Romantic stay in Loire-Atlantique

 

The Loire-Atlantique region is full of unique places and original activities for a romantic getaway with your lover. We give you some suggestions.

Start your escapade with a trip on a barge in the Brière. Board the traditional flat-bottomed boat with a guide and let yourself be amazed by the history and landscapes of the marshes and canals. You may be lucky enough to see ducks and herons.

After the walk, head to a winery to learn about the wine industry. We can advise you to go to Vignobles Günther-Chéreau. Thanks to the expertise of a professional and above all a passionate person, you will learn everything about the harvests, the famous Muscadet and the AOC of Loire-Atlantique. At the end of your visit, a wine tasting will of course be offered.

For breathtaking landscapes and a moment out of time, gallop at sunset on one of the beaches of Loire-Atlantique.

Finally, during your weekend, treat yourself. Book a fishery in Saint-Nazaire for a snack or an aperitif. For a few hours, enjoy the surrounding area, the sound of the waves and the cry of the seagulls.
