Why plan your event in a green destination?

Nature

in the city

From the banks of the Erdre to the Petite Amazonie, from the Jardin des Plantes botanical gardens to the Jardin Extraordinaire, in Nantes, nature is never far away. Second greenest city in France, the city with 101 parks and gardens is recognised for its projects and investments to protect the environment and biodiversity. One of the most significant is the Green Star project, which aims to connect the major parks and green spaces of Nantes to provide a 42 km "network" of green trails along the Loire and the other local rivers.

The wine country

Featuring lush greenery along the Sèvre and Maine rivers and steep hillsides, from Nantes to Clisson, the wine country offers a wide variety of scenery and dozens of great wine cellars, wineries and restaurants. Welcome to the land of Muscadet, a wine with a unique grape variety whose reputation has been elevated to its rightful place by talented chefs and winemakers.

Discover the

heritage

You can explore the many castles and estates in the countryside around Nantes, along a river or nestled in lush green surroundings, including the Château du Coing, the Château de Goulaine, the Château de la Frémoire, or the vestiges of the Château de Clisson, a few metres from the Italian-inspired estate of Garenne Lemot.
