Self-catering holiday rentals in for your home stay in the Pays de la Loire

France's Pays de la Loire winds its way around the beautiful Loire River with historic towns and cities, sited all the way along. The countryside is classic France. You will want to stop and just breathe in the fresh air along the river. All of this is available to you from your vacation rentals. Take the city of Tours. This ancient city will welcome you with its famous Gothic cathedral, which dates from the 12th century. Park the car and walk around, for this is a small place and you might like to spend time in a cafe, just taking in the scene. Bicycles are available for you to hire and this is an ideal way to take a ride along the river itself. Stop on one of the bridges and see why this is rated as one of the most beautiful cities in all of France. Tours likes to call itself France's garden, with good reason. Of course the wines here are famous. A visit to one of these vineyards from your vacation rentals is a perfect group activity. And why not buy some of these superb local red and white wines to take home? Or perhaps to enjoy with some of the excellent local produce to enjoy at your self-catering holiday rentals. Angers is a smaller place, and just as delightful. Lovers of fine art shouldn't miss the local Museum of Fine Arts. There is the historic castle with its many towers that will delight any family on an outing on a short break from your vacation rentals. Even on the most casual drive from your holiday rentals, often at the weekends, you'll come across markets that take over entire towns. These are well worth a visit, both for local produce and for unusual souvenirs to take home. Take a cruise from the city of Nantes down the Loire itself, the river that is the very reason for all of the history around it. To the north of the region the city of Le Mans is a beautiful enough place, with a historic centre and cathedral. And lovers of motor sport will know it as the home of the Le Mans 24-Hours, one of the most famous motor races in the world, a festival in its own right that you will never forget. When there is no racing, at other times, you can drive your own car down these roads, since the race uses public highways. The crash barriers remain in place, and you can imagine yourself travelling at three times the speed, as the racers do. The motor museum at Le Mans is a must for anyone with the slightest interest in motor-sport. Elsewhere the city of Nantes has an art festival in the summer, another must for art-lovers, when the entire city is turned over to fine art. Then you can return home to your holiday cottage down roads lined by trees, through villages where locals sit quietly enjoying a glass of wine and feel truly at home in France.
