Between Normandy and Brittany, Mont-Saint Michel is one of the most visited sites in France (2.5 million visitors a year). At the entrance of this medieval city, you meet the Grande Rue with its museums, shops and houses of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. After you will  visit the Abbey (high point of the visit). After having admired the Abbey, you will be able to contemplate the Bay while going down the way of the ramparts, or by choosing the way of round, on your left, dotted with small gardens, which you also have access by the porch of Fanils. The Mount and its bay are classified as World Heritage by UNESCO since 1979. Resolutely turned towards the sea, Cancale lives to the rhythm of its fishing port which one discovers when arriving by the road of the ledge. At the end of the port of La Houle, oyster lovers will be delighted. Freshly harvested, the "hollow and flat" overflowing baskets on the stalls of producers. If the water gets into your mouth, try them plain or lemony on the terrace of one of the many restaurants of the port or on the oyster market facing the sea, in a friendly and lively atmosphere. With its national label "remarkable site of taste", Cancale attracts all gourmets as the quality of its environment inspires the best chefs in the region. Dominant majestically the estuary of the Rance, Dinan, medieval city of Côtes d'Armor, has preserved its many architectural treasures. Starting with its 14th century castle and its 3 km ramparts guarding the old town. A walk in the streets of old Dinan will plunge you into effect in another time. Half-timbered houses, terraced houses, Renaissance hotels, convents and Saint-Sauveur Basilica ... all testimonials of the rich past of this city. A medieval atmosphere that is also found in the street of Jerzual. This old access road that connects the upper town to the port, paved and steep slope, was full of weavers shops, tanners, sculptors ... Today still, its half-timbered houses are home to pretty workshops-craftsmen shops and artists (glassblowers, gilders on wood, engravers ...).
