Products of Région Pays de la Loire

The Pays de la Loire Region has teamed up with Solutions&Co, the Pays de la Loire economic development agency and the Pays de la Loire Olympic and Sports Regional Committee (CROS) to develop new concepts for water-based products and services.

Solutions&Co has developed five new water-based concepts for families, accessible to beginners:

  • Water-based experiences to enjoy with your family called “Vogue&Vague”: Enjoy family water-based activities in the Pays de la Loire, that are easy to access (in partnership with 72 water sports facilities, tourist hotspots and local tourist development agencies)
  • An array of water-based activities: try out and get to grips with several water-based activities (in partnership with Canotika (Mayenne), Nautisme en Pays Blanc (Loire-Atlantique) and Mayenne Tourisme)
  • Family Club – Enhanced services: Treat yourself to a family day out with water-based activities and services for total beginners (in partnership with Nautisme en Pays Blanc (Loire-Atlantique) and Loire Atlantique Développement)
  • Environmentally-friendly boats: Ride aboard environmentally friendly boats (In partnership with Anjou navigation (Sarthe) and Aventure nautique (Sarthe) and Sarthe développement)

The CROS des Pays de la Loire has developed two concepts based on health and togetherness through water-based activities (SANA) with a view to:

– Promoting exercise and sports as a fundamental component of health and well-being for all throughout life. Thus, a regional “Health Sport” label has been set up, allowing water sports facilities to promote products adapted to this public health objective.

– Improve the support provided to people with disabilities using the same means and with able-bodied people with family or friends!
