Campervan Rental Nantes

The city is a true cultural and historical center. So much so that every year, from the 1st of July to the 31st of August, "Le Voyage à Nantes" takes place. This is where a green path appears that you can follow on foot or by bike. It links various heritage elements and some temporary art installations.

Just as the banks of the Loire and the Île de Versailles delight outdoor enthusiasts, the Île de Nantes and its famous giant animal-shaped machines are equally attractive. Nevertheless, the Parc du Puy du Fou, located less than an hour and a half from the center, remains the region's main attraction and is easily reached by an RV rental in Nantes.

Getting to Nantes

The metropolis is located on the Loire estuary. This position allows the seaport of Nantes-Saint-Nazaire to establish itself as one of the most important in the country. Ryanair, Lufthansa, Air France, and Aer Lingus are just some airlines operating from Nantes-Atlantiques airport. In addition, the A11 highway links Nantes to the east of the country, the A83 highway leads south, and the N165 national road leads to Brittany. The railway lines from Nantes station also offer an alternative way to reach the city.

Parking in Nantes

There are many places to park a motorhome rental in Nantes. The Decré-Bouffray car park is open from 6.30 am to 10.30 pm and provides direct access to the pedestrianized streets of the city center. It costs £2.40/€2.80 for an hour's parking. The Château car park offers a daily rate of £18/€21. Further out, the Relais Frachon car park in Saint Herblain costs only £9.50/€11 for a day. If these aren’t what you need, further south in the city, the Porte de Vertou car park offers another alternative.

Camping in Nantes

If you want to stay in Nantes in a campervan, it is best to plan ahead and book a pitch at a campsite.

Weather graph for average temperatures in Nantes
Average temperatures in Nantes per month

Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean can be held responsible for the climate in Nantes. Indeed, the port city offers relatively mild temperatures throughout the year. This temperate climate is due to the cyclonic depressions that come from the Atlantic. These are responsible for the frequent, but not very intense, rainfall in the city.

January and February are very much the coldest months of the year, with an average temperature of 6°C, although it is very rare that the thermometer falls below 0°C. Nantes' winters can therefore be deemed rather mild. Summer, however, is relatively pleasant. In fact, although August is the driest month of the year, it is in July that temperatures are the highest, however, the average temperature doesn’t go far beyond 20°C. The inhabitants of Nantes take advantage of these beautiful days to go to the beaches located only a few kilometers away.
