The Rigolettes nantaises

Out of all this region’s treasures, the Rigolettes Nantaises is a true gastronomic masterpiece from the old Duchy of Brittany! The rigolette, not to be confused with the famous berlingot from the same city, was first created in 1902 by Charles Bohu. “Rigolette” was in fact the name of his cat, named after the eponymous character in Verdi’s famous opera.

The rigolette nantaise is a delicious confectionary, made up a soft fruity centre encased by a sugar shell. It comes in five flavours: lemon, cherry, strawberry, mandarin and pineapple. 

You can discover these delicious treats in the Les Rigolettes Nantaises boutique at 18 rue de Verdun, only two minutes from the OKKO Nantes Château Hotel. If you’re in a rush, they are also available in the hotel’s own boutique here.

The Passage Pommeraye

If one destination in Nantes is truly unmissable, it's the Passage Pommeraye!

Authentic and rich in history, this landmark also offers first-class shopping in its boutiques. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Passage Pommeraye is one of the most beautiful covered walkways in Europe. It would be a travesty to miss out on such an architectural gem.

Inspired by the most luxurious Parisian passages, the Passage Pommeraye was inaugurated in 1843 under the reign of Louis-Philippe. It soon became an iconic city landmark in Nantes. Very popular among artists, the passage has very often been used as backdrop for films, including Lola, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Jacquot de Nantes among others.

A large glass roof overlooks a large flight of steps and three galleries: the "galerie de la Fosse", the "galerie Régnier" and the "galerie Santeuil". Just as in its early days, the passage houses the city’s most luxurious brands. These include Hermès, Durance, Le Tanneur, Nature et Découvertes and many more.
