MESQUER / BRETAGNE

In Loire Atlantique, in the heart of a popular tourist region

By staying at the Relais Marine, you are in Mesquer, in the Loire-Atlantique region of the Pays de la Loire, near the popular towns of Guérande and La Baule.

Ideally situated in the heart of the Mès marshes, the second largest salt marshes in France, which once earned it the nickname of "the little salt capital", and open to the Atlantic Ocean with its 12km of coastline and fine sandy beaches, Mesquer-Quimiac is a pleasant family resort. 

Here, you can breathe in the iodine scent of the oyster farms, hike along the salt marsh paths, swim on the Lanséria or Sorlock beaches, dive from the Pointe de Merquel or enjoy a gourmet lunch at the Kercabellec harbouri

At the doorstep of the hotel, the environment is wild and authentic and offers many discoveries and activities.

Our team will be happy to advise you on how to discover our beautiful region.

KERCABELLEC HARBOUR

KERCABELLEC HARBOUR

The heart of oyster farming...

Kercabellec, a beaching port, has known an important development thanks to the production of salt. The salt industry developed in Mesquer over the centuries to reach its peak in the 19th century.

Used mainly for preserving fish and meat, salt was shipped to the port of Kercabellec and exported to the whole Atlantic coast.

It was around 1880, in response to the drying up of the natural banks, that oyster farming really developed.

The bay of Kercabellec, which is suitable for both flat and table cultivation, has numerous refining basins.

Nowadays, 6 Mesquéra farms exist, mainly cultivating hollow oysters.

From the spat to the plate, 18 months to 3 years are necessary (initially at sea for the period of fattening then in oyster beds for maturing) to give them this so particular and famous taste of the ''oysters of Mesquer''.

POINTE DE MERQUEL

POINTE DE MERQUEL

A nice walk through the salt marshes...

Between the salt marshes and the ocean, between fresh and salt water, this route is ideal for observing the landscapes and the birds.

This circuit first winds along the channel between the salt ponds and plunges you into a world of water and silence where the birdlife lives and delights you.

Then, you leave the salt marshes to cross the undulating bocage which leads you to the ocean. Once you reach the customs house, you will see the sea, the beach and the rocks towards the Pointe de Merquel.

A combination of the smell of salt and iodine!

4h15 of walking over 16.5 km through marshes and bocage before reaching the ocean...

Accessibility: coastal path and paths along the salt marshes reserved for pedestrians. Beware, there is a section that is impassable at high tide.

On 4 levels, the force of the wings, 52m² of sail, drives the spinning wheel, the lantern, the big iron, which, in their turn, by various gears will make turn the sorter, the current grinding stone, the blutterie, to obtain the fine flower and the gruel...

Duration of the visit 45 minutes.
