The commune of La Richardais is a must for those who want to discover and appreciate the banks of the River Rance. Its setting, surrounded by nature, gives the town a calm, gentle and serene feel.
You don’t come to La Richardais by chance. Whether it’s for the Manoli Museum and Sculpture Garden, a visit to Rance Barrage (one of the largest tidal power plants in the world) or to honour the patron saint of sailors by visiting Saint Clément’s Church, La Richardais will make an impression on you.
Nature is present everywhere and easily tamed.
From the La Garde Basin, for fishing enthusiasts to the Pointe du Grognet headland, its Manoli sculpture and its unobstructed view of the estuary, you can also stroll through the town’s narrow streets. As you explore the flower-filled gardens, you will discover its typical marina and its crane dating from 1869, which is still in working order, or, even wilder still, the Grandes-Rivières Bay.
As a family destination, it has everything you need to have a great time. Rowing, why not? Row on the River Rance to the rhythm of the oars…
Whether water-based or not, all activities are firmly geared towards relaxation and well-being.
Rance Valley very much contributes to the charm of the area. You can enjoy it on a cruise, starting from La Richardais of course!
