French city

Francophiles, listen up. Nantes might just be your new favourite French city.

Beautiful, beguiling and bursting with history, the city is known for its public art, lively student population and foodie culture.

Located on the banks of the River Loire, Nantes was separated from Brittany when regional boundaries were redrawn during World War 2 and is officially the capital of the Pays de la Loire region. However, many Nantes residents still consider the city to be Breton.

Home to a number of universities, Nantes has a lively student scene. It also has a plethora of spectacular historic buildings as well as the city’s must see attraction La Machine, a 12 metre high mechanical elephant which can take up to 49 passengers for a walk around the city.

Nantes also has a stunning medieval quarter and nineteenth century town to explore.
