The Tourist Office is committed to welcoming, advising and assisting visitors to ensure that their stay is comfortable and tailored to their needs, and has created a range of facilities for people with visual, hearing or mental impairment or who have reduced mobility.
As part of this approach, we have brought together all the public facilities, tourist sites, leisure activities, rides, accommodation, restaurants and picnic areas that are accessible in our region.
Here are the top activities recommended by the Tourist Office if you have mobility problems:
- The Little Vineyard Train (Petit Train des Vignes) in Chalonnes sur Loire
- A boat trip on the Loire with Terre et Loire in La Possonnière
- A flight in light aircraft leaving from Saint Georges sur Loire
- Exploring the tourist route through the vineyards
The Tourist Office team will help you. Come and see us!
The whole team has been made aware of disability and will help you prepare a holiday that is comfortable and suited to your needs.
The Loire Layon Tourist Office has held the national ‘Tourisme et Handicap’ award since 2014 for those with visual, hearing or mental impairment or who have reduced mobility.
