Nort-sur-Erdre electric boat hire base

Opening of the 2021 season on Saturday, May 1st!

Right next to Port Saint-George, which marks the limit between the navigable and unnavigable sections of the River Erdre, our Nort-sur-Erdre boat hire base is a haven of peace and quiet.

The little river port of Nort-sur-Erdre, also known as the “pond”, was built around 1840. It attracts both history-lovers, due to its rich architectural heritage, and holiday-makers who enjoy the walks along the river. The port was a major commercial inland waterway hub for over a century. When commercial traffic stopped in the 1970s, it naturally became a favorite spot for leisure craft.

Sail from Pont-Hus castle to the château de la Jaille, via the marshes of Plaines de la Poupinière and the Plaines de Mazerolles, to Sucé-sur-Erdre, and enjoy an unforgettable experience with family, friends or work colleagues.
