Holidays one hour from the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany

Fancy an urban getaway during your stay at the villa?  Nantes, the 6th largest city in France and capital of Pays de la Loire, has everything to keep you happy.  Located at the entrance of an estuary, the Nantes metropolitan has a taste of the ocean and lives to the rhythm of the tides that can be felt from its shores. Accessible by train, car or even by bike from Batz-sur-Mer, Nantes is a city to discover.

A city that will put some poetry in your stay

For its landscapes, that combine the heritage of a city of shipowners and industrialists, the contemporary architecture of a European metropolis and to this day, still wild nature of the banks of the Loire. For its history, read from the glorious pages of the Dukes of Brittany, the shipyards and the great industrial families and the much darker time period of the slave trade or the war bombings of 1943. For the poetry that we find in all corners of the streets, easily use the Voyage A Nantes to help coordinate your artistic stay by seeing a bus being decorated by an artist or a wooden elephant walking along the Loire.
