La baule

La Baule is located in one of the most beautiful bays in the world. It is renowned for its beach, and dazzles with its magnificent villas – listed as heritage sites – and gems of seaside architecture. The city is also known for its prestigious hotels, making it perhaps the most chic of resort towns on the Atlantic coast !

Whatever the time of the day, the resort cultivates a certain elegance, from the morning gallops of the horses, to the terraces of beach restaurants, from thalassotherapy sessions to evenings at the casino.
