Pays de la Loire Tourism

The Pays de la Loire region is probably best known for the UNESCO-listed Loire Valley.

Loire Valley between Sully-sur-Loire and Chalonnes:
The Loire Valley is an outstanding cultural landscape of great beauty, containing historic towns and villages, great architectural monuments (the châteaux) and cultivated lands formed by many centuries of interaction between their population and the physical environment, primarily the river Loire itself.

The Loire, fed by tributaries such as the Mayenne and the Sarthe, is France's largest river.

There are also some twenty-five resorts to choose from along the region's rocky Atlantic coastline, with sandy beaches and plenty of coves to explore.

Grand Parc Puy du Fou:
The popular theme park is located about an hour south-east of Nantes.
