A few kilometres from the Rives de Vilaine campsite in Férel in Morbihan, discover a preserved ecosystem in the heart of the Guérande salt marshes and the Brière nature park
The salt marshes of Guérande
Known for its salt, the fine taste of which makes it famous throughout the world, Guérande is also a very pretty town with many places to discover.
A medieval town, Guérande has many monuments worthy of interest. With family or friends, escape to the Guérande peninsula, a few kilometres from Férel, and explore the town centre of Guérande, its ramparts classified as historical monuments and its stiles. A little further on, in the Guérande basin, the salt workers perpetuate the ancestral gestures, harvesting by hand the famous Guérande salt, exported to the four corners of the planet for the greatest pleasure of gourmets.
Stopover at the Brière marshes
You are in a region of water. Marshes, canals, ocean, everything here is aquatic. Take advantage of your stay to stop off at the Brière Regional Nature Park. Lovers of nature and wildlife will not know where to turn: the second largest marshland in France after the Camargue, the Brière offers 40,000 hectares to discover.
Along the water on a barge, by bike or step by step, the escape flows from source in this labyrinth of canals, undulating reeds and flooded meadows. At your own pace, go through a green and preserved nature, punctuated by thatched cottages. Stop off at the village of Kerhinet, a hamlet that has been completely restored as a living memory of the traditional habitat of the Brière, which includes a group of eighteen thatched cottages. An interpretation trail guides you to the wash house and the bread oven, telling you about the habits and customs of the former inhabitants of the village.
