 Pays de la Loire

The Pays de Loire is a region with many faces, between sea and countryside, and which abounds with a rich heritage and natural resources.  The Loire Atlantique and the Vendée border the ocean where the coast is very popular especially in summer.

The best-known resorts are La Turballe, La Baule, Pornic, Saint-Gilles Croix de Vie, Les Sables d'Olonne, and La Tranche sur Mer. The islands of Yeu and Noirmoutier also wait to be discovered. Visit Nantes, follow the routes of its vineyards, visit the salt marsh at Guérande, and walk in the Brière Regional Nature Park: these are among the many activities offered by the Loire Atlantique.

In the Vendée you could have a day out at Puy du Fou, or a walk in the pastures of Rocheservière or the area around the Vendée marshlands.  Turning inland, Maine, Loire, Mayenne, and Sarthe also offer visitors a multitude of activities: visit Fontevraud Abbey, the château of Plessis-Bourre à Ecuillé, the Archaeological Museum of Jublains or the troglodyte village of Rochemenier, travel the ‘wine routes’ of Anjou, Yvré l’Eveque, Chateau de Montmirail, Le Lude, and La Fleche without missing the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Pierre de Solesmes in the Sarthe valley.
