Welcome to the Enterprise Niort car rental page. Choose from a wide selection of cars ranging from smaller economy cars to larger SUVs and people carriers
Surrounded by peaceful and idyllic rural landscapes, Niort offers visitors a perfect introduction to western France. The historic town’s centre is lined with buildings dating from medieval times and the Renaissance period. More recently, Niort has emerged as an important regional hub for business and finance. Offering affordable rates that will let you make the most of your holiday, our branch is located east of the town centre.
A car rental lets you make the most of your visit to western France. From the comfort of one of our modern and safe vehicles, you can explore the town and surrounding area in style. You will be able to set your own itinerary and explore stunning rural landscapes off the beaten track. Our fleet features a selection of vehicles for every need and budget, from mini and compact cars to spacious estates and premium cars. For additional space, we also supply SUVs and people carriers for up to nine passengers.
A fixture in Niort’s town centre is its medieval castle, which dates from the twelfth century. The Romanesque-style castle was built by Henry II and Richard I when the area was under English control. The Pilori is a Renaissance-style building from the fourteenth century with stunning decorative stonework. Once the town hall, it is now an exhibition space for local artists. Other attractions include the Gothic-style Church of Notre-Dame, the tallest building in Deux-Sèvres.
Niort’s market is held every Thursday and Saturday at a stunning hall designed by Gustaf Eifel, the same architect that designed the world-famous Eifel Tower in Paris. The market boasts a selection of fish and seafood as well as meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables and flowers. After shopping at the market, the surrounding area has many quaint cafes for you to relax in.
Niort is a great base for exploring the scenic hills and valleys of western France and the picturesque districts of Deux-Sèvres. The town is on the doorstep of Marais Poitevin, an area in the south-west of Deux-Sèvre that was first reclaimed from the sea by monks and then by engineers from the Netherlands. From the comfort of your car you can admire the fruit-growing area of La Bocage in the rural north-west, while the plains of the south and north-west are dotted with vineyards and arable fields of grasses and grains. In the centre of Deux-Sèvres, Gatine shares the rural character of La Bocage but with cattle and sheep dominating the landscape instead of fruit.
Noirt is only a short drive from the region’s main airports. Poitiers Airport is about a 5-minute drive to the north-east via the A1. Angers Loire Airport is approximately two hours to the north via the A83 and A87. Enterprise operates at both airports. Our branches are located within the terminal buildings and cars are within walking distance of our counter, ensuring that you will start your holiday as quickly as possible after your flight lands.
When driving in Niort, extra care is needed when travelling on rural roads. Certain roads may be narrow and congested, especially when they are not wide enough for two vehicles to pass. Be aware of wildlife crossing roads, especially sheep and cattle. Free parking is available at car parks throughout the town centre, including the Rue de Bessac. Paid short- and long-term parking are provided at the main railway station, while So.Space operates paid car parks throughout Niort, including at the Hotel de Ville and La Brèche garden.
