The Ruillé forest is located in the department of Sarthe in the Pays de la Loire region, surrounded by the regions of Brittany and Normandy.
Near the 12th century Romanesque church of Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul and the magnificent Manor de l'Aurière, not far from the ferruginous springs that have made the town famous, also known for its "Jasnières" growth, stands the Ruillé forest, composed mainly of Oaks and Chestnut trees. This territory bordered by the Loir, rich in vineyards and limestone hills that provide tufa, which is the prestige of the cliffs of Saumur and Bourré, offers exceptional qualities and presents itself to nature as a real showcase for development.
