During their stay in Nantes, tourists should explore the Bouffay district, which dates from the Middle Ages and also visit the eighteenth-century buildings that are located in the centre of the city. The architectural heritage of Nantes also includes the Château des ducs de Bretagne (Chateau of the Dukes of Brittany), which houses a history museum with a particularly fine collection of antiques. A weekend in Nantes will also allow you to relax in one of the many parks in this city of greenery and flowers.
There is a wide variety of choice of accommodation for tourists who wish to book a weekend away or a holiday in Nantes. You can, of course, book a room in one of the many hotels in the centre or on the outskirts of the city. However, for a stay which is a little out of the ordinary, it is also possible to book a guesthouse or a gîte. Families also have the option of staying in a holiday village or a resort located a few miles from the centre of Nantes. Finally, it takes only two hours to get to Nantes from Paris, thanks to the fact that it is well connected by three motorways and by train.
