Explore Pluneret, located on the shores of a ria in the Morbihan Gulf. It is surrounded by two coastal rivers: the Auray River to the west and the Sal River to the east. They meet at Kerisper to flow into the Morbihan Gulf. These rivers live at the rhythm of the tides, revealing mudflats that are a source of nourishment for the many birds that come here for shelter.

On the banks of the river Sal, in the village of Sainte-Avoye, stands one of the region’s most beautiful chapels. Dated from the 16th century and classified as a Historic Monument, it impresses visitors with its architecture and dimensions. Inside, discover an exceptional piece: a fully sculpted polychrome Renaissance jube.

From the village of Sainte-Avoye, take the coastal path that goes around the Gulf of Morbihan. On this path leading to the port of Bono you will encounter a boat cemetery where old wooden ships lay with their colourful paintings deteriorating over time. In the city's cemetery, lies the Countess of Segur. The illustrious children's writer regularly stayed in one of the town's castles.
