5 Place du Garnal is located in Loire Atlantique, Brittany

The area is South Brittany. Although officially no longer part of Brittany administratively, all locals still think of themselves as living in Brittany. Batz-sur-Mer is half way along a peninsula called the Presqu'île de Guérande. The Atlantic is one side and the wonderful salt marshes on the other. These are still worked by the "paludiers" using methods unchanged for a thousand years. The light over the salt pans is wonderful, and attracts painters from near and far.

La Baule is sophisticated, with discos and expensive shops; it also has miles of wonderful beach. Le Pouliguen is at the mouth of the river which separates it from La Baule. Then comes Batz-sur-Mer - a village with a long tradition of salt workers and now an attractive resort. At the end of the peninsula is Le Croisic - a lovely little fishing town.
A little inland is Guérande, a medieval walled city. Not far away is a huge natural fresh water reserve called La Brière.

This is an area abounding in interest
