Vacation in the "Pays de la Loire" part 1

We‘ve spent 12 days in the French region "Pays de la Loire" (Land of the Loire, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pays_de_la_Loire) in Le Pouliguen and made trips (by foot or by bike) to Batz-sur-mer, Le Croisic, Guérande and Nantes which is the capital of this region. Here I want to share (and document for myself) photos of the coastal villages of Le Pouliguen, Batz-sur-Mer and Le Croisic. Until the 1950s this part of France belonged to Brittany, and you can see that in the local architecture.
