Welcome to our hostel

This is a great hostel for cycling groups wanting to get on their bikes and discover Nantes. Because this is one of the most cycle-friendly cities in France. With hundreds of parking lots full of bikes which you can rent by the hour or by the day, there is a huge network of cycle routes which takes you to all the main attractions here.

The hostel, which is located just outside the city centre, takes up part of a huge building which was once a tobacco factory. It is also close by to the cathedral – a must-see while you are here.

For groups which are interested in nature, there are some spectacular gardens to see – the most notable of which are the Japanese gardens on the l'Ile de Versailles.

And if you are a fan of science fiction, then check out the Jules Verne Museum (complete with great views of the port) or try to visit the hostel when the International Science Fiction convention comes to town.

Of course being in France, there are no end of restaurants and bars for you to try. Make sure you sample the Muscadet which is produced here as well as the Gallettes. Simply delicious!

So whatever your reason for a group trip to Nantes, why not consider booking up La Manu? Make an enquiry now.
