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

My favourite thing to do in Nantes is to go for a stroll! I stroll around aimlessly, I go to the shops that catch my eye, I sit in the sunshine outside a café, I walk in the streets in Nantes and let myself be inspired by my city. On a beautiful summer afternoon, whilst visiting a friend of mine who runs an absolutely irresistible haberdashery and tearoom, I thought to myself that every street in Nantes is synonymous with a desire!
Have you heard about the Rigolettes of Nantes? Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, these sweets were invented in 1902 and are still making people’s mouths water today!
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 ...).
