2237 FRANCE (Pays de la Loire) - Forest of Chandelais
The forest of Chandelais is the most remarkable forest of Anjou, in the lower Loire Valley, near Le Guédeniau. The 1000 hectares of forest of tall trees (mainly oak and beech) and kilometres of paths was the hunting grounds with hounds of Good King René (1409-1480). It is ideal for walking, horse riding or cycling, and also for picnics. The forest also has a wide variety of edible mushrooms that are the delight of connoisseurs.
