    Cancale

    Cancale

    We travel through Normandy to Mont Saint-Michel, a magnificent architectural masterpiece built on an ancient mount that is often surrounded by the sea at high tide. Wander around the winding cobbled streets leading up to the abbey and walk around the ramparts, browse in the shops or relax in a bar or café. We continue to Cancale: its old town is on the hill and the port area lies below. From the pretty harbour at low tide you can see the ‘parcs’ where oysters are grown. We later reach Dinan where we stay for two nights. The fortified town of Dinan is one of the oldest medieval towns in Brittany and is characterised by cobbled streets, beautiful half-timbered houses and stunning Romanesque and Gothic architecture.
