On 8 May 2015, Fontevraud-l’Abbaye inaugurated its new-look Place des Plantagenêts, freshly renovated as part of a village-centre requalification programme designed to make the utmost of the surroundings of one of the UNESCO site’s most emblematic monuments, the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud.
The partners involved in the Angers Tourism.Lab project undertaken by Angers University aim to make Pays de la Loire a European leader in the fields of academic and applied research on tourism, training in professions linked to the sector, and innovation in tourism companies and tourist destinations.
On 9 April 2015, a partnership agreement was signed at Chambord between the National Estate of Chambord and the City Palace of Udaipur, managed by the Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation. This is the first cooperation project between the Loire Valley and Rajasthan. Developing exchanges between the Loire Valley châteaux and Rajasthan’s palaces was a shared wish, jointly expressed by Laurent Fabius, France’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Initiated in 2014, the Résidence Ackerman + Fontevraud La Scène is mounting its first exhibition, set to open on 3 April in the Maison Ackerman cellars. Created by the artist Julien Salaud, the work “Fleuve Céleste” (Celestial River) takes over its setting, endowing it with a fragile and ephemeral stellar vault that is to be on exhibition for the next three years.
Tourism is one of the mainstays of our local economy – a key source of employment and of major importance to our national and international reputation. The aim is to reap our fair share of the rewards in the offing due to the growing numbers of tourists worldwide (overall figures are forecast to double by 2030) by implementing a concerted strategy. This is why the Indre-et-Loire General Council entrusted Touraine’s Départemental Tourism Agency with the task of drafting a competitiveness plan for the Touraine-Loire Valley destination, which was voted on by the Départemental Assembly on 13 February 2015.
