Just the name makes you dream: Pays de la Loire. You probably think of the castles of the Loire, these majestic mansions of the altitudes of the past, gardens as beautiful as the palaces they adorn. Or perhaps in the Loire, this majestic river, surrounded by landscapes always different and yet so beautiful. Without forgetting the rich history of the department which saw the sovereigns succeed one another, the society change, and the institutions reform. You also think about the amount of knowledge that you can acquire, not in books but in life: from the castle life to that of the fishermen, from the aquatic fauna and flora to those of the meadows, trades and communities so different and yet so close throughout history, and the history of revolts and successive political changes, between Republicans and revolutionaries, in short the history of a country. Whatever your desires, you can satiate them in this beautiful space. Rendezvous in the Vendée, Loire-Atlantique or Maine-et-Loire, for historic, cultural, sports, natural or relaxed holidays. And of course, because the castle life is not for everyone and comfort is, Airotel campsites are at your disposal.
