Time Europe: Nantes, the last best place in Europe ?
"Fact No. 1: France is famous for enjoying the best quality of life on the Continent. Fact No. 2: The French seem to think that their country's best place to live is not a tourist magnet like Paris, Nice or Toulouse, but lesser-known Nantes, a city of 550,000 close to the Atlantic coast". Of course I live there :-)
