Pornichet without a car

On holiday, moving about differently

What about leaving the car in the garage?

Pornichet is giving you the opportunity to do so!
Human-scaled town, Pornichet is a destination where you may travel on
foot, by bike or scooter, by shuttle, by bus…

A little overview.

By foot

What a delight to stroll along the small streets!

Breathing in the fragrance of the pine trees, admiring a villa, watching the
ocean, exchanging with the local residents… Walking from one place to the
next, it is taking full advantage of what the resort has to offer and of life.
The town is not vast, distances will not stop you.


You came by train ?

Scarcely off the train, you are in the centre of town. Nearby, hotels,
restaurants and local shops are welcoming you. A few more steps and the
beach is stretching out before your eyes. We highly recommend a stroll on
the newly refurbished seafront, especially designed for pedestrians

By bike

Whether you like riding a mountain bike or a bicycle, or maybe an electric
bike, Pornichet is providing you with multiple bike lanes.
In the centre of town, towards the beaches, to go to the market or for
getaways in the surroundings, biking will soon become your best ally.
Going whichever way the wind blows, with a sense of plenitude and
without any parking concern, you will eat up the distance and fully enjoy
your holiday.
In a hop, you will reach Saint-Nazaire and La Baule using the bike lanes or
the passable tracks through woods and countryside. Check out the le bocage pornichetin.


Shame ! You don’t have a bike !

No problem. You may rent one from the local bike shops, which include
our partners Mondovélo or Veloc'Ouest.
You might also hire an electric bike from the docking stations available at
the train station and next to the hippodrome roundabout. Easy!
