Do you want to get away for a weekend, and come and taste some of the Bretagne’s wonders?
This circuit is made for those who want to get out of their routine and have fun. This is a wine and castle getaway tour to better understand Bretagne and come back with a few good bottles!
Day 1:Nantes region.
9 a.m.: discovery of the Château des Ducs de Bretagne, the most famous castle of our region… until one dark day of 1532, when Brittany sealed its union with France. Relive these highlights, and discover what made the strength of this city, between Brittany, Loire and the Atlantic!
Did you know? Cabernet Franc is also called Cabernet Breton, or simply “le Breton”! This is because this typical Loire wine was very often exported to Brittany, or to England through the port of Nantes which at the time was in… Brittany!
12 p.m.: lunch at the Art n’ Blum restaurant, typically French and even Breton! The menu combines the finesse of French gastronomy and the delicacy of Breton specialties, especially with salted butter caramel!
2.30 p.m.: visit of the town of Clisson, a vestige of Italian influence! Walk around the castle of this truly Tuscan town!

Day 2:salt marshes and cider tasting.

12 p.m.: lunch in a Breton creperie with Breton cider!
2 p.m.: Vannes, its majestic port, its imposing ramparts, its gourmet shops!
