Difficulty level: Easy all year round - Wet in winter This hike allows you to discover the richness of the commune's natural areas.

Departure point: Sainte-Avoye village parking lot. To get the hike off to a good start, visitors will find two maps, hand-drawn by a painter based on an idea by Pluneret town council, showing the wealth of heritage on offer in the commune's maritime sector. After reading, head towards the village of Sainte-Avoye, then turn left at the crow's feet, away from the village.

Step by step

1- Turn right on the track, continue in the valley, then the track leads to the pretty hamlet of Kerhel. Cross the hamlet, turn right at the crossroads, then left a few metres further on, and take the track which runs into the valley.

2- At the entrance to the Espace Naturel Sensible (E.N.S.) des Landes du Téno, follow the signposted path through woodland and wet moorland to reach the other end of the site. The farmers who once farmed this site called it "lann viaz" (the mudflat moor).

3- At the chicane, turn left: the track becomes a coastal path, revealing the charms of the Sal estuary. This is a Ria, with its mudflats and salt meadows where the waters of the Golfe du Morbihan rush in, overlooked by hedged farmland. See the Moulin de Pont Sal, a tidal mill dating from the 2nd half of the 19th century. Continue for 2 km.

4- At the hamlet of En ty Nyhuy, turn left onto the dike. Here, the marsh is home to numerous shorebirds all year round. Continue for 1.8 km.

5- At the crossroads, turn right up the meadow. From here, you can see the Govillo cove, the boat cemetery and the old Bono bridge.

6- Continue along the wide track. After 500 m, take the sunken path to the right, which leads into the village of Sainte-Avoye, with the Chapelle in view. Classified as a historical monument, this Renaissance gem was built in the 16th century. The chapel impresses with its high bell-tower and substantial dimensions. Inside, it reveals an extremely fine décor and houses exceptional furnishings: one of the few rood screens still preserved in Brittany. This remarkable piece of polychrome woodwork is entirely carved with figures, fantastical animals and decorative motifs. Open from mid-June to mid-September. Walk around the chapel, then up the road to the parking lot.
