St Nazaire, Brittany

St Nazaire is a fascinating port, steeped in Maritime History with a long shipbuilding tradition. The beaches around the coast are lovely too, especially Les Jaunais to the West (which can be reached via the old customs officer’s path) or Saint-Marc-sur-Mer to the East, made famous by Jacques Tati’s 1951 film ‘Mr Hulot’s Holiday’.
