  • A pretty place with lovely architecture, it has a spacious, open feel. Rue Massena, off to the right as you face the water, has some great places to eat. Moules in white wine and cream a speciality.  more »
  • Well located, place massena is right next to the beautiful cast green, it offers a bunch of restaurants and shops in the two streets that join her. On the other side of the place of access to the sea and the centre of the old town are very easy to access. The place to be!
