Cholet : Michelin's recommendations
An airy town in the modern urban style, Cholet is dynamic and flourishing. It has preserved the memory of the tragic events of the Vendée wars, the massacres and the fires. Sited in the heart of the Mauges with woods, pools, parks and chateaux, Cholet is proud of its textile industry first mentioned in the 11C; the handkerchief (originally imported from Italy), the famous «white of Cholet» has given up centre-stage to high quality household linen.
