Pays-de-la-Loire is a region on the coast of France to the west of Paris. Rent a gite or a villa in Pays-de-la-Loire this year for a chance to get closer to nature and witness the lush forests, winding rivers and the sandy beaches.

Pays-de-la-Loire is ideal for a relaxing holiday break, and there are plenty of activities to keep you occupied during your stay here. Along the coast, why not try sailing or any other water sports you choose? While you are inland, go cycling, pony riding or walking in the lush, green forests.

Fortunately, Pays-de-la-Loire is blessed with an excellent climate with mild springs and autumns, comfortably hot summers and gentle winters which makes spring and autumn particularly good times of year for all the sporting activities that are available here. The diverse range of landscapes and varied agriculture that goes on in this rich and beautiful region can be explored for hours at a time. If you want to soak up the sun while the kids are taking advantage of all the activities that are available in the region, then the perfect spot for you is sure to be here along the never ending coastline. Stay in a French holiday rental to enjoy all that this region has to offer.

Take a break from the range of activities and make time to enjoy the capital city of the region. Nantes is the sixth largest city in all of France. As an old urban sea port back in the eighteenth century, Nantes acquired a great deal of wealth which is apparent today in the city's architecture and heritage. The stunning sea front and châteaux in the city centre and surrounding area makes Nantes a very attractive tourist attraction. Various festivals take place in Nantes and the rest of the region all year round, and there is always something exciting going on! Head to a charming French restaurant to enjoy the local pork dishes, cheeses and butter biscuits.
