You’re short on time and you don’t want to take the risk of missing out on any of the ‘must-sees-must-dos’ in Bretagne Plein Sud... Here’s a day designed just for you!
Departure from the port at Pornichet. By car follow the gentle curve of the Bay of La Baule. We’re sure you’ll agree this bay deserves its place in the prestigious club of The most beautiful bays in the world.
Head for ‘La Côte sauvage’ – the wild rugged coast, a completely different landscape appears before you. Marvel at the rocks chiselled into fantastic shapes over time by the rise and fall of the tides. Sense the power of the immense ocean as it stretches out to the horizon and beyond!
On arrival at Batz-sur-Mer, move in land away from the coast to find yourselves at the heart of the famous salt marshes of Guérande: this unique and preserved area which bears witness to an ancestral know-how.
Time for a short break in the medieval town of Guérande. Nothing like a walk around the ramparts to stretch your legs.
Now take the direction of Saint-Lyphard. You’ll fall under the charm of the thatched cottages in the village of Kerhinet. This hamlet was restored by the Regional Natural Parc of La Brière in the 70s.
Less than 5 minutes away by car, you’ll reach the port of Bréca and the chance to discover the marshlands of La Brière. You can also venture as far as ‘la Pierre fendue’, near to Saint-Lyphard, to get a closer better look at these freshwater marshes. You won’t be disappointed!
Seize the opportunity to climb to the top of the bell tower a 360° panoramic view is just waiting for you to enjoy! On a clear day you can even see the bridge at Saint-Nazaire!
Should you now decide to head for Vannes don’t forget to stop-off at the quaint river-side town of La Roche-Bernard, one of our prettiest ‘petite cité de caractère de Bretagne’.
If you opt to go towards Nantes, then after Saint-Lyphard, go towards La Chapelle des Marais to take the D50. This road is superb and you’ll go right through the heart of the marshlands. A minor detour to l'île de Fédrun is an ABSOLUTE must!
Then all you have to do is get back on the N171 towards Nantes at Montoir de Bretagne.
