Accommodation in Nantes, a cultural capital.
Capital of the Pays-de-la-Loire, Nantes is the 6th largest city in France in terms of population. And for good reason, it is an economically dynamic city: it is the 2nd financial centre in France's regions. It is also the country's 2nd aeronautics centre and, above all, it is France's number 1 in the agri-food sector.
Tourism is also an important activity for Nantes since the Cité des Ducs is the 7th most touristy city in the country. Indeed, Nantes has a privileged architectural heritage, mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries, which has earned it the label "City of Art and History". It also owes its nickname of "City of the Dukes" to the fact that historically, the Dukes of Brittany used to make the city their place of residence. In addition to this impressive heritage, there is a rich and varied cultural offer. The city of Jules Verne (as it is also known, since it is the birthplace of the writer and where he drew his imagination) still inspires contemporary artists. The many theatres, museums, festivals, etc. make it a particularly lively city throughout the year.
Crossed by the Loire River, Nantes also stands out thanks to its quality of life, which has been praised on numerous occasions by the major press headlines. Sometimes voted "the most pleasant city in Europe" or "the best city in France to work in", Nantes has been awarded the European Green Capital Prize in 2013 and the European Capital of Innovation Prize in 2019: a fine list of awards that makes it an extremely attractive city for business travellers.
