Once a vital port city in the 18th century, Nantes is now the sixth largest city in France with a population of over 500,000 people and a leader in technology and international industries. It was recently ranked one of the best cities in France for quality of life. Situated at the mouth of the Loire River just 30 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, Nantes is only two hours by train from Paris and allows quick journeys to the capital and easy access to other destinations in Europe.
