My walk of the day in Chauvé

Ma balade du jour : circuit Marais et Moulins
If, at the foot of the Church of Chauvé, your path crosses that of a benevolent soul who advises you to discover the Moulins et Marais circuit at the end of the day, listen to her and trust her.

Like Damien Dufour, nature-loving photographer, enjoy the silence of the Chauvé countryside: "Behind every memory is a journey. And the possibility of living." It is in this perspective of course that he criss-crossed this Destination Pornic circuit for us.
Douce lumière à Chauvé
The soft lights of the end of the day offer this bucolic circuit the ideal atmosphere to discover the hinterland of Pornic.

As the sun's rays are less powerful, the meadows and marshes of this walking and cycling loop will reveal all their colors and their soothing contrasts... ... thus inviting you to daydream, to escape.

The wind fades and gives way to the tenuous but still very present song of the birds and the sound of the breeze in the treetops.

In the background, the heavy tread of cows in the meadows and the clanking of their bells announcing their proximity.
At the start of the evening, the sunny petals modestly attract your attention and bring your gaze to the naturally flowered aisles.

All you have to do is close your eyes for a moment and smell the thousand scents of the countryside to rediscover all its charm. Far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
