Chemin de Ronde, Cancale

(4.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Also called "allure," Chemin de Ronde is a raised protected walkway behind a castle battlement along the coast. Builders devised the round path as a walkway to allow defenders to patrol the tops of ramparts protected by the battlements or a parapet, so they could position themselves to shoot or drop objects on enemies. This romantic walking path offers sweeping panoramic views of the coast and many opportunities to meet locals and association members who care for this ancient trail. Plan your visit to Chemin de Ronde and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Cancale travel itinerary planner.

  • The path is well signposted, great views... Very well, to do to aerate before a nice dinner! The start can make the port towards the tip of the Grouin and if you don't want to walk too much, after the end of the road (Gate), turn left and return by subdivisions. Beautiful market.

  • What wonderful GR, sumptuous landscape! without difficulty. Departure from Cancale, arrived in Rothéneuf.

  • Moving away a little from the crowd of the port, the coastal path allows a pleasant walk on a steep trail (a little dangerous in some places, do not let young children only).
