The Nantes Brest canal is a delightful place to spend a little time, and you can watch the barges as they moor up near the centre of Malestroit. It is possible to hire a boat yourself to explore the waterway, and this is a pleasant and different way to discover the area. The nearby village of St. Marcel is an interesting spot to visit, and it houses a museum dedicated to the Breton Resistance movement. This is located on the ground where a battle against the Nazis took place, the battle having been won by the Resistance fighters.
