The Pays de la Loire region
Nantes (Naoned in Breton) is the capital of the Pays de La Loire region, as well as the Loire Atlantique department. It is also the most important city of the historic province of Brittany, and culturally still remains strongly identified with it.
Located on the Loire River, 31 miles from the Atlantic coast, the city is the sixth largest in France.
It is notable that the city of Nantes is at the exact centre of Earth's land hemisphere
Located South Brittany, the climate is mostly mild and very pleasant. The average temperature in winter is around 7C°; and 25C° in summer.
After having been occupied by the Gauls and the Romans, Nantes was Christianised in the 3rd century AD. The city was successively invaded by the Saxons (around 285), the Franks (around 500), the Britons (in the 6th and 7th centuries) and the Normans, who laid waste to it in 843: "The city of Nantes remained for many years deserted, devastated and overgrown with briars and thorns." The Chronicle of Nantes continues until the year 946, telling that Alain Barbe-Torte, grandson of Alan the Great, the last king of Brittany who was expelled by the Norse, drove them out and founded the Duchy of Brittany.
Historically, the country around Nantes (French: Le Pays Nantais) was always seen as being part of Brittany. In 1207, the Dukes of Brittany made Nantes their home, building the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany on the banks of the Loire. Most of the dukes and duchesses were buried in either the cathedral or the nearby abbeys.
When the Duchy of Brittany was annexed by the kingdom of France in 1532, Nantes kept the Parliament of Brittany for a few years before it was moved to Rennes. In 1598, King Henry IV of France signed the Edict of Nantes here, which granted Protestants rights to their religion.
During the 18th century, prior to abolition of slavery, Nantes was a slave trade capital, like Liverpool in the UK. This kind of trade led Nantes to become the largest port in France and a wealthy city. (www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/ism/about/ & www.lesanneauxdelamemoire.com)
In the 19th century, Nantes became an industrial city. The first public transport anywhere may have been the omnibus service initiated in Nantes in 1826. It was soon imitated in Paris, London and New York.
In 1940, the city was occupied by German troops. The city was twice severely bombed by British forces, on 16 and 23 August 1943, before being liberated by the Americans in 1944.
Until the 1970s, Nantes' harbour was located on the Île de Nantes, when it was moved to the very mouth of the Loire River, at Saint-Nazaire. In the subsequent 20 years, many service sector organisations moved into the area, but economic difficulties forced most of these to close. In 2001, a major redevelopment scheme was launched, the goal of which is to revitalise the island as the new city centre.
The Île de Nantes has now become a trendy district where you can find "Les Machines de l'ïle" (www.lesmachines-nantes.fr ), "Le Hangar à Bananes" (www.hangarabananes.com) and admire the famous Rings by Buren.
I just love this city! Believe me, Nantes truly deserves its reputation as a vibrant city full of charms.
In 2004, the magazine Time described Nantes as “the most liveable city in all of Europe”.
It is a city of art and history that has many secrets to reveal to its visitors. In our apartment you will find very detailed tourist information, including very interesting collection books about Nantes and its surroundings. Your only concern will be what to start with!

"Classy, calm but central loft in Nantes"
We stayed for 2 weeks in Le Loft and enjoyed both the ideal central location and the peaceful atmosphere. Everything was supplied and Henriette could not have been more helpful, even picking us up at the airport on arrival. We could walk everywhere in Nantes from the loft and visited the food market every day! Many restaurants and cafes were on the doorstep and we really enjoyed seeing the city off season, though missed the elephant on the Ile de Machines which was closed. But we will return in the summer! I would recommend Le Loft for location, quiet and comfort especially,
thank you both for taking time to write a review, the pleasure was mine to welcome you at the loft !

"The right place for a short stay in Nantes"
Near the town center, a nice little flat with all conveniences.
Personal welcome of the landlady, the sky through the windows, painting and pictures on the wall, you feel like at home and even better.
One little weakness: the lack of shower, and a low roofed bath
Merci beaucoup et au plaisir de vous recevoir à nouveau lors d'une prochaine visite à Nantes. And Happy New Year !

"Gorgeous apartment, great location"
Le Loft de l'Opera was a beautiful apartment within walking distance to all the best parts of centre-ville in Nantes. Henriette was very easy to get in touch with, and the apartment was furnished with everything you could possibly need during your stay. I wouldn't stay anywhere else on my next trip to Nantes.
Thank you Laura, I'll be looking forward to welcoming you at the Loft de l'Opéra again any time!
