Waytypes of the stage
From Vannes east to Theix, the route is provisional. The way is then signposted from Theix to Port-Navalo.
After Noyalo, follow the greenway signposted V5 as it runs alongside the D 780 road up to Saint-Armel. Then take the signposted small roads up to Saint-Colombier.
Between Saint-Colombier and Sarzeau, the route is along tracks. At Sarzeau, you come to another stretch of laid-out cycle track to reach the town centre. Then continue along small roads with only light traffic up to Kerpont Lake, from where the route is along a greenway up to Arzon and Port-Navalo.
At Saint-Colombier, you can opt to follow the Marais de Duer (a marsh), then head on to Kerhouët (via a track).
The Presqu’île de Rhuys cycling network offers many alternative routes and links:
- From Saint-Armel to Le Tour-de-Parc
- From Sarzeau to the Pointe de Saint-Jacques Headland
- From L‘Etang de Kerpont (a lake), a greenway leads on to the town of Saint-Gildas-de-Rhuys, on the south side of the Rhuys Peninsula.
