What Transport is available from Nantes TGV to St Jean De Monts
Could anyone please tell me what options are available to me and my family for getting from Nantes Rail Station to St Jean De Monts.
Is there a bus, if so what is the number and is there a website I can find a timetable.
If I get a train from Nantes, what is the best station to go to and are taxis readily available at the stations?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Re: What Transport is available from Nantes TGV to St Jean De Monts
So, train from Nantes to Challans, then bus (autocar) to Saint Jean de Monts.
If you put Nantes and St. Jean de Monts Gare Routière into here http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en, you can get both train and bus timetables. The bus doesn't seem to be very frequent, though, there is a big gap between 11.32 and 17.44.
Regional bus services generally aren't numbered, you look for the destination.
If you don't see a taxi at the station, you could phone one of the companies on here, or contact them in advance to meet you at Challans: http://uk.saint-jean-de-monts.com/content.cfm?id=195
Travel Tips for Nantes
Unusual art gallery
I discovered recently l'Epicier d'Art. I had heard several times about this art gallery that sold paintings, photos and sketches for very cheap prices (under 50€!), but could not really figure out where the shop was located. I knew it was near Saint Nicolas' church, a few minutes from where I live but did not find the shop. Thing is l'Epicier d'Art is located underground. you just find a notice board in front of the building to tell you there is an art gallery downstairs. Added with few advertsing, you have to be told about this shop to actually find it. Well, lets go to the point. The art gallery is really unusual and truely interesting. Claude, the owner, exhibits art from 600 different people. His philosophy: art at a cheap price. Which does not mean cheap quality. Excellent art gallery for those who want to buy art but usually cannot because it is too expensive. The local itself is very interesting. it is actually a kind of apartment, fulled of paintings and tags. Even if I live in Nantes, every time I go there it is actually if I was escaping from the city to go to another world. Recommended for curious people and art lovers.
