    Our main building is located in Angers, at the edges of the River Maine. Though don’t be surprised to see us hanging out in University Hospital of Angers.

    Angers enjoys a rich cultural life, made possible by its universities and museums. The old medieval centre is still dominated by the massive château of the Plantagenêts, home of the Apocalypse Tapestry, the biggest medieval tapestry ensemble in the World. Angers is also both at the edge of the Loire Valley, a World Heritage Site, and the Loire-Anjou-Touraine regional natural park.
