NANTES - ST. NAZAIRE

3 terminals are available in our estuary to accommodate cruise liners: in Nantes city Centre (for liners up to 200 m), in Montoir-de-Bretagne (for liners up to 300 m) and in St. Nazaire (for liners up to 180 m).

Ideally located between land and sea, our destination is situated between two big cities: Nantes and St. Nazaire. They both reveal cultural and historical treasures as well as an antique charm tinged with modernism and creativity. Cruise passengers will enjoy historic Nantes: a city of Arts, Culture and Shopping and old St. Nazaire: WWII souvenirs, beaches and wild life. St. Nazaire area is a first step for industrial tourism (STX Shipyard or Airbus factory).

Nantes Saint-Nazaire region offers an exceptional range of attractions: the medieval city of Guérande, the Muscadet winegrowing area or the beautiful beach of La Baule. In the city of Nantes, you will fall under the charm of its Dukes of Brittany Castle or the site of the Ile of Nantes where you will discover the giant elephant and all Jules Verne's machines making of Nantes the craziest French city.

Nestled on the river Loire, Nantes is the natural gateway and the starting point for numerous excursions to the Loire Valley Unesco site and its fairytales castles as Chenonceau, Azay-le-Rideau or Villandry and its wonderful gardens.
