TripAdvisor Reviews Hotel de France Nantes
Travel Blogs from Nantes
... not real. It was at this point that we realised that although we have seen many, many children of all ages in this park, we have not noticed tears nor tantrums - amazing when you consider the number of children here. We did feel sorry for the real actors who were dressed up as the King and Queen of France wearing their full regalia - it would have been so hot!!!
By this time we were feeling quite tired so we decided to return to the hotel, ...
... Magic also featured as a priest disappeared from under his cloak in a puff of smoke. As the village went up in smoke we could feel the great heat coming from huge flames - once again amazing! The technology used is unbelievably hi-tech and amazing!!!
By this time it was 7:00pm and we were booked in for dinner at L'Orangerie where we ate our prepaid meal. It was a huge room with a cold buffet in the centre, with 100+ tables of 10 surrounding ...
... to go onto a campsite at riverside as €14.00 for night and 3 hours free WiFi seemed a bargain.
There was no other show in town so we were all parked up in the lovely site by 20:00. There were not too many on site and it was refreshing not to be surrounded by too many more tourists.
Dinner cooked up and a stroll around the site in fading light.
A Father Matthew night followed and after the drive, perhaps no bad idea either,
... English father but was born in Nantes.
We then walked to find a restaurant and how could we turn down a place called "hippopotamus" where we were seated outside and next to the tram track - there is no barriers or lines or anything to show you where they start and the trams literally get very close by whilst eating.
Back to the hotel and settle for the night - a short day riding tomorrow!
Mileage today 197 (Total mileage to date 987)
... river, the Loire, through a valley dotted with chateaus and vineyards.
We decided not to start our trip at St Nazaire as we have read reports from other bloggers that getting out of that town across the multi-lane bridge without a cycle lane is an experience best avoided.
So tomorrow the next phase of 'le grande tour de Maggie et Keith' will commence from Nantes, 50k upstream from the Atlantic Coast. We can't wait to start!
