Garden Club visit

The garden club invites you to discover the beautiful gardens in the area! This free activity is open to library members and offers visits once a month to the garden of the Manoir de Châtelaison.

The owners of this 15th-century manor have created a series of interconnected gardens, divided by hedges of charme, buis and If, with water pools, fountains and cascades and mosaics; giving the impression of much more than 8000 sq. metres of space.  The visit is accompanied by Mr Gentilhomme and costs 5 euro.

For more information and/or to sign up for this visit please send an email to gardenclub@ellia.org.

The garden club invites you to discover the beautiful gardens in the area! This free activity is open to library members and is organised once a month.

The September visit will be at the Château de Bazouges-sur-le-Loir. The château is dramatically positioned on the banks of the River Loir, next to the last operating needle dam (barrage à aiguilles) in Sarthe with a 15th-century watermill.  Built from the XV to XVII centuries, the château has a moat and towers, with traditional french terraced gardens. Both the mill and the explanatory exposé on the workings of the dam can be visited.  Entrance fee is 6 euros.

For more information and/or to sign up for this visit please send an email to gardenclub@ellia.org.

Get ready for three days of great street theater in Angers and some delicious food made specially by the volunteers at the library!

The Accroche-coeurs is a yearly festival and has for their theme this year “So British”! Full program can be found by clicking here but do make a point of coming by the library’s food stand on the Place Freppel…come and see the team in costume, eat some of the lovely food (coronation chicken, scones and much more!) and support the library all in one fell swoop… The theme of our food stand is the Beatle’s Sergent Pepper’s album so come and sing along with us!

Walk and Talk

Walk and Talk

hiking boots
Time to get outside! Get on those hiking boots and take some time to revel in the great outdoors! The idea is to organise an easy walk once a month – approximately 10 km, 2 to 3 hours, in the afternoon – in order to discover or re-discover the beautiful hiking paths of the Maine-et-Loire. Come along with good walking shoes, protection against rain, cold or heat according to the season…. a bottle of water and a little “en-cas” to keep you going ! Maximum group is 20 so make sure to sign up!

Want to sign up? Easy as pie!

Sign up by sending your name, email address and phone numbers (perferably cell phone) to this email address. You will be sent full details of the walk in due time.
