Cancale's foody flavours

Oysters in a market in CancaleIf a local coastal town full of boutique shops, crêperies and fish restaurants is just what you after then Cancale in Northern France is the place to go!

There are a couple of pay and display car parks and other parking options making travelling the short journey by car from Château des Ormes campsite more appealing. The coastal stretch around Cancale isn’t too long but there is plenty to see.

Boutique shops are filled with your expected post cards and souvenirs with the addition of local sea salt, cider and fish. A whole shop is dedicated to sardines decorated in beautiful tins. Flavours ranged from olive and tomato to curry sauce. Tasters were available to try which assured customers the delicacies were as beautiful to eat as the tins to look at.

On the far end of the harbour town is a mussel farm with farmers selling their produce in a very small market on a platform by the farm. With most if not every restaurant along the sea front selling “moules frites” it’s guaranteed they haven’t travelled far!

Other campsite reps and I stopped at a café for a crêpe and to take in the scenery. The crêpes came out smothered in chocolate and caramel and within seconds they had been demolished!

All crêpes within Brittany have been amazing so far and just thinking about it is making my mouth water - be sure to come and try them for yourself whilst staying at Chateau des Ormes campsite.
