A rainy day by Saint Nazaire.

Today was and still is a rainy day.  Rather than stay home as usual we hit the road as I was home this weekend. We are starting to spread out a bit into outlying areas of our base in the Morbihan. Today we did a quick visit to Saint Nazaire, in dept 44 Pays de la Loire region.

First ,this is the town webpage and it can be translate to several languages, http://www.mairie-saintnazaire.fr/  and this is the tourist webpage of the city http://www.saint-nazaire-tourisme.com/

As we had little time and no plans to visit, we only touch bases by going into the center of town. The usual shopping we do near us ,we did it there this time. That is shopping for the wife, lots lots of it lol!!! then shopping for the kids lots of it, and little for me as I do the driving slave slave slave lol!!! We did purchase some clothings  at C&A and pillows ,and household items at GIFI, then  went over to see the big centre commercial of Savine, Grand Champs, both full of stores, restaurants amazing place so much in one place all next to each other, just before getting into city center Saint Nazaire in the neighboring town of Trignac. sure to be back ::)

While there we ate at a picturesque restaurant call Poivre & Rouge, not tried before and it was a pleasant surprise with great family welcome, funny folks, great service, and the food was great, had 400 grams steaks, Iberico spanish pork ham, cold cuts and melted camembert cheese, duck maigret steak of 200 grams, and all with grimbergen blonde/blanche beers, cafe gourmand, banana splits, and cheesecake ice cream, strawberries, and another of caramel and apple flavors, all for 139€ for five about 27.80€ per person within our budget! Like I said, we will be back soon. Good.http://www.poivre-rouge.com/

We walk the center of Saint Nazaire around the shopping Republique, many nice shops and restos there too, all the way to the Hôtel de Ville or city hall, and pass by the train bus station upon entering the center of town. The buses were working well, even on a rainy windy there, that is still going on by me. Ruban Bleu shopping center for our shopping today, http://www.rubanbleu-saintnazaire.com/mode.php

On our way back , we just did our groceries at Auchan, heck its only 110 kms from us so on a cool day it was no problems, http://trignac.centrecommercial-auchan.fr/plan/exterieur this is the shopping with stores external map,and this is the Auchan there, with a better map of the area, http://www.auchan.fr/magasins/trignac-st-nazaire/35/informations-pratiques/

The poivre et rouge and GIFI stores were here at the above link. The C&A store was in city center Saint Nazaire in the Ruban Bleu shopping center.

In all, its a place to combine it with the beaches of La Baule, Pornic, Pornichet etc and do the shopping back here on way back, nice planning, check, noted,written,and schedule. See you around here in summer. Well the real one because today we are already in summer time here lol!!! Those meteologists folks ::)

Some photos and enjoy your weekend . Cheers.

  1. We’ve been having our fair share of rain in Chicago this year also. Boy that meal would have taken about 4 hours to eat.
