Fly direct from London Heathrow (LHR) to Nantes Atlantique Airport (NTE) twice a week in summer. Just a short flight from London, under an hour and a half, a city break in Nantes awaits.
Visit like the seafarers before you. Their dockside tales inspired Jules Verne’s stories and the exotic plants that grow in the beautiful Jardin des Plantes. The fierce seafaring people of Brittany have not forgotten Nantes. It still has a strong Breton influence, yet holds a tamer title as one of the most liveable cities in Europe. You’ll love it instantly. Take kids to Les Machines de l'île for encounters with mechanised animals – straight out of Jules Verne’s imagination. Make sure you eat some lovely LU biscuits, too, to fuel a visit to the chateau. Later, have a glass of Muscadet. The local white wine is delicious with fish. Eat in the splendour of Art Nouveau brasserie La Cigale.
