What should I pack when moving to Nantes?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Nantes to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Nantes, you should pack a variety of clothing to accommodate for the city's temperate maritime climate. This includes warm clothing for the winter months, such as sweaters, scarves, hats, and a good quality coat. For the summer, pack lightweight clothing, such as t-shirts, shorts, and dresses. Rain gear is also essential, as Nantes is known for its rainy weather, so don't forget to pack a waterproof jacket, umbrella, and possibly rain boots. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, as the city is best explored on foot. If you plan on swimming at the nearby beaches, pack a swimsuit, beach towel, and sunscreen. For your new home, consider packing personal items that will make your space feel more comfortable and familiar, such as photos, favorite books, or small decor items. Don't forget to pack all necessary documents, including your passport, visa paperwork, and any other identification or work permits you may need. Pack a basic first aid kit, prescription medications, and any over-the-counter medicines you use regularly. If you're planning on cooking, you might want to pack some specialty ingredients that might be hard to find in France. Lastly, pack a French phrasebook or dictionary to help you navigate the language, and a guidebook to help you explore your new city," remarked another expat in Nantes, France.
