A history of nail biting excitement and dramatic fixtures!
Located on the Loire river and close to the crashing coastline of the Atlantic, Nantes is western France’s must-see destination. Praised for it's quality of life, the city was named European Green Capital in 2013 with more than 100 parks and gardens. 100 percent of its population live within 300 metres of a green area! The scene of legendary concerts (Pink Floyd, U2, Johnny Hallyday to name a few), La Beaujoire was also a venue for Rugby World Cup 2007, and host to the historic match between Wales and Fiji, where a 38-34 victory for the Pacific Islanders delighted the electrified crowd. We hope to see equal excitement at Rugby World Cup 2023!
