Les Bateaux Nantais
+33 2 40 14 51 14
A cruise on the Erdre is the perfect way to discover the river that François I considered to be France's most beautiful waterway. While listening to the cruise commentary or enjoying a candlelit dinner on board, you'll discover the castles and manors that line its banks from the mouth of the Nantes canal as far as Brest. For two and a half hours you can glide past beautiful residences like La Gascherie, La Poterie and l'Eraudière and watch out for woodcocks, swans, herons, geese, egrets and warblers that inhabit the riverbanks. Special trips are organised for Halloween, Christmas and other occasions. An orchestra plays on Friday and Saturday evenings and a musical variety show is held on Thursday evenings. A souvenir shop is situated at the boarding area on the quayside.
