Saint-Brevin-les-Pins, Brittany, France
Pierres Couchées in St Brevin-les-Pins on the southern Brittany coast is perfect for those who like the sand between their toes. Life here is centred on the sea, with a tranquil beach just a short and tree-shaded stroll away.
This welcoming park is in a lovely, relaxing location, surrounded by woods of oak trees where you can even see red squirrels.
There are tennis courts, fitness room and a multi-sports pitch for active families, and the beach is home to a wide range of sea and wind-sports. The nearby town of Pornic is a beautiful fishing village with a medieval castle that has protective towers either side of the port. St Naziare is an important seaport and was a major submarine base during World War II; the impressive pens can still be seen. Guérande is a walled town famous for its salt flats, said to produce the world’s finest salt. Indeed Roman soldiers were paid a regular wage in salt, which is where the word ’salary’ comes from. La Baule is perhaps France’s most famous beach and is often referred to as la plus belle plage d’Europe for its incredible standards. Machines sieve the sand and remove rubbish during the night, leaving the white beach glistening for the following day.
