Brittany Region Details

Starting in Redon, you can discover with our Pénichettes the waterways of Brittany: Canal de Nantes à Brest and the Vilaine. You will pass cities full of history as Arzal, Blain, Dinan, Josselin, La Gacilly, Malestroit, Messac, Nantes, Nort-sur-Erdre, Pontivy, Redon, Rennes, Rohan, Sucé or Tinteniac.

Canal de Nantes à Brest, Vilaine, Blavet
Redon, at the crossroads of the Vilaine and the Canal de Nantes a Brest is your gateway to the legends of Merlin the wizard and the fairy Viviane. You’ll pass the Isle of Magpies, the perfect setting for a fable. Next Gacilly with its mossy lanes and eel-filled reedbeds so beautiful in the morning light, then on to Josselin where the castle’s mighty turrets are reflected in the canal. Pause too at Malestroit to admire its halftimbered houses. The Canal de Nantes à Brest is definitely amongts the very best of cruises.

Inland Brittany with its vast skies, its ancient granite villages, its blossom has always been a magnet for artists. A second cruise to Rennes cross the Breton Landscape with hardly any locks. Equally appealing, it will also allow you to discover something of the buzz of a regional capital rich in history and in monuments. Remember too that Brittany has a great culinary tradition.
