Enterprise car hire locations in Angers

The lively university city of Angers is on the threshold of the Loire Valley and not far from the confluence of the Loir, Mayenne and Sarthe rivers, which flow into the river Maine. The latter crosses Angers and gives the city much character. The old town is nearly all pedestrianized and has a vibrant cafe culture, as well as many pleasant restaurants. Angers is very well connected to the wider region, with the A11 Nantes-Paris route, the A87 Angers/Les Sables-d'Olonne, and A85 Angers-Saumur all accessible to motorists. The city is well known for two sets of incredible tapestries, one in the Jean Lurçat museum and the other in the city's medieval château. This is less than a mile from the Enterprise branch by Angers train station. Angers also benefits from a second Enterprise branch at Angers Airport, for those flying in to the region.
