accommodation in Rennes. Rennes is a city in the Ille-et-Vilaine
department of Brittany in northwestern France. The ancient centre
of the town is built on a hill, with the north side being more
elevated than the south side, and it lies at the confluence of
two rivers: the Ille and the Vilaine. In 1720 a fire lasting
for 6 days devestated the city. Today a small part of the medieval
city remains, together with the 18th century buildings that arose
from the ashes. Colourful traditional timber frame houses are
situated primarily along the roads of Saint-Sauveur, Saint-Georges,
de Saint-Malo, Saint-Guillaume, de la Psallette and around the
plazas of Champ-Jacquet, des Lices, Saint-Anne and Rallier-du-Baty.
Basilica Saint-Sauveur is also located in the historic centre.
