  • Classical Music with a twist...

It's called La Folle Journée  and it's focused on Frédéric Chopin for the bicentenary of his birth. La Folle Journée is a popular event which aims to bring the audience closer to the music. The audience is offered an opportunity to meet composers or members of a national music school in their own time, while allowing for each individual's capacity to concentrate and listen. This approach is made easier by offering exceptionally low prices and catering for varying sensitivities and cultural practices, while respecting every party and working to promote music. The events last no more than 45 minutes, la Folle Journée offers a new perspective on concerts that attracts and instructs new audiences of all ages by doing away with the unchanging and rather predictable rituals of conventional concerts. In a relatively short time, visitors can wander from room to room, each of which offers acoustics that are perfectly suited to the different musical effects. The profusion of concerts is an opportunity for visitors to renew their musical experience, as and when they choose.  For more details click here.
  • Waterside wellbeing in Loire-Atlantique

    I love being beside water – and I know I’m not alone, as watery locations have been proven to evoke a sense of well-being. How tempting then is the Loire-Atlantique, a region whose main element is water.  The mighty Loire runs though it, the Atlantic borders it and a broad estuary links river and ocean, so there’s an enticing mix of waterside environments.
