If you select an apartment holiday in Western Loire, you'll be spoilt for choice for things to see and do whilst there. Spend a day in Saumur to visit the Mushroom Museum, Le Cadre Noir Horsemanship Academy, the Chateau and the Tank Museum. Or, if you're within striking distance of the Poitou Charentes coast, La Baule is renowned for its sweeping beach, stylish shops and restaurants and thalassotherapy treatments. Another highlight is Puy du Fou theme park with its chariot racing and huge show. After a busy day sightseeing, treat yourself to some of the region's great seafood, Challans duck or saltmarsh lamb with some Anjou or Saumur wines.
