    Here in the Place du Bouffay there are a few stores and restaurants. The tourism office is in the northwest corner, home of the only public computer with internet access in the whole town. Sometimes they have concerts in the main square. While we were visiting we saw a Celtic Rock band playing there.

    The Nantes-Brest canal had been discussed since the 16th century but it wasn't until the 1800s when the British Fleet blockaded Brest that Napoleon decided to build it for safe inland passage for his military. Not all of the canal is still passable today but many of the 328 locks up and down the canal are still used and often the lock keeper still lives in a house right next to the lock, as is the case in Malestroit. We were able to witness the lock in action as two boats came through while we were out for a stroll. It is popular to cycle the path that follows the length of the canal so you will also see many bikers about.

    Jean and Adrian, our hosts at La Maison Blanche, recommended this place to us and even booked us reservations the night of the Celtic concert. The food was typical French fare but probably some of the best tasting food I'd had. The service was a little hit or miss, owing to the fact that they were very busy but the servers were extremely nice and even tried their English on us.

    Favorite Dish: I had a really good salad to start and a kind of pork confit for my entree. I also tried an amazing fruit tart for dessert.
