France may have amazing metropolitan cities like Lyon, Marseille, and (of course) Paris, but in many ways, the majority of France is still very rural.
The village of Cantenay-Épinard, a small commune in the Pays de la Loire part of Western France, is an example of one of those beautifully quaint French villages. With a population of less than 2,000, Cantenay-Épinard is nestled between where the Cayenne river and the Sartre river combine to make the Maine river. It’s known for its gorgeous meadows and wetlands.
In every way, Cantenay-Épinard is the perfect picturesque tiny French village to rent a Bed and Breakfast in for a relaxing, gorgeous vacation.
