The town of Batz-sur-Mer too forms part of the Guérande Peninisula which separates the salt marshes from the Atlantic Ocean. This quaint and picturesque town is proudly dominated by its church bell tower adjacent to which runs the only road which leads to Le Croisic. The historical centre of the town,‘ Le Bourg de Batz’, is a prime example of traditional Breton architecture, as are its surrounding villages of : Kervalet, Trégaté, Kermoisan and Roffiat well worth a visit during your stay in the area. The strategic proximity of Batz-sur-Mer to the pocket of Saint-Nazaire during WW II has left its mark. Amongst them the imposing blockhaus, which today is a museum open to visitors. Not far from here lies the customs officers’ path from which walkers can admire the menhir ‘de Pierre-Longue’ as well as the beauty of the beaches of fine golden sand including: Valentin, la Govelle and Saint-Michel. Be it under the clouds of sea spray in times of a tumultuous sea or with your gaze turned towards the horizon in more clement weather conditions you may just spy the island of Noirmoutier in the distance.
