The commune of LA CHAPELLE SAINT FLORENT (1306 inhabitants) is located in the heart of the Mauges and the triangle NANTES ANGERS CHOLET. In a hilly and green setting, the village is surrounded by the EVRE river which flows into the Loire, only a few kilometres away.

With a good commercial, wine-growing and agricultural artisanal dynamic, and animated by a strong associative life, the commune prides itself on benefiting from very attractive tourist sites and activities:

Cirque de Courossé

Panoramic view: Loire Valley

Wine cellars

Hiking tours

It is possible to stay on site thanks to the various Gîtes de France and furnished tourist accommodation, or the camping-car area. If you are only passing through, the picnic areas of Coulaines, or the one of the mill, offer all the amenities.
