Between St-Molf and Quimiac, this stage goes via a series of little canals serving extensive salt marshes, sometimes giving you the impression that you’re riding on water! Not to be missed: the Pointe de Mesquer Headland and two detours, one to the Petite Cité de Caractère of Piriac-sur-Mer, the other to the port of La Turballe. Then you arrive at the splendid fortified medieval town of Guérande.
