Nantes is a city full of diverse cultural heritage, built around the mouth of the River Loire in its beautiful green valleys. Nantes is also a vibrant university town, and its breathtaking architecture reveals an artistic character. To relax you can sail from the harbour to nearby locations on the coast, or explore the exotic parks under the summer sun. The native mixture of traditional Brittany cuisine combined with local regional wines, such as the famous Muscadet, create an inimitable culinary experience to delight your senses. Stroll through the streets, talk to the friendly locals, and you’ll discover a beautiful city with some special secrets you can make your own. Image from ©G.Chataigner

Sunday is undoubtedly my favourite day. A day to relax, with family...
As for lots of people who live in Nantes, there are two possible day trips on a Sunday morning: we can go to Talensac, with its huge market! I love the boho-bourgeois feel of the picturesque halls of the market. Inside, the best foodie stalls are all there: chocolates by Vincent Guerlais Beillevaire cheeses, seafood which reminds us that Nantes is only an hour from the ocean, along with fruit and vegetables picked in and around Nantes (lamb's lettuce, radishes, leeks, strawberries, apples ...).
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!
During medieval times, Bouffay was the heart of Nantes, and over the years the city has spread beyond its original walls, and the original city is now a pleasant pedestrian area with a mixture of modern bars and restaurants, medieval timber-frame buildings and the ruins of renaissance chimneys, and the street names still tell the history of the different parts of town. Place du Bouffay is where fairs, markets, jousting contests and even executions were held, and today is a lovely centre for tourists and students to enjoy a drink or meal and chat with friends.
