A visit to Rennes, the capital city of Brittany in France, will take you on a trip down the portals of history. It will take you back in time where timber-framed homes lined its streets, plazas opened up to imposing buildings with Gothic architecture, and early mornings or late afternoons were best spent walking in green, open spaces. Rennes is a city that has maintained its old-world charm, but it’s not particularly sleepy. Rather, it’s made vibrant by a large population of youngsters from universities (across the city), and locals who pay a great respect to the region’s culture and history.

While in Rennes, you might want to visit the medieval neighborhood at Rue de la Psalette, or Rue de Chapitre, explore museums such as the Musee de Bretagne, stroll along the Thabor Gardens, or you can also go to faire la fete to meet and mingle with the rest of the community. At the end of a day, it’s nice to retire and have some good shut-eye at some of the best accommodations in and around Rennes. From the best hotels to the top vacation rentals, here are some of those you might want to consider:

The room I had (501) was super comfortable and quiet with windows that actually opened (how refreshing that is!). Everything spot on here. Lovely helpful staff, comfortable lounge and really great croissants. Very good value for money.” (Richard - UK)
