About Nantes

Nantes is the largest city in western France, located on the Loire river, 50 km from the Atlantic Coast. The city is the sixth largest in France, with a metropolitan area of about 900,000 inhabitants. It was one of the major cities of the historic province of Brittany and the ancient Duchy of Brittany. In 2004, the magazine “Time” named Nantes as "the most liveable city in Europe". In 2010, Nantes was named a hub city for innovation in the Innovation Cities Index by innovation agency 2thinknow. In 2013, Nantes held the title of European Green Capital, awarded by the European Commission for its efforts to reduce air pollution and CO2 emissions, for its high-quality and well-managed public transport system, and for its biodiversity with 3,366 hectares of green spaces and several Natura 2000 zones which guarantee protection of nature in the area. Since then, the city of Jules Verne is regularly top ranked among the cities where to live.
