Of pure happiness
Eclectic and eccentric, La Baule’s architectural heritage is an amazing reflection of the resort’s history.
Take pleasure in strolling down lanes and avenues dappled with the shade of the many pines that line them.
Relish the myriad villas that make up a stunning mosaic of styles, building materials and eras, and which often reflect the tastes and regional heritage of their owners: here a Provence-style farmhouse, there a Savoyard chalet. Breton, Norman and Basque influences serve as the living memory of the resort, while the villas’ names contribute to the story-telling. Along the oceanfront, an “American” aesthetic informs the modern buildings, adding to the singular juxtaposition of architectural styles.
La Baule’s rich natural heritage most certainly contributes to its success and renown. Sumptuous parks and the pleasure gardens of the town’s villas provide colourful charm throughout the heart of the resort, while the surrounding 650 hectares of pine forest and 47 hectares of carefully preserved estate forests invite you to experience the joy of a stroll in the countryside. Let yourself be tempted by a journey off the beaten track — whether for a weekend getaway, summer holidays or a day-trip; alone, with your children, your friends or your colleagues.
Welcome to La Baule ! You won’t be disappointed by its way of life !
