    Car Hire Rennes

    Rennes Car HireFirst settled thousands of years ago, Rennes is a city with a long and exciting history, shaped over the centuries by Roman, Breton and French influences which have resulted in a unique and diverse city, constantly providing great attractions and becoming highly popular with travellers. Located at the joining of the Ille and Villaine Rivers in the Brittany region of France, Rennes is surrounded by vast, scenic areas ready to be explored with a car hire. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car hire in Rennes is both easy and economical.

    Rennes is a city that offers travellers a great variety of attractions to choose from, whether it be historical sites, outdoor spaces, or cultural attractions such as museums and galleries, there is something for everyone. Although much of the city was badly damaged by fire during the 1700s, a visit to the old quarter will soon have you feeling like you have stepped back into the past. Drive your car hire into the city centre, and set off to explore the old quarter, with cobblestone streets, and classic half-timbered houses from the 15th and 16th centuries.

    Nearby you can visit excellent attractions such as the impressive Parliament of Brittany, the Jehan Duchesne Tower which was built in the 15th century, and Basilica Saint-Sauveur. Also right near the old quarter is Les Halles Martenot, a huge building from the 1800s which houses the 3rd largest markets in France. To relax and unwind in a superb outdoor area without having to go far, park your hire car just east of the centre near Thabor, a magnificent park within the city. Set over 10 hectares the park has beautifully manicured flower gardens, lakes, lush green fields and even an aviary with exotic birds. Thabor is particularly recommended in spring and autumn, when it is filled with vibrant colours, perfect for a pleasant walk, picnic, or just a short break from the city.

    A short drive north of Rennes, you can visit Mont Saint-Michel, without a doubt one of the most spectacular sights in France. Built on a granite island less than 1km from the mainland, Mont Saint-Michel is a fortified settlement including a large abbey, church and several museums. Dating back to the 10th century, the island is a truly spectacular sight, rising high above the water.
