Testimonial

Adrien CRUCHON, Co-founder of Shodo Nantes

In Nantes for less than a year "Having the chance to live in the countryside (in the second ring of Nantes), while being 15 minutes by bike from downtown Nantes. The people of Nantes are very attached to human relations and mutual aid, which then take precedence over the professional/competitive relationship."
