Nature, along the water’s edge
The Rance finishes its journey at the bottom of Dinard and Saint-Malo, in a sumptuous ria. Salt and freshwater mix here, creating a universe of wooded creeks and large bays. An emerald green and deep blue estuary, like in Minihic-sur-Rance, where the dry dock of La Landriais recalls the maritime vocation of the Rance : boats were built here to go to Newfoundland. Snuggled under the foliage, the chapel of La Souhaitier, in Plouër-sur-Rance, also evokes this harsh past, dedicated to the sea and to its good and bad fortunes. It rises up in the hollow of the bay, a peaceful and intimate stop that also marks the starting point for a hike. The summer crowd stays away from these miniature havens overlooked by maritime pines.
