Le Canal de la Martinière

Easy riding

By lav, on 24/08/2011

The Canal was opened in 1892, as an alternative to the section of the Loire between Paimboeuf and Le Pellerin, where shallow waters make navigation difficult. However, the canal was soon abandoned by shipping. You can explore this historic waterway by taking the peaceful, scenic little road which runs along its banks. Push on a little further and you will arrive at Paimboeuf, a former port now a great favourite with artists.
