We're looking for a nice stopover town/village in early August, on way back to Britain from South of France. Be looking for two nights, allowing the journey to be broken up, AND explore the place a little bit.
Current thinking is somewhere roughly between La Rochelle and Saint Nazaire. Two teenage daughters favour the coast, but we'd love to hear if anyone knows a little gem inland too. For example, would Nantes be any good?
Just looking for an attractive looking place, maybe a bit of history, hustle and bustle (i.e. harbour, markets) some good food and drink.
Many thanks for any help you can give.Edited: 30 April 2018, 10:40
