Discover the architecture of La Baule

To visit La Baule is to walk along its streets lined with houses and maritime pines. Indeed, the city owes its prestige to the architecture of its beautiful villas. Indeed, at the beginning of the 20th century, the great fortunes of Paris and Nantes built their second homes there and La Baule borrowed and revisited the architectural codes of the regions and other seaside resorts, with a single credo: openness to nature!

Walk in the forest of Escoublac

This pine forest of 47 hectares is very well preserved and shelters a rich and varied flora. The forest of Escoublac is mysterious and hides a secret: the village of Escoublac. Indeed, under the dune of the forest culminating at 52 meters are buried the old boroughs of Escoublac which were successively devastated by a tidal wave in 1450, then by the earthquake and the very violent storm of March 4, 1751.
