a coastline softer than that of northern Brittany, this area has
some superb courses and the hotels are either close to the sea or
inland. On the border with Brittany, there is the sophisticated
resort of La Baule with its famous course La
Bretesche, always a delight to play, and the old town of Nantes
to visit. Staying in this area, you can drive south to Vendee with
its vast sandy beaches and play at St Jean
de Monts too.
area is famous for its rich supply of chateaux, with over three
hundred of them, often built alongside a river or buried deep within
the countryside. This is also an important wine-making area, although
at first glance there appears to be little evidence of the industry,
you are more likely to see fields of sunflowers or wheat than rows
of vineyards here.
