As you might saw already on my Facebook and Instagram, during our trip to Angers we had such lavish dinners, Angers Convention Bureau decided to spoil us big time. And it just got better and better every night! On our first night we had dinner at the newly opened Loire & Sens four star hotel resort with 47 bedrooms and suits, only about 15 minutes’ drive from Angers TGV station and next to Angers Golf (18 holes).
When we entered the hotel it still had a smell of new and I liked the warm design, dominated by wood, slate and schist rocks. What particularly caught my attention was the garden which was in its full blossom and I though how nice it would be to bring a group here for a weekend or so, be it for a board meeting with incentive programme or for a wedding. I also noticed that in the outside garden they grow their own herbs. The hotel just opened one month ago and not complete yet. When the hotel resort will be complete, it is to become a destination, with modern accommodation, sports, catering, spa and events facilities.
We concluded the hotel tour with a small aperitif before heading to the restaurant where a table was set for us. Our menu was:
Salad barigoule d’Artichauts Poivrade, Jeunes Pousses en Mesclun
Sandre de nos rivière, Risotto moelleux à la Crème d’Ail, Bouquet de verdure
Crémet d’Anjou aux Fruits de Saison, Coulis de Fruits rouges
Exhausted (the London group had to wake up around 4am) but very happy we made our way back to the hotel.
Stay tuned for more venues and activities from the second day!
