Do you want to take some fresh air along the coast? Enjoy sea-food and sunset?
With its famous cycling route "La Vélodyssée" and their quiet country roads winding through vineyards and wild stretches of coastal sand interspersed with misty islands, the Atlantic coast is where France gets back to nature! Much more laid-back than the mediterranean (but with almost as much sunshine), this is the place to slow the pace right down.
The French Atlantic coast is long and varied also due to its sometimes impressive tides and currents. This region also has much to offer in terms of scenery from the rugged coasts of Brittany to charming coastal towns and the long sandy beaches of southern France. Both first-time visitors enjoying their first taste of the region and old hands visiting their favourite spots will find Atlantic France a good companion.
