  • What a pleasure to walk slowly along the Quays of the old port, illuminated by pretty streetlights or old buildings rehabilitated, to discover the multitude of modern or old boats, moored at the pontoon... A variety of restaurants in the attractive cards that you make the eye and make you you sit in order to extend the time of a meal this pleasant moment.

  • I went on vacation during the summer months. This is a wonderful historic city. It is felt like a strength you once had flourishing trade in port. Running in the early morning is the best view is recommended for people less so

  • Dog friendly. So well maintained. Beautiful restaurants and cafes everywhere. A delight
  • One of the most beautiful, happy places I have ever been. Historic buildings & one of the oldest ports on the Atlantic. Grab some gelato & sit on the dock just enjoying the French scenery, even had a ferris wheel when I was there in the summer!
  • Lots to see and do
  • Excellent chill time for our anniversary 2015.
  • très beau
