Malicorne-sur-Sarthe bears the French ‘Town of Arts and Crafts’ label and is well-known for its elegant and delicate pierced stoneware. This town is heaven-on-earth for creators, and often welcomes pottery artists, among others…
At the Museum of stoneware and pottery, a ‘Musée de France’, come and visit the inside of the kilns, discover some ancient pottery items or contemporary pieces that reflect a specific period, lifestyle or artistic movement. Whether you are with friends or family, have some fun during your tour creating a Barbotine decorated piece, or sign up to one of the workshops, led by professionals.
If you’re looking for that special unique item or a holiday souvenir ‘Made in Malicorne’, venture inside the workshop-boutiques! You’ll be spoilt for choice.
There’s lots to do in Malicorne-sur-Sarthe: enjoy a trip down the river Sarthe on an electric boat, canoe or kayak, or admire the heritage sites of the town by taking a tour of the castle where the Marquise de Sévigné once stayed!
