Visiting Nantes


The town's landmarks are within easy reach of Nantes town centre: the château of the Dukes of Brittany, Graslin Theatre, La Cigale Brasserie, Passage Pommeraye shopping centre, the memorial of the abolition of slavery.


How about visiting Nantes in a rather original way?  We have selected a few ideas for you.  Why not try industrial tourism by visiting the area's well-known businesses or if you don't have much time, take a tour of Nantes on the tourist train.  Or you can go on a guided tour of the town with a "greeter", a resident of Nantes.  Or take a tour on the eco-friendly "city cruiser" whilst listening to your guide.


We are an eco-friendly hotel so naturally we can suggest a range of ideas for eco-tourists: La Brière natural regional park, the ornithological reserve at Grand Lieu lake, the salt marshes of Guérande, the wild coast from Le Croisic to Le Pouliguen.


We also have a few suggestions for your romantic weekend for two: the medieval town of Clisson, a cruise on the Erdre river or a trip to Grand Blottereau park.


And if you are looking for ideas for a family day out, head for the Machines de l'Ile or Planète Sauvage animal park. Sports enthusiasts can cycle along the Loire à Vélo cycle trail.
