Hotels in Nantes
Set in the Loire Valley, in one of France's most innovative and cosmopolitan cities, Nantes hotels are a great place to stay if you're looking for Breton castles and colourful bistros.
Nantes has a rich history stretching as far back as the Roman period. The city was, until the Second World War, the capital of Brittany. The best place to get to grips with this historical lineage is by visiting the Château des Ducs de Bretagne, home to the History of Nantes Museum. The castle itself was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries before becoming the Breton residence of the French monarchy. The museum is a fantastic place to take kids and has plenty of hands-on multimedia exhibitions.
The best place to learn about the natural world in Nantes is at the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle, while the Musée des Beaux-Arts has some of the finest paintings on display outside of Paris including work by Monet and Picasso. Another family friendly museum is the Musée Jules Verne, dedicated to the author of Around the World in 80 Days who was born in Nantes in 1828.
Theatre and wonder
One of the city's most unique attractions is Les Machines de l'Île de Nantes, featuring a 45-tonne mechanical elephant and the enormous 25m high Le Carrousel des Mondes Marines. Home to the Nantes Opera is the 18th-century Théâtre Graslin and even if you're not watching a show the building is still worth seeing. For art-house films there's the Cinéma Katorza while Le Lieu Unique is a renovated industrial space that used to be a biscuit factory and now houses everything from dance performances to philosophy classes.
Food and drink
Nantes, like most French cities, is exceptionally proud of its cuisine. And with the quality of restaurants on show it really has every reason to be. Cocotte Restaurant serves delicious duck and pigeon in an old butcher's shop, the vine-covered Le Grappillon serves mouthwatering dishes inspired by the cuisine of French Indian Ocean territories, while La Bouche à Oreille cooks up a hearty French bistro-style meal of sausages and in lentils. For night time fun, head to the bohemian Café Cult – featuring a hip crowd and regular live music.
The Loire Valley
Outside of Nantes the Loire Valley region is famous for both world-class vineyards and dramatic Châteaux. Travelling along the Loire will put you in the path of Château de Sully-sur-Loire, Château de Chambord and Château de Chaumont amongst others. If you have a car, the area is an exceptionally beautiful one to explore and well worth experiencing.
