Spend a day in La Roche-Bernard

  • Take a stroll around the port and the old quarters of the town
    The sense of history is omnipresent in this ancient town.  Your walk can start at the old port where there is the largest gathering of old rigs in the region.  A little further on the way, if you climb up to ‘le site du rocher’ the most intrepid amongst you will be rewarded by a magnificent view over the river La Vilaine and its bridges. As you continue your walk you will arrive in the old quarters of the town.  Here you will find a collection of houses dating back for the greater part to the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries. Its narrow streets, unusual historical and architectural details, the craftsmen and women at work…you’re bound to fall under the bucolic charm of this small town.
  • Take a cruise along La Vilaine
    Set sail from the port on a cruise along La Vilaine to discover the relaxing landscapes which stretch out before you…so relaxing in fact that we refer to this pastime as ‘nautical yoga’ !  The river-cruise boats, ‘Les Vedettes Jaunes’, will take you from La Roche-Bernard as far as Arzal.  ‘Le Morwenna’, a tall ship, on the other hand will take you on a more intimate cruise towards Folleux.
