Nantes, the ideal holiday destination!
Welcome to Nantes, city in the Loire-Atlantique, full of energy and surprises; with its own unique dolce vita and rich heritage, it never fails to charm all who visit. Whether on land or on water, there are a thousand and one ways to explore. So let loose your holiday desires and head off to discover this fascinating town without more ado!
And to recharge the batteries between two trips out and about, you can count on your Sandaya campsite. Free children’s clubs, aquatic area or beach, you’ll find all you could want for an unforgettable stay with the family, your friends or just the two of you together.
Visit Nantes with the family
Visiting Nantes with your little tribe will be a real pleasure. Take your pick from its vast range of activities: begin with a visit to the Carrousel of Marine Worlds, a veritable 360° theatre set on the banks of the Loire. An incredible trip into the marine abysses to discover the steel sea creatures that await you. Both you and your little explorers are going to adore this unique experience!
And don’t miss seeing the city through the eyes of Jules Verne, the author who created Captain Nemo and Phileas Fogg. Your up-and-coming adventures will be in heaven! Finally, once back at the campsite again, make the most of the free children’s clubs and aquatic areas to provide the perfect end to a wonderful family day out.
Visit Nantes as a couple
Let Nantes be the perfect backdrop for your most romantic escapade à deux. Stroll hand-in-hand through the city streets, explore its hidden corners and immortalise each magical moment together for the photograph album. To make it even more special stop off for a mouth-watering break to discover its culinary specialities or call into one of the riverside “guinguettes” when it’s time for an aperitif and enjoy a drink in the distinctly festive ambiance offered by these traditional café-restaurants with music and dancing.
Love nothing better than a little sport together? How about an outing by kayak or canoe? And for love birds in search of something a touch more romantic, step aboard for a river cruise on the Loire and its tributaries for a moment out of time on the gently flowing water.
