Family-friendly places to stay in Pays de la Loire

La Baule is the best place for a seaside splurge – the luxurious Lucien Barrière chain ( has four hotels here, three with children’s clubs and one with a thalassotherapy (sea-water treatments) centre and baby-minding centre. But there are more budget-conscious self-catering apartments in La Baule. Alternatively, campingis popular here, or you might choose to explore the area by motorhome.

In Nantes, it may lack French character, but the Novotel Centre Cité des Congès has modern rooms sleeping up to four, with under-16s staying in a parent’s room and having breakfast for free, and offers welcome gifts, a children’s menu and an indoor play area.
