You can stroll through the maritime city par excellence: Saint-Malo, a corsair city set with ramparts. A starting point for prestigious races, a marina and a seaside resort, the city combines the advantages of the seaside with the richness of its exceptional heritage. The city stretches along a succession of peaks interspersed with beautiful beaches. The coastal path offers superb walks. Don't hesitate to spend a few days in Dinard, a superb seaside resort that combines the pleasures of seaside walks and water sports. Also stop at Cancale, a small fishing port and oyster farming centre located between Saint-Malo and Mont-Saint-Michel. We come here to appreciate the richness and diversity of its sites, the finesse of its oysters and the quality of its cuisine, with its famous chef Olivier Roellinger. Finally, stop in Rennes to discover its architecture and its spaces dedicated to walking. Stroll through the medieval streets of the city to discover the half-timbered houses, then around the Place des Lices where the private mansions of the Breton parliamentarians stand. On the Town Hall Square, the public building of baroque and classical style faces the City Theatre. This destination will only bring you happiness!
