Your stamp from Beauport
To allow you to affix the stamp of the Abbey of Beauport in case of closure of the reception services, a stamp was placed near the km0 terminal by the care of the abbey. This stamp is freely accessible.
Its size corresponds to a credencial box. Just put the credencial on the stamp that is in relief, the pattern appears by rubbing a pencil on the credencial. Only use a gray, black or other color pencil. (neither ball pencil nor felt pen, it does not work).
This guide (in French only) describes the path from Beauport Abbey. This Way crosses département of Côtes d'Armor and Morbihan, joins the other Breton tracks in Redon and continues until Clisson.
The guide describes the itinerary for each of the stages of the Way, provides the corresponding maps as well as information on the heritage of the regions crossed. At the end of the guide, you will find the list of recommended accommodations.
This guide is updated every year in March. changes made in the year are published in the route sheets.
With the agreement of the Vendée Association of Pilgrims of Saint Jacques, the guide integrates the description of the stages of the Vendéen road from Clisson to Saint Hilaire la Palud. Nevertheless for more information, including the list of accommodation in Vendée, we advise you to consult the site of our friends of the Vendée association.
