Incredible hidden doble treasure
Aug 2013 • Friends
You want to discover the nicest wall painting from the 15 th century that I know ?
You want to test excellent red wine carefully produced (some of them 10 years old !) ?
You want to meet Maryse who is a wonderful owner-guide-winemaker-historian and specialist of opera voices ?
Go to Pimpéan in Grézillé a hidden place between Saumur and Angers (www.pimpean.com)
In a hudge casttle built at various times, there is an untouched chapel with incredible paintings from the "Bon Roi René" time (15th century). They are so nice and lively that it is hard to beleive that they were never restored but it is true !
Two essential advices : please study carefully your road map to find the place or use your GPS and make an appointment with Maryse : 06 85 31 07 86 to let her welcome you with all her natural kindness and expertise. And don't forget to test the wine a degustation is included in the visit : you will love it !
