Discovery

We’ll take you to the airport in Ancenis. Upon your arrival, you’ll meet your pilot and head out for a helicopter tour of the Loire. You’ll enjoy a bird's-eye view of breathtaking landscapes. You’ll fly over the tower in Oudon, whose medieval architecture reaches towards the sky, dominating the city of Ancenis, then farther along the châteaux de Clermont, a Renaissance-era building in the style of Louis XIII that was also the home of French actor Louis de Funès. Next you’ll notice the Île d’Or golf course, built in a unique setting on one of the islands of the Loire. The minutes tick by and soon it’s time to return to Ancenis. On the way back, you’ll fly over Champtoceaux, without a doubt one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the Loire.
