At the crossroads of the Brittany canals, St-Martin-sur-Oust is the gateway to the country of Merlin the Wizard and the Fairy Viviane. You pass by the Ile aux Pies (Magpies Island): a splendid setting, conducive to daydreaming. Next La Gacilly with its mossy paths and eel-filled marshes so beautiful in the morning mist. Further on stands the magnificent Josselin castle which reflects its majestic towers in the canal water. The Canal de Nantes à Brest is definitely one of the most beautiful canals.

In this area, the base of departure is
ST MARTIN S/ OUST.

Base of Saint Martin s/ Oust :


 

From St- Martin-sur-Oust to Nantes, navigation is particularly bucolic, you will follow the Erdre valley through the Gâvre forest, the secular trees which remind of the ancient Celtic forest of King Arthur.

Do never forget that the gastronomy is amazing and really generous concerning the specialities. Finally you will be seduced by the variety of romantic landscapes, slightly misty in the morning and sublimated by the Celtic mystery.

 

From Saint Martin s/ Oust you will be only able to go for a round trip.
