La Chantrerie And Around

Traduction(s) de cet article : français Español

A Place For Training

The La Chantrerie site is an important trainig centre in Nantes. There are three very important schools : Polytech Nantes, the École des Mines (mines school) and École du Bois (wood school).

The site is also dedicated to sports with special installations for practising golf, rowing and sailing.

The Chantrerie Park Is A Meeting With Horticulture !

The site name comes from the Chantrerie Park, a public location since 1972, that was designed by Dominique Noisette. This is a large park, 18 ha wide (ca. 44 acre) and 900 metre long (ca. 900 yds), on the river Erdre banks. The Chantrerie castle which sits in the middle of the park is hosting a veterinary school, a chapel and an orangery.

You’ll find there a 1,000 year old chesnut tree, kitchen gardens and several of the local animals, like challans hens and nantes cows.
