Pays de la Loire

4.2
With 368 km (230 miles) of Atlantic Ocean coast, Pays de la Loire is a region rich with picturesque ports, renowned seaside resorts, salt marshes, and a strong maritime tradition. As a vivacious region, it hosts two legendary races, the 24 Hours of Le Mans car races in June and the Vendée Globe sailing races in November. With five departments, the majority of the famous châteaux and attractions of the Loire Valley are located in the Centre region, and not in the Pays de la Loire, despite the name. However, you will be happy to find that the weather is mild and conducive to biking, strolling, boating, and sightseeing around the region while discovering its secrets, such as its vineyards and wineries from Saumur to Anjou. Take a look at our France online tour itinerary planner to refine the details of your trip to Pays de la Loire.
