Paris mushrooms, which grow in the dark troglodyte caves, and the sparkling wines of the prestigious houses of Saumur. Located on the left bank of the Loire, the town looks over the river. You can climb up to the château and observe the elegance.

Classed as a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage of humanity, the Saumur Cadre Noir, emblematic ambassador of traditional French horse riding, and the prestigious school training the most talented horsemen and women, are living symbols of it.

Here, history is conjugated in the present.
