The whole team is happy to announce reopening of sites

of the Mushroom, Stone and Light Museum and Puygirault Gardens

Saturday May 16

Visitors very often tell us when discovering our sites for the first time:

« You don't have to go far to discover wonders »

or :

« It's often what you have near home that you know the least ».

From Saturday 16 May, whether you come from Angers, Le Mans, Tours, Cholet or Poitiers, you are 100 km around, you can come and recharge your batteries by discovering or rediscovering the heritage riches of our three Site (s.

Each site is unique with the world and mushroom cultures for one, the most beautiful monuments of the Loire Valley carved in stone for the other, and a journey into the history of vegetable gardens for the third.

Three independent sites and yet a single destination that words bring together:

culture, beauty, work, taste, earth, matter, contemplation ...

Three sites in a single coherent whole which evokes and reveals something of the relation of man to himself, to nature and to others.


Our technical team of gardeners - mushroom makers has multiplied their efforts so that our visitors can benefit from the reopening and in the best conditions of three authentic experiences.

In addition, essential sanitary measures (signage, hygiene, maintenance, protective masks, distance), the tours are equipped to be able to visit freely, without grouping with tours and flow control (groups of 10 people max ).

We look forward to meeting you for moments of sharing and conviviality!
