The banks of the Erdre are where people in Nantes spend their leisure time, be it running, having a picnic, or at a jazz or boat festival...head to Ile de Versailles to see what the Erdre has to offer!
La Reine Blanche is without doubt my very first cinematographic memory of Nantes. This Jean Loup Hubert film was shot in my beautiful city in 1991, where Hubert was actually born. It tells a story of young love between the beautiful Catherine Deneuve and her two suitors.
Located in Nantes’ beautiful old town, Le Bistrot à Gilles brings an original touch to the finest French cuisine, offered at affordable prices. Their varied selection includes many local recipes, such as the mackerel tart or the LU biscuits. The friendly staff makes you welcome the moment you step in, and the comfortable atmosphere means you can really relax. Highly recommended by the locals and critics, Le Bistrot à Gilles is one of Nantes’ culinary treasures.
