Western Loire is a mixture of worlds, from the royal chateaux scattered throughout the fertile valleys to the sandy shores of the Loire-Atlantique. The town of Nantes, on the Loire River, is home to several spectacular churches and the classic fairytale castle, Chateaubriand. A birthplace of French folklore, Western Loire is also close to the Atlantic coast, where fish break the quiet surface of hidden bays and where the locals live their lives with bucolic ease and charm. With mild winters and temperate summers, a visit to this region is ideal at any time of the year.
Some of the region's top attractions include:
If you're visiting in June, you'll be able to take in the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans auto race. Held annually in Le Mans, this is one of the most storied events in sports and makes for an unforgettable live experience.
Vacation rentals are widely available in the region, and options for all budget ranges are plentiful. Staying away from the hubbub of the region's hotels by renting your own apartment, chateau, or cabin will help make your vacation more relaxing and enjoyable.
If you're craving more French adventure, Western Loire is close to Paris. Head into the majestic city for a day trip, or continue your vacation in one of the world's most romantic cities.
