Landudec walking and hiking route

Walk Instructions

The route crosses typical Breton agricultural countryside before reaching the 'sentier botanique' (botanical footpath) and St Anne's Fountain. Paths and minor roads combine to provide excellent conditions underfoot. The 'Jardin Botanique' has an interesting collection of named trees, provided and maintained by the unicipality. St Anne's Fountain is a spring with ancient religious connotations. There was formerly a chapel on the site but this had been removed by 1743. The stone construction which followed was rebuilt in 1990.

Start/car parking - Large car park on the right of the main street (as approached from Hilguy), behind the church. Landudec is now far from Hilguy. Turn right in Plogastel St Germain, pass the Proxi grocery and continue to the main D784. Turn left to reach Landudec in about 4 miles. Turn right at the traffic lights.

Walk back to the traffic lights and turn right along the main road.

1. In about 150 yards come to the roundabout in front of the SuperU. Bear slightly right along a residential road, or drop off the road to walk parallel to it through the small park - there is a sign 'Circuit de la Fontaine' where a footpath leaves the roundabout to enter the park. Pass to the right of a large sports hall and continue along a stony track, signposted 'Circuit de la Fontaine' and 'Ty Jacq'. The route is through flat farming land, typical of inland Brittany.

2. Approach the farm Ty Jacq and join a minor surfaced road, turning left, again with a 'Circuit de la Fontaine' sign. Walk by the roadside for about ½ mile to the main D784. Go straight across and bear left to follow an even more minor road.

3. Turn right opposite a large agricultural building to take a narrow, signposted, path descending close to the edge of a field. Join a surfaced road at the bottom and turn left. In about 300 yards turn left again; up the back to the right is a large farm. The signposted grass path rises gently under trees. After about 200 metres ignore a broad track to the left and in another 300 metres go round to the right, then turn left at a fence in a short distance. In a further 50 yards reach a surfaced roadway, turning left again for 50 yards. Turn right into a small picnic/parking area and the start of the 'sentier botanique'. There is a prominent information board.

4. Go right to follow the path as it descends gently along the lower fringe of the botanical area, beautifully sunken between old stone walls, soon reaching St Anne's Fountain, where there is a picnic table and information board. Bear up to the left (signpost), steeply uphill for a short distance, and stay with the path as it changes direction from time to time, along the edge of the botanical area. Turn right at the top corner to leave the area along a narrow woodland path signposted 'Bourg de Landudec'.

5. At a 'T' junction with a more major track turn left to walk to a narrow surfaced road. Turn right to walk uphill to the town centre. There are public conveniences by the Mairie, to the left. Cross the main road, by the traffic lights, to return to the car park.
