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

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!
In the heart of the vibrant and picturesque city of Nantes lies a curious darkened café, Café Cult’, where you can enjoy performances of live acoustic music in the company of the arty local community and student crowd. You’ll be charmed as soon as you walk in by the local artefacts, the friendliness of the staff, and the atmosphere of seclusion and romance emanating from the table candles. The food at Café Cult’ is delicious and varied – lunch in particular is a bargain. Or you can sip good French wine while admiring one of the regular art exhibitions.
Ah, the Projects Park! Do you know of many towns where you can be taken for a ride beside the Loire river on the back of a 12 metres-high and 21 metres-long elephant, or ride on a huge sea creatures roundabout?
