Brace yourself, I’m about to make quite the sensational statement.

My favourite City in France is no longer Paris.

I know – shocking right 😉

Last year I spent a week in Nantes and I was blown away by a beautiful, friendly, stylish place that is jam packed full of art and culture.

I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves on this one…

This is somewhere you should absolutely add on your list of places to visit.  It is perfect for a long weekend away and you can follow the famous ‘green line’ around the city to make sure you see all the major sights. It’s also very popular with mosquitoes, so you’ll want to pack PLENTY  of repellent.
