What people are saying about Pays de la Loire

I took a tour from Paris. Both Mont Saint-Michel and the Loire Valley are accompanied by a guide, so you can go around efficiently without getting lost. The guide was in English. After visiting Mont-Saint-Michel on the first day, we parted ways with day trippers and boarded another bus to head for the Loire Valley. It was a four-star hotel and very clean, but there are no amenities such as shampoo, so bring your own. Breakfast was delicious no matter what we ate.

All the staff was very friendly though we were 5 minutes late. The correct meeting point is 9 rue des vieilles douves not place Royale. Our children (11 and 9 years old), my husband and I have found this first Segway experience very pleasant. Sure it will not be the last!

Very well, on a privatized visit because I was alone. Thanks to the guide for her kindness

Great trip to St. Michel and the Chateau Country Region. The Hotel stay was A+

Very interesting chateau set in a lovely town . The tapestry was amazing
