Paris, the capital of France, is located about 230 miles (370 kilometers) to the northeast of Pontchateau.
When it comes to getting the best from your holidays, it's good to keep in mind that Pontchateau is merely the tip of the iceberg; Loire-Atlantique has been blessed with a treasure-trove of wonderful places to visit. Make tracks to Pornichet, and visit the Daniel Jouvance Thalassotherapie Centre and Hippodrome de Pornichet-La Baule. Pornichet is approximately 17 miles (27 kilometers) away from Pontchateau and is worth the trip. If you're keen on experiencing even more of this region, travel to La Baule-Escoublac to visit the Notre-Dame de La Baule and La Baule Beach. La Baule-Escoublac is 18 miles (29 kilometers) away.
Organise your transportation and head out to Nantes, a regional center, some 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Pontchateau. The place offers plenty of points of interest, including Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne, Machines of the Isle of Nantes and Cours Cambronne. Eglise Notre-Dame de Bon Port, Nantes-Erdre Golf Club and Jules Verne Museum are more points of interest in Nantes that should be on everyone's schedule.
Experience a little culture, learning and lore under the bright blue sky at the region's much-loved open-air markets and gardens. Experience the region's rich cultural fabric at Loire-Atlantique 's excellent art museums and history museums.
Why don't you take the opportunity to relax and enjoy during gentle pastimes such as cycling and picnicking. Both activities are popular with both visitors and locals alike.
When it's time to leave this special part of the world, bid a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell) to the people you've met and the spots you've been.
