"Maison Arlot Cheng was a bakery originally, but now they make fresh and simple food. It’s right in the heart of Nantes' creative district, on Île de Nantes. So you can have lunch and a coffee and then wander around the Les Machines de l'île, in the fantastic universe of Jules Verne. I recommend le pain des anciens and any latte you can get!"

"The story is beautiful because Jean-Baptiste comes from a family of makers who have manufactured brushes since 1947. They produce and sell home accessories that are environmentally respectful. The products are beautiful yet functional and they reflect the à la française art of living."
