Pays de la Loire Vacations: Things to see while on vacation in Pays de la Loire France

While Nantes is currently the capital of Loire Valley, it was once the capital of Brittany because Pays de la Loire, France is a recently formed region. The location of the Western Loire consists of the previous divided provinces of Brittany, Perche, Maine, Touraine, Poitou and Anjou. The Loire River goes directly through the middle of Loire Valley, France from east to west, giving the region its name “lands of the Loire River.” Various Loire Valley accommodation for visitors can be found around the Loire River, including chateaus, villas, bed and breakfasts, cottages and farmhouses. Nantes is not the only city in Pays de la Loire that offers places for visitors to enjoy. Angers, the capital of the Maine et Loire department and Le Mans, the capital of the Sarthe department are also popular spots for sightseers. Angers features the Castle of Angers, one of the biggest medieval castles in both France and Europe. The outside walls of the castle are made up of shale and limestone. One of the main attractions inside the Castle of Angers is the Tapestry of the Apocalypse, the largest medieval tapestry in the world, measuring about 341 feet in length.
