Saint-Nazaire, the ideal holiday destination!
The gateway to the Loire, Saint-Nazaire has so many varied facets for its visitors to enjoy. After the warm welcome offered by its historical port, where ships of legend once docked, the town centre, the coastline fringed with beaches and the Brière Natural Regional Park take over. As you’ll already have realised: here in Saint-Nazaire, the voyage has only just begun!
Beyond the famous Bay of La Baule and the medieval city of Guérande, your Sandaya campsite is waiting to welcome you to its lush green setting. At the crossroads between Brittany and the Pays de la Loire, your stay will be resolutely aquatic! Between the beach and the swimming pools of the bathing area, your swimsuit will soon become your second skin. Whilst the kids get together in the free mini clubs, you’ll be able to enjoy all the campsite’s fun and sports activities. And, when evening falls, in your fully-equipped cottage or under the canvas of your tent, you’ll soon be sleeping like a baby at your Sandaya campsite.
