Must-see towns in the Loire-Atlantique close to the campsite
The department's major cities, such as Nantes and Saint-Nazaire, are real cultural treasures to be explored for a day or more if you feel like it.
In Nantes, you can discover a unique mechanical world through the Machines de l'île. These creations are a perfect blend of the world of Jules Vernes and the imagination of Leonardo da Vinci. Climb aboard the Great Elephant and the other creatures of this curious space that delights children and adults alike. There are many other places to visit in Nantes, starting with the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany to learn more about the history of the city and the role of Anne of Brittany, or the magnificent Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul. Nantes is also a city of art, perfectly blending nature and culture, with, for example, the Buren Rings facing the Loire River, which light up in various colours once night falls. Don't miss the Jardin des Plantes where you can stroll and relax before enjoying a drink on the terrace.
In Saint-Nazaire, there are plenty of cultural outings. Discover the fascinating history of the construction of the first giant liners and learn more about the city's economic and strategic role over the centuries with Escal'Atlantique. Come aboard the submarine Espadon for an immersion in the daily life of submariners, and dive behind the scenes of the promiscuous cohabitation to learn all about the missions accomplished by this superb submarine. After descending into the depths, why not take in the view from the famous Saint-Nazaire Bridge? This is always an impressive sight, even for those who are used to it.
The Loire Atlantique also has many small towns that are particularly rich in activities and walks to do from the campsite. Among them, mythical seaside resorts await you nearby, Saint-Brévin of course but also La Baule or Pornic for swimming or water sports.
