Montjean Sur Loire

Montjean sur Loire, Maine et Loire is today a small village on the bank of the Loire, with a picturesque quayside from which you can take gabare trips in the summer.

The village wasn’t always so peaceful, however. In the 1880s it was the second most important Loire port, after Nantes, and the main site of lime production in the west of France. A group of lime kilns still existing in the commune, at Pincourt, have recently been classified as an historic monument, due to their strange, chateau-like construction.
