Panoramic view from the church of Saint-Lyphard

This church is for real, dominated by a pink bell tower which lends the opportunity for a 360° panoramic view of La Brière.

Scramble to the top of the bell tower

This ‘voyage’ of discovery starts with a circular ascent up the spiral staircase as you make your way to the first stop off point. Here you can admire the church’s vaulted ceiling and the weather cock - which once stood proudly at the very summit of the bell tower. One last flight of steps…and WOW you can touch the heavens!! The reward for your efforts lies in the breathtaking view afforded to you across the entire area from the bridge at Saint-Nazaire to the collegiate church of Guérande.

A city at the heart of La Brière

This countryside village is set on the very edges of the marshlands of La Grande Brière and boasts an amazing 800 thatched cottages in this one community alone, located across several hamlets such as the most well-known that of Kerhinet, a ‘museum-village’.
