Yellow as...

... the gorse heath of Préfailles, the largest in Loire-Atlantique.
Yes, spring is undoubtedly the season to admire it in all its flowering splendor.
Just imagine... this vast, bright yellow expanse along the sentier des Douaniers. Come rain or shine, the gorse heath will brighten up your coastal walks... a magnificent sight that won't leave you indifferent.

To make the most of it, here are our suggested visits :
Hiking : Circuit de Pasquin
Heritage interpretation tour : Préfailles painters

... the sun, which gives us beautiful days and declines later, for the pleasure of long evenings.
Red as...

... the first strawberries from the Fraiseraie de Pornic.
The pleasure of getting up early, grabbing a little basket, going to their strawberry market, discovering different varieties... and thinking of a recipe to enjoy them :-)
It's the most eagerly awaited and sweetest moment to share with the whole family from May onwards.
See you on Wednesday and Saturday mornings !

... the first strawberry-vanilla ice creams enjoyed at the foot of the Château de Pornic, facing the beach at Tharon or in the heart of nature at Les Delices de l'Air Marin farm in Moutiers en Retz. Don't forget our local custom : take a selfie of your ice cream and share it with #destinationpornic... in our area, it's the star of all selfies !

... the flamboyant sunset over Les Salines de Millac in the heart of our marshes !

Green as in...

... the Golf de Pornic. Whether you're a beginner, an experienced or an occasional golfer, you'll love the century-old wooded areas and wide-open Scottish-style spaces that the Golf de Pornic has to offer. And if you'd like to discover the resort, don't hesitate to try out your swing on an introductory day, or follow the guide on one of our "Pornic par nos passionnés" tours.

... the enchanted islands of Chéméré, a magnificent Renaissance garden in the heart of the Princé forest. Created in the 16th century by Henri de Gondi, the garden consists of five islets separated by canals and linked by wooden walkways. The garden was once adorned with statues and small pavilions, but is now overgrown. The restored footbridges, however, allow you to stroll in the midst of nature. Spring is the ideal season to appreciate this place and let yourself be transported by its history. But that's not all : discover the region's jewels on foot, by bike or on horseback !

... Pornic Aventure, an opportunity to jump from tree to tree like Tarzan, to awaken your senses in the heart of a magnificent forest acrobatic course.

... the riverbanks of the Acheneau at Port-Saint-Père. A landscape to discover on a kayak trip with Escapade Nature !
