Romantic Brittany

Romantic Brittany is a vast territory extending from Rennes to the Emerald Coast. You will discover charming towns, such as Combourg and Bécherel. It is the promise of lovely walks, surprising discoveries and a plunge into a medieval past.

CHÂTEAU DE COMBOURG

Château de Combourg, the emblem of the territory, is where the writer François-René de Châteaubriand grew up, who went on to start the “romanticism” literary movement. The inside of the castle can be visited on a guided tour.

 

THE SITE OF 11 LOCKS: EXCEPTIONAL !

Choose the right angle to enjoy this incredible sight: a lock every 200 m. The eleven locks, which are still manually operated, allow pleasure boats to cross a vertical drop of 27 m. Then, take a stroll or bike ride on the Ille-et-Rance towpath.

 

CHÂTEAU DE MONTMURAN

The medieval castle of Montmuran, in the Iffs commune, south of Romantic Brittany, opens to the public in the summer. Built between the 12th and 15th centuries, it still has two medieval drawbridges in working order.

 

LES ÉTANGS DU CANAL

Les Etangs du Canal in the communes of Hédé-Bazouges and Dingé is a Natura 2000 site. This means a sensitive natural area to be protected.
