Public footpaths

Loire footpath

The promenade on the banks of the Loire follows an old towing path between Nantes and Mauves. It offers in nearly 14 km a great diversity of landscapes characteristic of the Loire (easily flooded meadows, islands, oxbow lakes, salt licks, hillsides of Mauves) as well as a series of picturesque sites, witnesses to local history (lock de l'Arche, Hamlet of Bellevue, sandpits, port of Thouaré, old café of the Saturelle (grasshopper)).
