Travel Guide to Pays-de-la-Loire Province in France

The Pays-de-la-Loire has a complete contrast from the lushness of the countryside and the Loire river, through to 300km of Atlantic coastline with long sandy beaches and enchanting bays, plus there are islands like the Noirmoutier and the Yeu.

Exploring beyond the busy valley, the tourist can drive deeper into a undulating and quiet hinterland where chateaux, abbeys and mansions reveal the testimony of its rich past, as this region of France has always been a popular place for kings and nobles to live.

Pays-de-la-Loire Province of France

They built their elegant chateaux throughout this beautiful area, and many of which have been restored over the years, and are inhabited by their owners, who open them to the public.

Any motor racing enthusiast cannot visit this area without knowing about Le Mans, and the yearly car race known as the "24 heures", which attracts visitors from all over the world.

Yet don't forget some of the traditional cities like Angers and Nantes where you can not only visit the many castles, chateaux and museums but you can lose yourself among their picturesque winding narrow streets leading to provincial markets and busy shops.

For the wine connoisseur the Pays-de-la-Loire produces an astonishing variety of wines that range from dry to sweet and from still to sparkling, with fruity, rosés, and light red wines you can taste a delicate bouquet full of the characteristics and flavour of this region.  Have you ever tasted Muscadet, Gros-Plant, Gamay rosé or Cabernet?  There are also other lesser known varieties of wine to try as well, so be careful, or you may find that you will not be travelling that far!   

Also, did you know? Jules Vernes, the author of "2,000 leagues under the sea" was born in Nantes!
