Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Rennes and its surroundings
One of Rennes’ premier attractions and most beautiful sights is the Thabor – a natural space of greenery, wildlife, animals and very rare flowers. It is simply majestic during the summer months. For those wishing to sample some famously delicious local French produce, head to the Le marché des Lices, which is one of the city’s most famous markets. Or if you fancy a day out watching some high-class sport, then Rennes’ football team are one of the best in the region. You can catch their home games at the Stade de la Route de Lorient. For those wishing to understand a little more about the French region of Brittany, then the city’s Brittany museum is a great destination, as is the l’espace des Sciences for the keen scientists; they are both housed in Les Champs Libres, just 4.5km from the hotel.
For historians happy to venture out of the city, then the Mont Saint-Michel is a famous historical attraction, home to some fine French religious architecture and sights of great historical significance. Saint Malo, which is a small town in Brittany, is also very close by and well worth a visit for its sense of history and seaside restaurants. So discover the magic of Rennes, and book your room at the Campanile Rennes Est – Atalante today to make the most of your time in the beautiful region of northwest France.
