Nearest airport is Nantes – an hour’s drive. St. Malo ferry port is about two and a half hours’ drive (Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth) 10% Brittany Ferries voucher for any BF crossing; Cherbourg, Caen about 4 hours and about 7 from Calais. Le Croisic (2km away) is the terminus for the high speed train (TGV) from Paris and Lille Europe. It is possible to stay in Batz without a car as all food is available and there are so many lovely walks and cycle rides.




Batz-sur-Mer is on a peninsula with the sea on one side and the salt marshes on the other. Le Croisic, a fishing port, is at the end of the peninsula and is attractive and walkable/cyclable. Le Pouliguen is on the river that separates it from La Baule. La Baule is sophisticated and has its own charm lying among pine trees. Guérande is a medieval walled city, a little inland, and has to be seen. The Brière is a huge freshwater marshland, a conservation area and beautiful.

The salt marshes separate Batz from Guérande. They are a haven of bird life and the colours, ever changing, are a magnet for water colourists. The salt is harvested using methods unchanged for over a thousand years. Salt is sold in all the surrounding villages and at the side of the roads. A museum in Batz gives the history and fascinating facts about the marshes and the area. There are guided tours in the salt pans.




There are several beaches in the area: Plage St Michel is a four-minute walk away and is where we have our beach hut. It is an attractive smallish beach with lots of rock pools.

Plage Valentin is easily walkable (10 minutes) and is larger with surf. Wind surfing and sailing schools are there. The beach at La Baule is the longest in Europe: vast amounts of money are spent on keeping it in best condition and the huge sweep of the bay is spectacular. About 4 miles (either cycle or drive).

Local shops sell all that is required. Large supermarkets: LeClerc, Intermarché, Auchan etc all in the area. Restaurants abound, many specialising in sea food.
