Pornichet is a city in the west of France, located in the heart of the department Loire-Atlantique and region Pays de la Loire. Ideally located, Pornichet became a city in 1900. Its inhabitants (called the Pornichetins) became very attached to the charm and character of their town. Pornichet was once a small village but sea bathing became popular and changed the village in the 1880s. Initially reserved for an elite for the benefits of the ocean, the arrival of the railroad enabled to spread this practice to a larger number of people and also to transform the city into a real holiday resort. Today Pornichet has become a famous destination for a holiday rich in discoveries, cultural activities such as contemplating the sumptuous villas that have made the bay famous. The 3 beaches, Sainte-Marguerite, Bonne Source and la plage des Libraires have their own atmosphere: family oriented, peaceful or animated.
