If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Nantes, the Auberge du Château is the perfect option. At the foot of Clisson’s medieval castles, next to the 15th century stone bridge, you can sit under the glass canopy (or tiny outdoor terrace) overlooking the Sèvre River, and savour a moment of heavenly calm, while enjoying imaginative, carefully prepared meals. Reservations are imperative – especially if you wish to sit next to the bay windows and enjoy the superb view. Warm atmosphere.
