    Be entertained in Rennes

    They say all roads lead to Rome, but in Brittany, all roads lead to Rennes. The heart of France's north-westernmost province, this grand and boisterous city is great at keeping people entertained. That's not just the students guzzling Breton ciders in the buzzing bars – that's everyone. Culture vultures won't want to blink as they move from the grand Place de la Republique to the blooming gardens of Thabor. The mouths of foodies will water amid the escargot, garlic and cheese stalls of the Place des Lices market. Sightseers have the treasure trove of the old quarter at their fingertips. Rennes holiday rentals await…

    Delve deep into Rennes

    Bag yourself a Rennes holiday rental in the historic heart of this provincial capital and get ready to get lost. Wandering the streets with wide eyes and a guidebook can be the best way to discover all the architectural gems that lurk above the pavements and in the squares. There are loads, from the half-timbered medieval terraced houses of the Place du Champ-Jacquet to the grand parliament buildings of the Bretons. The endless menu of creperies and cider holes and local taverns touting garlic snails won't let you go hungry as you walk, don't worry.

    Rennes takes parklands to new dizzying heights

    Forget your usual urban green spaces with crooked benches and packs of pigeons, Rennes has the grand and gorgeous Thabor. This 24-acre swathe of lawns and manicured flower beds was once the grounds of a medieval Benedictine abbey. A total redevelopment in the 1800s brought ferns and orchids and exotic blooms aplenty, not to mention picnic spots, bandstands, fountains and artificial caves. When the sun shines, it's one of the most pleasant places to be, offering a real escape from the heart of the city.

    Rennes is never a chore

    Sunny and dry days are less common up in northern Brittany than they are down on the French Riviera. Still, the summers in Rennes manage to crank up temperatures to the mid-20s and bring plenty of days without a drop of rain. You can book your Rennes holiday rentals for between June and August, if you want to make the most of those. That said, Rennes isn't just for the warmer months. Autumns, winters and springs are great, too. Students add vibrancy to the local bars from October to March. And there are fewer crowds in the museums and parks.

    Rennes and the Breton country

    Rennes's ancient heart is cut into little sections by the meanderings of the Ille and the Vilaine rivers. As they flow outwards and into the green belt that surrounds the city, they delve into landscapes of rolling hills and wooded plains, often occupied by farm fields and grazing packs of cows and sheep – typical of central Brittany. You don't actually have to leave town to get a taste of nature, though. The large Thabor Park can cover that, with its exotic flower beds and 2,000 species of roses.
