The Pays de la Loire region
Immediately West, smooth beaches of La Cote Sauvage, interspersed with rugged cliffs and little bays offer a great variety of landscapes. This extends to the Pointe du Croisic. A beautiful coastal round trip of the Cote Sauvage by car will take about two hours.
The port of Le Croisic still has an important fleet of fishing vessels, in particular shrimp boats, and has retained all its authenticity. From nearby Batz-sur-Mer, you can have a great view from the church tower of Le Croisic, the adjacent salt marshes and across the bay.
A drive by the oyster farms and through the salt marshes takes you to the magnificent medieval town of Guerande. Its fortified city walls used to protect this former economic and administrative capital of the region. The city has grown rich from farming, vine-growing and salt, but today much of its income derives from tourism. On the seaward side of the walls there is the Briere National Park. In addition to its own attractions, it is close to several resorts such as La Turballe and Piriac-sur-Mer. The latter has an excellent water-sports centre.
La Turballe is France's major Atlantic sardine port, with its modern fleet of fishing boats. Early risers should visit the port to see the catch being landed in La Turballe and Le Croisic. Guided tours are possible and you can visit the fish auction and market. The fish auction has its own small exhibition about the history of fishing. South of the town the fine sandy beach of Plage de la Grande-Falaise extends to over 3 miles between the salt marshes and the ocean. The sea is very popular with windsurfers, and the beach is a favourite with naturists, who congregate around the Pointe de Pen-Bron.
La Baule's 8 km beach stretch has made it one of the most popular and chic beach destinations in France, among locals as well as international tourists. The waters are warmed by the Gulf Stream and people flock here every summer for sun-bathing and getting that perfect tan. This beach is not for those who need some peace and quiet, as its bustling with life. There are hotels, shops and restaurants lined all along the beach.
The Briere is a huge national park covering 49,000 acres, the largest marshland area in France after the Camargue. The Grande Briere occupies 16,550 acres of it, covering 21 communes. In this area of reeds, peat-bogs, wild geese and ducks, all the traditional occupations by which the local people once earned their livelihoods (peat extraction, animal husbandry, reed-cutting and fishing) have almost disappeared. The region is nevertheless unique, thanks to the habitat and the landscapes which change with the seasons.
Walks along the coastal paths offer great inspiration just minutes from your door. Saint-Marc-sur-Mer is famous for the setting of Jacques Tati's film "Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot" (Monsieur Hulot's Holiday). Not much has changed since Jacques Tati filmed there and long may it remain so. Nevertheless there are plenty of activities and festivals locally, such as the mediaeval display at the Château de Ranrouët (Herbignac), les Fêtes des Battages (Threshing Festival) at Saint-Molf, le festival des Nuits Salines (Sea-salt Festival) at Batz sur Mer, Celtic Festival (Guérande), la fête des Chalands Fleuris (Flower-decked boats) at St André des Eaux, and last but not least "Les Escales" in Saint Nazaire (1st and 2 August 2014).
Just to the East is the friendly coastal town of Saint-Nazaire. The massive World War II German submarine base has been converted into a variety of museums and acivity centres. At the tourist office there, you can register to visit the construction sites of the world's largest cruise ships, Airbus Industries and more.

"My wife and I and our four children found our expectations surpassed by the accomodation, location and beach"
The accomodation was extremely spacious and very well equipped. With the beach so close we were able to pop back and forth at leisure to the apartment for meals or ice creams and enjoyed dining on the balcony every evening. A wonderfully peaceful environment with what felt at times like a private beach. The close proximity of the supermarket (with reasonably priced items) and the well equipped kitchen meant that we spent HALF the money we had set aside for the six of us! Six days of continuous sunshine spent mostly on the beach or in the sea rounded off what was definitely a 10 out of 10 holiday for us all.
