Turquant, the arts and crafts village

A small place of great character, firmly set on the Loire, Turquant is situated between Saumur and Montsoreau. This charming village is distinguished by its pommes tapées (dried, compressed apples), one of Turquant’s discoveries, the tasting of which is a must - and even more so in the hillside troglodytes which have been remarkably well preserved. To ensure the protection and enhancement of this exceptional heritage, a unique project for the creation of an arts and crafts village has seen the light. Leaf gilders, jewellery creators, and leather craftsmen display all of their know-how based on the art of fire and stone. Also be sure to visit the Arts and Crafts Centre - a place where significant value is placed on local know-how.
