Ruillé-sur-Loir is a commune in the Sarthe department in the Pays de la Loire region in north-western France.

The village has a medieval and Renaissance parish church but is dominated by the school and the mother house of the order of Sisters of Providence (which enjoys links with England, the Netherlands and Madagascar). The tall spire of the conventual church is visible at a distance.
