Situated to the west of the city in the town of Saint-Nazaire, Saint-Marc-sur-Mer became famous thanks to Jacques Tati's 1951 film Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot. Film fans will recognize many of the places used for scenes in the film, including the tennis court, which is now used for playing pétanque. Saint Marc is one of the most delightful spots on the coast: an ideal place for a stroll or simply taking things easy. One of its great advantages is its beach (one of Saint Nazaire's most beautiful stretches of sand) that never gets too crowded in summer. A little coastal path gives you a marvellous view over the sea. Directions: Take the N165 to Vannes, exit N171 Saint-Nazaire. Cross the town and then follow the coast until you reach Saint-Marc
Tired of running around the congested city roads and of the daily hustle bustle? Take a break and spend a day out at the Parc Paysager. This beautiful lush green stretch is lined with trees and shrubs along with flowering plants that offer a beautiful site to see when the flowers are in full bloom. Running on site is a small river along which there is a walking and jogging trail. The picnic area and other provisions in the park ensure that your outing is fun filled.
Located in the town of Noirmoutier-en-l'Île, the 12th-century castle of Château de Noirmoutier is a popular tourist attraction with its rich history and well preserved medieval architecture. Built as a defensive structure by feudal lords to protect themselves from Norman pillaging, the castle later came to be used as a royal residence, military prison, barracks and today is home to a local history and culture museum. A listed historic monument of France, it is a must visit for all history enthusiasts.
Known by many alternate names like the L’église paroissiale de Noirmoutier and Eglise Saint Philbert, the Paroisse Saint Philbert en Noirmoutier has references to the year 725. A former monastery, the church is now dedicated to the patron Saint Philbert. With a turbulent history behind it and several renovations, the church has only a little of its original structure left now. However, the crypt that holds the tomb of the saint dates back to the 11th Century and brings in several visitors annually. The church is still functional today and attending a prayer here is sure to render some spiritual joy. A must visit for all those who love architecture and religious history.
