As the flight from Dinard to East midland was cancelled the other day (28th Nov), I had to take our visitors to Nantes airport to catch the next flight to East Midlands.
I had never been to Nantes, nor the airport, but I must say I was impressed by both. The centre of Nantes and the airport.
The airport was very easy to find – very well sign-posted and parking was not a problem.
It took us 2 hours from Dinan. If you have to go to Nantes airport, go 2 hours early and visit the centre. The chateau is beautiful (it was too cold and windy to walk round the ramparts!), and the historical centre is worth a visit too.
I left my camera in the car so I can’t even share photos of it!!
