It is a place that the Nantais visit diligently, to stroll and to drink and eat, because the feeling of being somewhere else is instantaneous.
This ancient village of fishermen and sailors, with its small narrow streets and powerfully coloured houses, is simply irresistible. A corner of paradise, it is a cure for melancholy, shining with good humour and simplicity, which takes on the feel of a holiday resort as soon as there is a ray of sunshine. From the terraces of its bars and restaurants, the view of the city across the Loire is magical. To reach its quays, you need only take the Navibus (from the Maritime station), which makes the crossing from the ‘quai de la fosse' regularly. Onsite, there are several essential addresses, notably La Civelle and the Bistrot du Port.
Don't miss the organic market on Saturdays !
