On the Atlantic Ocean, looking at Saint-Nazaire, Saint-Brevin is installed on the south shore of the estuary, a remnant of the ancient delta extending from the Vilaine to Machecoul. The inexorable advance of dunes buried traces of ancient settlements. According to legend, the ancient city of Montoise would have been swallowed up. But there are still many standing stones, evidence of human presence at a very early period.
The city escaped the massacres of the Revolution and whose German bombing victim was St. Nazaire. Threatened by the sand, it was after winning a lawsuit against the state that the town recovered in the 1860s, some 600 hectares of coastal properties sold on the condition that they are planted pines. Saint-Brevin would triumph over its desert dunes and attract a population of vacationers who build magnificent villas along the wooded paths. Its long beaches safe, available to Atlantic winds make it the ideal place to practice snow sports and encourage tourism loving family at once authentic and invigorating holiday.
Today, the resort offers a huge range of cultural and sports activities available in an environment and an ideal setting.
