Les Ponts-de-Cé: call for proposals for bringing the Loire to life this summer

Published on 11 January 2019 - Updated 30 January 2019

The town of Les Ponts-de-Cé is launching a call for proposals to bring to life the stretch of the Loire that flows through its territory this summer. The aim of this call for proposals is to cultivate a partnership with the town that leads to a provision of water-based activities on the Loire, boat trips for example, on the side of Port des Noues or Port du Grand Large.

With a view to rounding off the town's tourist and cultural offering, and in light of residents' and tourists' expectations, Les Ponts-de-Cé is looking to develop a range of activities to be enjoyed by everyone on the Loire.  

For, whilst the canoeing-kayaking club already provides a wide array of sports activities, there are currently no non-sports-based options on the river, at a time when the town's tourism policy is turning increasingly towards the Loire, not least through the Rive d'Arts exhibition space, an open-air café with music (guinguette) and trails laid out for walks and other outings.  

The nearby campsite, swimming area, museum and media library, all located on Île du château, make it a strategic site for developing a varied, appealing tourism offering.  

This provision will have to cater to all sorts of people (families, children, the elderly and tourists passing through). Proposed pricing will also have to be affordable. The activities will run during the summer period, from May through to September. 

Visits may be organised on-site. Please contact the Tourism Director for more information: claire.mpondosadey@ville-lespontsdece.fr  

Closing date for submissions: 31 January 2019
