Bouzillé

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Maine-et-Loire

The story goes that the giant Gargantua, staying in the region, had to tie people to read and the Marillais that everyone thought was halfway between Angers and Nantes. To delineate these two villages and state as precisely as possible the balance, Gargantua put his left foot on Nantes, Angers on the right foot and relieved himself. Everybody shouted then: "Bouse is!" and the town was born.
