Paris, the national capital, is situated 240 miles (386 kilometers) northeast of Saint-Nazaire.
Saint-Nazaire isn't the only place in Loire-Atlantique worth seeing; visitors should also head off and experience the magic of the nearby landscapes, cities and towns. Head to the Daniel Jouvance Thalassotherapie Centre and Hippodrome de Pornichet-La Baule in Pornichet, which is 6 miles (10 kilometers) away from Saint-Nazaire. Another choice is to go to Saint-Michel-Chef-Chef. It is 7 miles (11 kilometers) from Saint-Nazaire and is home to the Chapel of St. Anne de Tharon and Jade Coast Art Gallery.
When it's time to spread your wings, visit the nearest regional area. Nantes is situated 30 miles (48 kilometers) away and features visitor attractions such as Parc des Expositions de Nantes La Beaujoire, University of Nantes and Place du Bouffray. Ile de Versailles, Passage Pommeraye and Machines of the Isle of Nantes are also well-worth investigating while you are here.
Stimulate your mind by spending a few hours at Loire-Atlantique 's wonderful history museums and art museums. Tourists seeking out special places of quiet contemplation, will love visiting the region's many churches.
Why not take the opportunity to relax and enjoy during gentle pastimes such as cycling and picnicking. Both activities are well-loved options for both tourists and locals alike.
At the end of your stay in Saint-Nazaire, you'll be sure to bid this region a sad "Au revoir / À bientôt" But be comforted by the fact that you'll be leaving with memories and photos that you'll be able to enjoy for years to come.
