A lovely tranche of the west coast, the Loire - Atlantique
is a department of diverse landscapes from the sandy
beaches and rocky coves of the Atlantic Ocean to the lushgreen
countryside and châteaux of its interior. Sitting below
Brittany, it is just two hours from St. Malo, 40 minutes
to Nantes Atlantique airport, 1 hour from Rennes airport
and 2.5 hours by TGV from Paris."There is so much to see
and explore here - and it's got the ideal climate - mild winters
and warm summers," says Clive Percival, local agent.
"Being on the coast, it costs a little more to buy a home
here but your money still goes a long way."
This Victorian seaside town attracts surfers, sailors, and
tourists to its seafood restaurants, boutiques, casinos,
theatres, creperies and coffee bars overlooking its golden
beaches. A place to see and a place to be seen.
Wildlife reserve and area of outstanding natural beauty,
Brière national park is France's second largest area of
marshland after the Camargue. Enjoy meandering waterways, thatched roofs
and working museums. Tranquil and
unspoilt, it's a nature lovers' paradise.
