The Western Loire stretches along the Atlantic Ocean, just below Brittany. It is a very scenic region, with some 30 miles of the Jade Coast, plenty of green countryside, and 250 miles of waterways. The huge beaches are perfect for windsurfers, and for people looking for a relaxing holiday.
The Loire Valley is famous for its wines, especially the light, dry, delicious red wine that you can enjoy in every restaurant and cellar of this area. If it's chateaux that you are looking for, you can visit some of the magnificent examples built by the Kings of France centuries ago.
