What to see and do

ile d’yeu avec maison plage et fleurs

L’île d’Yeu

Welcome to l’île d’Yeu, a little bit of heaven on earth located in the Bay of Biscay, in the Vendée department. Lovers of quiet, protected nature and physical activities, you’re in for a treat! Your stay promises to be filled with amazing discoveries, strolls and bike rides on the Côte Sauvage or downtime at the beach. An island you’ll never want to leave!

Nantes

It would be a shame to go all that way without checking out Nantes, the region’s capital. But Nantes is much more than that, it’s a city steeped in History where you learn as much as you have fun. No wonder it was elected “most pleasant city in Europe” by Time Magazine in 2004. Architectural heritage, half-timbered houses, the Château des ducs de Bretagne, cultural and artistic events and much more, are so many reasons to visit this beautiful city!

Noirmoutier

Noirmoutier is another haven of rest in the Pays de la Loire. Located north of l’île d’Yeu, also in the Bay of Biscay, it is nicknamed “mimosa island” because its mild weather makes it possible for mimosas to grow in winter. In Noirmoutier, you’ll find untouched nature, dunes, oak and pine forests, as well as a protected fauna, like on the butterfly island, the biggest butterfly tropical greenhouse in France. And that’s without mentioning activities like bike riding, swimming, energy strolls and visits of the very typical salt marshes.

What to do in the Pays de la Loire? 3 activity ideas

Relive History in one of the majestic French châteaux

If the most famous Renaissance châteaux are located in the Loire Valley, the Pays de la Loire also have its share of little gems you’ll want to visit. What about diving into this sumptuous period of History with the Montsoreau castle, built in the riverbed; the Saumur castle, that seems to have sprung from a fairy tale or the Brézé castle with its endless moat and tunnels. If you have children with you, don’t miss the Puy du Fou, voted best theme park in the world.

Get an endorphin boost with water sports 

The Pays de la Loire is a land of History but also of nature. It’s the perfect place to practice numerous water sports, especially as a family. Set out for a snorkelling outing in l’île d’Yeu, canoe around the marshes of Vendée, try your hand at sailing or even at the speedy sand yacht. Feeling more meditative than active? Bob around the Poitevin Marsh in a small boat and take in all the beauty of France’s “Green Venice”.

Spend an unusual afternoon at the Machines of the Isle of Nantes 

If Nantes used to be renowned mainly for its historical heritage, nowadays the city attracts visitors for another reason: the famous Machines of the Isle of Nantes. Located on the island in the very middle of the city, this exhibition and animation space is a real oddity that can’t be labelled. Life-size half-sculpture, half-machine creations, whose star is the Big Elephant, will take you on one of the most atypical and playful rides of the country.
