Loire Valley I French holiday homes

Holiday lettings in the Loire Valley

The Loire Valley is for good reason called ‘the garden of France’ and has castles surrounded by lavish meadows, beautiful fields of corn, bright yellow mustard fields, deep dense forests, wonderful vineyards and above all, the longest river in France. Rent a holiday letting in France and find this river flowing through its historic centre towards the sea. During the 17th century, the Loire Valley was a region for the royal families who also built their castles there. These castles have an extravagant aristocracy thus making this region famous all over the world as a wonderful holiday location. This is the main tourist attraction in the Loire Valley. If you are seeking things to do in France, you can book any of our villas and experience staying close to the scenic beauty.

French holiday homes for history buffs

Visitors from all over the world flock to this place for unique self-catering holidays to get a glimpse of the wonderful valley and its surrounding region. Next to charming rivers such as the Indre, Vienne or Cherin you will find wonderful castles on the banks, such as the 15th century Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne in Nantes, which has been restored to be one of the major attractions of the city. The other noteworthy points of interests include the medieval towns and villages that are full of history such as the old town in Guerande or La Ferte Bernard also known as the ‘little Venice of the West’. Our French villas are available in all these regions and can be booked any time during the year.

Enjoy a diverse landscape around your French villas

Rent a gite in the Loire Valley and explore the diversity of nature, including well-manicured castle parks and gardens. The lush vineyards are testament to the fertile soil in the area, whilst the Loire River itself is flush with a rich and diverse range of flora and fauna. Book a holiday rental in France and hike along the river banks and admire graceful migratory birds returning home or take a simple stroll, plucking cabernet Franc and Chenin grapes straight from the vine. Immortalise these elegant landscapes in photograph, explore by boat or on foot, discover one of the most beautiful places in France and be sure to rent a strategically placed holiday rental so all of this is on your doorstep.

Cuisine in the Loire Valley

This holiday region in France is famous for growing grapevines due to its southern climate. We recommend you to sample sublime drinks anywhere in Nantes or Montsoreau, where you have a wide range of local white wines, pearly sparkling wines and sweet dessert wines to choose from. In addition to this, if you rent a villa nearby, you can also delight in that staple of French cuisine: cheese. Enjoy goats cheese on a warm salad, fresh fish rilletes or rich roasted game dishes followed by a sweet tarte tatin. Even regional salt is widely used and produced locally from saline swamps in Noirmoutier and the Guerande Peninsula! Look forward to all these delicious flavours and more when you book a French gite with NOVASOL.

Enjoy self-catering in Nantes

Nantes, the sixth largest city in France, is located on the banks of the Loire River and has a long and a diverse history. Founded in 70 BC and invaded by the Romans, Franks, Normans, Saxons and Britons, there is plenty of history to be seen and enjoyed when you rent a French cottage or apartment in Nantes. With cultural and historical activities everywhere, you cannot help but find the lively and innovative environment infectiously rejuvenating. Delight at the ancient architecture mixed in with modern creations like those found at Les Machines de l’île, where huge mechanical animals and fairground rides create a unique and noteworthy attraction.
