Nothing says Brittany like seafood and nothing says seafood like this fishing village, one of the most picturesque in the region. Renowned for its offshore bancs d'huîtres (oyster beds), Cancale has countless quayside eateries where you can get a dozen preshucked oysters, sit on a wall facing the sea, and slurp down these magnificent mollusks. At the Château Richeux's bistro, Le Coquillage (a nearby culinary mecca), you can enjoy them as part of a full-on seafood feast. If your interest is more academic, learn how oysters are "farmed" at the Musée de la Ferme Marine.
