Kayak and boat on the Erdre

For those who want to avoid the crowds on the coast, there are also the banks of the Loire, the Sèvre or the Erdre. There were a lot of people, especially in Sucé-sur-Erdre. The town’s canoe-kayak club has rented equipment to more than 70 people over the weekend. “The weather is nice so people are enjoying it. The setting is splendid. You can go as far as Nort-sur-Erdre, cross the Mazerolles plain and see completely different landscapes. It’s great to observe“, says Sophie Barbieux, a member of the club.
