Historically the capital of Brittany, Nantes offers Loire-Atlantique a majestic opening to the Ocean. Wide sandy beaches, small fishing harbors and green countryside are a good mix in this department with its wide variety of landscapes. One should not forget La Brière, nature park with canals, the peat bogs, the many thatched houses, or the Guérande salt marshes. Property in Loire-Atlantique is varied and the prices differ a lot depending on the emplacement. You can therefore choose, depending on your fancy (sea or countryside?) and your budget, between a renovated mill near Châteaubriant, an apartment with sea views in Pouliguen, a villa in Pornic or a beautiful country house, just a few minutes from the centre of Nantes.
