Make a holiday apartment in Nantes your home away from home

France is famous for its art, its historical buildings and of course its wine. If you need a break and want to experience the best that France has to offer, look no further than a Nantes holiday apartment. Nantes is an exciting city destination that offers a different experience to Paris. Accommodation in the area comes in a wide variety of options, from cosy holiday apartments in Nantes city centre to country villas on the outskirts. There are properties for every kind of budget and they are all furnished to the highest standards so that your stay will be comfortable.

Things to do

Nantes is one of the largest cities in France and is situated on the Loire River, only about 30 miles from the coast. It is regularly voted as one of the most liveable cities in Europe and is famed for the design innovation that springs from here. It is steeped in history too, having developed from a settlement started here in about 70 BC by the Namnetes.

-A guided tour or river cruise is a great way to get to know the city. A knowledgeable tour guide will not only take you to see the main sights of Nantes, but will also be able to tell you more about the history of this fascinating city. If you want to go your own way, you can download an audio tour and explore Nantes and the Loire valley on foot or on bicycle. It’s a very bike-friendly city with a myriad of cycle tracks as well as self-service bicycles and bike hire businesses.

-Shopping in Nantes is excellent, with lots of shops, especially in the Graslin quarter, where you can buy the sweets made in the region. One of the best places to find fresh produce so you can cook delectable meals in your Nantes holiday apartment is Le Marché de Talensac, the city’s main market. This daily market in the Talensac neighbourhood has a huge selection of goodies, from baked fare to cheeses and of course fresh vegetables and fruits.

-The museums and historical buildings of Nantes won’t disappoint. From the medieval quarter of Nantesvieux to the 18th-century mansions of Île Feydeau, the city is an architectural treasure trove. Museums range from art and history museums to the more quirky Musée de la Machine à Coudre, dedicated to sewing machines. If you love science fiction or have an affinity for anything steampunk, don’t miss the Musée Jules Verne.

-The parks and gardens of the city are lovely oases of green, among them the Jardin des plantes des Nantes, the local botanical garden. Also be sure to spend some time in the tranquillity of the Jardin Japonais de l’Île de Versailles.

-The Les Machines de l’Île is an amusement park with a difference and is a must if you have treated the kids to a break in a holiday villa in Nantes. Inspired by the imagination of Jules Verne (who came from Nantes) and the inventions of Leonardo da Vinci, the site is a fantasy world of structures like a huge mechanical wood-and-steel elephant that you can ride.

-The Loire Valley is one of France’s most important wine-producing regions and the Nantes area specialises in muscadet, a white wine that goes especially well with oysters. Take some time to go on a wine tour where you can taste the different vintages and stock up on your favourite.

-Great beaches are within easy reach of Nantes holiday homes, with the city being only about 30 miles from the coast. Resort towns like La Baule and Pornic are easily accessed by train from Nantes.

The weather in Nantes

The Nantes area has a cool oceanic climate. Rain can fall throughout the year but is more prevalent in winter. Average summer temperatures reach a maximum of a pleasant 24 °C while winter temperatures hover around freezing, with occasional snow, especially in January.

Getting to Nantes

There is a variety of ways to get to your Nantes holiday home. The quickest is to fly into Nantes Atlantique Airport, which receives flights from many European destinations, including several UK airports, as well as from Tunisia. You can also travel to Paris by ferry or train and then make the train journey to Nantes, only about 2 hours from the French capital. Another option is to travel to the city by river ferry.

Martine and Danielle Tremblais were extremely helpful. Would not hestitate to visit again . You do need a car to visit the lovely villages but there are also some lovely walks to take along the river.

We wished we had given ourselves more time. Thank you Mike..
