The Tourist Board of Auray-Quiberon published a marvellous packet of walks explained on double-sided cards – map on one side and text on the other – ‘Randonnées an Pays d’Auray’, but one can no longer buy it. Why not? Fortunately the gîte had a copy and during our week between Landevant and Pluvigner we followed three of the walks, starting with no.6, ‘Le Listoir’. We parked at La Grande Demi-Ville and followed a circuit of 6 kms.
The walk starts in the forest and moves into an area of pine trees, grass, and heather, and shortly the fingers of water appear – the Ruisseau du Pont du Palais. And at the Pointe de Listoir this stream joins the Ruisseau du Demi-Ville, creating wide and quiet views.
The Ruisseau du Demi-Ville was an equally quiet stretch of water at the head of which was an old mill.
And then the walk returns to the carpark through the forests.
This was a lovely walk with which to start a week in a part of Brittany which was new for us.
