Association Pierre de Ronsard is the name of the society in charge of organizing cultural events called Les Rendez-vous de la Possonnière in Le manoir de la Possonnière, the birthplace of the famous Renaissance French poet, Pierre de Ronsard (1524-1585).
Every year a topic theme connected with the poet is selected.
Le Manoir de la Possonnière is located in Couture-sur-Loir, a village located 15 km West of Montoire-sur-le Loir, 5 km East of La Chartre sur Loir.
The manor has been owned by a council of “communes” since the year 2000. The site is composed of a manor house, early Renaissance style, troglodytic dwellings where Ronsard’s family lived before he was born and a charming rose-garden.
