(Brittany Travel Guide)

Once you reach the Loire-Altantique department, you know you have arrived in Southern Brittany in France (south Bretagne - Breizh). This is a land much flatter than the rest of Brittany, a land of rivers & canals with a Nature Regional Park in Grande Briere, a coastline of beautiful beaches with the glamorous seaside resort of La Baule and his dominant city, Nantes, Brittany's former capital.
Small seaside resorts worth a visit include Le Croisic, Piriac-sur-mer, Saint Brévin and Pornic without forgetting the stunning medieval city of Guérande with its salt mashes.
