The Loire Valley region

La Teillais is well situated being just an hour's drive from Rennes, Angers, Nantes and Laval, the main towns in the area. The cottage provides an excellent base for touring the Loire Valley with its magnificent chateaux and famous vineyards. Locally you can sample the vast selection of cheese, crepes, galettes, cider and wines and of course the Chateaubriant steak.

The coastal resort of La Baule with its 5km long sandy beach is known as the St Tropez of the North and just a little further along the coast are the salt marshes of Guerande which produces a crystalised salt.

Rennes is the capital of Brittany with its 17th Century houses in the old town. It has the largest market in the area with a good selection of shops and museums and is an impressive place to visit.

Angers has lovely old buildings, the old town has cobbled streets, the huge mediaeval castle with its impressive and unusual towers, houses the Apoclaypse Tapestry, the largest mediaeval tapestry in the world.


The cottage is 14kms from the historic town of Chateaubriant, with a beautiful chateau and of course the famous Chateaubriand steak.

In the region there are nearby forests and lakes with safe man made beaches, providing swimming, watersports, cycling and walking trails. For the serious sportsperson there is a good selection of golf courses, fishing lakes and horseriding stables, as well as Ten Pin Bowling and Go Karting. For the less serious, there are a number of open air swimming pools, swin golf and crazy golf. There are also a number of horse racing tracks, offering race meetings including trotting races, throughout the summer season.

There are of course, local weekly markets and many vide greniers (car boots)and fetes most weekends during the summer.
