Hiking idea Day 1 Morning

The circuit of the 3 rivers 4h40

Our first day of hiking immerses us in the characteristic landscapes of the region. On the program of our getaway, a beautiful route from the Port of Évran to the Ille-et-Rance canal, without forgetting the stop by the Bétineuc leisure center.

Starting point: the port of Évran! We head towards the “Bois de Tison” to quickly reach the Château de Beaumanoir which overlooks the Rance valley. This building, classified as a historic monument (17th century), is simply magnificent. Souvenir photo required!

The rest of the hike takes us to the Aulnays farm, a place to know absolutely if you are fond of 100% organic cheese! We even see Annie and Jérôme at work, surrounded by their beautiful dairy cows. On the left of the building, take the time to contemplate the 2 beautiful frescoes…

We continue with the Manor of the Touch, a beautiful guest room topped with its XNUMXth century chapel.

Next stopover: the Mottay lock which spans the Canal d'Ille et Rance, to then recover the towpath for 2 km. Our encounter with these small buildings does not stop there: the Roche lock also awaits us a little further!

In the distance, we see a pretty undergrowth: it leads us straight to the Bétineuc leisure center. You are with your family ? Take notes ! It is the ideal spot to organize a great day of activities with the little ones. We then take the opportunity to take a little cool break (well deserved) at the edge of the pond.

The road is calling us! On our way, the remains of an old church catch our eye… One of the many legacies of the past that punctuate our journey. 700 meters further, direction Ville Ven. Following “Bleuquen”, we finally arrive at the Roseraie then at the Domaine du Triskell Rouge. It's the perfect place to stock up on saffron and Breton rice. Cooks, to your recipes!

We then cross the farm before returning to the road and taking the direction of Plessix on the right. There, a row of charming little houses awaits us. We finally reach the port by following the boulevard Docteur Ernest Gautier.

Day 1 Afternoon

a trip between land and sea 4h30

We continue our two days of hiking in Brittany through pretty rural settings punctuated with heritage sites to observe. 

The start is from the multipurpose hall where you head towards the town of Créhen, a charming colorful village. Architecture lovers? We advise you to take the time to observe the Romanesque portal of the church!

Continue to the right of the church to reach the street that descends towards the beautiful greenway. Here, we meet bicycle travelers who pedal on the hundreds of kilometers of tracks

The departure is from the multipurpose room where we take the direction of the village of Crehen, a charming colorful village. Architecture lovers? We advise you to take the time to observe the Romanesque portal of the church!

Continue to the right of the church to reach the street that descends towards the beautiful greenway. Here we meet the bicycle-travelers who pedal on the hundreds of kilometers of tracks.

A few minutes later, here we are across the fields… An authentic moment of calm and serenity. Before continuing, we make a small detour to observe the covered alley of the town of Génouhan. This path of more than 12 meters in length is made up of standing stones planted vertically.

That's it, we arrive at the foot of the Château du Guildo! This partially ruined medieval fortress overlooks the Arguenon estuary from the top of its rocky outcrop. Let's look up at the port of Le Guildo and enjoy the show!

A charming bridge and a few small paths later, heritage treasures are revealed to us...

Hiking idea Day 2

The grand tour of Cap Fréhel 6h30

 

We end these 2 days of hiking in Brittany by the grand tour of Cap Fréhel : an essential walk to do between the moors and the two points.

In total, it will take more than 6 hours to make this loop 22 km ! Something to delight lovers of walking in the great outdoors.

Our first stick plant is at the Anse du Croc car park from where we pick up the GR34, voted favorite path of the French, which winds through the dunes of the municipal campsite of Fréhel. Our gaze is then offered an alternation of breathtaking panoramas on the coast between dunes and pines.

Cap Fréhel Lighthouse

We are nearing the goal: the famous Cap Fréhel is in sight! Along the way, we cross the moor and its palettes of pink and golden colors as far as the eye can see at the beginning of summer.

That's it, here we are, this "Grand Site de France"® immediately imposes itself with its cliffs overhanging 70 meters above sea level.

This site is guarded by a lighthouse which can be visited in the summer, which is one of the 5 most powerful lighthouses in France. From the top of its 150 steps, it's a panoramic view of the coast with a guaranteed wow factor.

Continuing on the coastal path, we pass next to the Fauconnière ornithological reserve where several hundred pairs of seabirds nest. Binoculars recommended to admire the show.

Our next objective is to see: the impregnable Fort la Latte, also known as: Château de la Roche Goyon.

Take out your cameras, the view of Anse des Sévignés also deserves its little shot!

Loïc Lagarde

Arrival at the famous Fort the Latte, this pink sandstone fortress erected on a rocky outcrop is the most visited castle in Brittany. An essential visit to make during our 2 days of hiking in Brittany.

We then reach the charming Port Saint-Guéran through a pretty little undergrowth (2km) before reaching Château-Serein beach.

At low tide, the oyster beds and oyster beds of the bay's producers are visible to us.
