Partners and labels

Qualité tourisme

Since 2008, the Château des ducs de Bretagne has been committed to continually improving the quality of its services. In partnership with Loire Atlantique Développement, the castle renewed the Qualité tourisme label in 2016.

Label Tourisme & Handicap

In 2011, the Château des ducs de Bretagne was awarded the Tourisme & Handicap label for being accessible to all four disabilities (motor, sight, hearing, mental). The Château is listed as one of the nation’s model sites for its capacity to host disabled guests.

La Loire à vélo

The castle is part of the “La Loire à Vélo” – an 800-km cyclable road, and the only long-distance cycling route in France. Adapted for cycling in both directions, it stretches from Cuffy (by Nevers) to Saint-Brevin-les-Pins (across from Saint-Nazaire), and runs through Nantes, allowing one and all to discover the city’s architectural heritage.

Accueil Vélo (Cyclists welcome)

The castle is certified “Accueil Vélo” (Cyclists Welcome). It is a national mark guaranteeing a high quality of welcome and services for cyclists where you see the sign across France.

Monument historique

The Château was listed as an Historical Monument in 1862

Musée de France

Châteaux of the Loire Valley

The association “Châteaux de la Loire, Vallée des Rois” was created in 2008 in order to group together 50 monuments along the Loire, from Nantes (44) to Briare (45).
