4 days in La Baule (west of France)

Need a break and want to go by the seaside ? Take the fast train to La Baule, only 3h from Paris and breath the Atlantic, enjoy the sea food, indulge your senses in the fabulous spa next to the hotel. Take a room with a view at Hermitage (Barriere group) a five stars luxury hotel with excellent Pim’s made by Olivier the barman !

  

I always book a table at the Eden beach, their restaurant by the sea side, such a difference from Paris ! km of beach without any tourist (if you go there out of holidays time of course) and a perfect risotto with seafood.

       

Free bikes wait for you at the hotel , drive few minutes you’re in the city center, in the animated Avenue Genéral de Gaulle where you find a great lounge restaurant called “Rouge”. Perfect service (even after 2pm, don’t forget you’re in a small town and it’s rare to be served at that time !).

Seafood again , extra ones, for nothing (18 euros !) and the pastry chef worked before with Pierre Gagnaire .

    

We were so happy to find that place that we came the day after and ate exactly the same !

For shopping, if you like vintage high jewellery I recommend you Sasso (84 av general de Gaulle).

4 days break is a good timing but 3 work also very well !

I did not mention the village next to La Baule :  Le Crosic -still preserved from real estate speculation- discover it through walks or better with the bike and drive by the ocean, so refreshing !
