Family outings in Nantes
The Machines de l'Île
10 minutes on foot and 2 minutes by public transport from our hotel
An emblematic place in Nantes, the Machines de l'Île is a must-see during your stay!
Built on the site of the former shipyards of Nantes, the Machines de Nantes are inspired by the worlds imagined by Jules Verne and the mechanical universe of Lenoard Vinci.
The fusion of these two worlds results in impressive exhibition and animation spaces for both children and adults.
Immerse yourself in a fantastic world by visiting the Galerie des Machines and then climb on the back of a magnificent mechanical elephant.
Also discover the incredible mechanical creatures of the Carrousel des Mondes Marins.
Dukes of Brittany Castle

Built by François II of Brittany in the 13ᵉ century and completed in the 18ᵉ century, the Château des ducs de Bretagne is located in the heart of the city of Nantes.
Start your visit by strolling through the moat gardens which are freely accessible to visitors, and take a tour of the castle. Then head towards the castle courtyard and climb up to the ramparts! A beautiful view of the city centre of Nantes awaits you.
The Château des Ducs de Bretagne also houses the Nantes History Museum.
The Jardin des Plantes
20 minutes on foot and 8 minutes by public transport from our hotel
Take a deep breath of fresh air by walking through the 7 hectares of nature offered by the Jardin des Plantes !
This atypical garden was the result of a collaboration between the city of Nantes and the artist Claude Ponti. Numerous curiosities await you, such as the "Toggobanks", the "Giant Bench" and the "Banlançoire".
The garden has no less than 10,000 living species and 50,000 flowers: this diversity has earned it the title of Remarkable Garden and makes it one of the largest botanical gardens in France.
Children will appreciate the garden's play areas, the twenty or so species of ducks living on site, as well as the goat pen (accessible in the morning).
Good to know: An audio-guided tour is available free of charge on the Guidigo application (available on Android and iOS).
