Preparing for your trip to Pays de la Loire

A rural and pleasant region, the Pays de la Loire is characterised by dynamic agriculture and a remarkable environment. Classified by Unesco, the Loire Valley is home to the varied biotopes of the banks of the Loire and the Loire-Anjou-Touraine Regional Nature Park. Added to this are the Normandy-Maine Regional Nature Park and the Brière Regional Nature Park for the first horticultural region in France, which hosts the magnificent Floralies Internationales de Nantes. It is an ideal destination for families who can focus their stay on history and prehistory and around tourist jewels such as the Puy du Fou, Fontevraud Abbey or the start of the Vendée Globe, off the coast of Les Sables-d Olonne. Come and see the smallest book in the world (Musée de l Imprimerie de Nantes) and the replica of the largest gold nugget (Musée du Mange Cailloux in Mortagne-sur-Sèvre). Immense forests, hills and valleys, rivers and waterholes are the setting for numerous nature activities alternating with city stops in La Roche-sur-Yon, Nantes, Angers, capital of the sweetness of Angers, or Le Mans and its 24 hours. You have a choice of atmospheres and activities: welcome to the farm, wine tourism or river tourism, cycling or horse riding, without forgetting good food. A flowery destination to savour.
