20 km from Saumur, located on the borders of Touraine, Deux-Sèvres and Vienne, Puy-Notre-Dame, classified as a “Charming Village”, has retained all of its authenticity. The main economy of the village is based on viticulture.
The name Puy-Notre-Dame comes from the association of the Celtic word Peuch which means small mountain and the cult of the Blessed Virgin. In the 11th century, the Puy hill was called the Colline de Marie. The Collegiate Church was created by Louis XI.
