This section of the river forms part of the Nantes-Brest Canal. The river is famous for its salmon and trout fishing and you can walk along the tow path through the green river valley, stopping a picturesque locks along the way.
Every summer, a jazz festival takes place in Châteauneuf n the banks of the river. With four stages lining the river Aulne, the Fest Jazz has a fantastic atmosphere with something for all generations to enjoy including music and dancing, picturesque scenery, and plenty of good food and wine. This year's festival is on 27, 28 and 29 July. We saw one of the act taking part in the festival, the Good Time Jazz band, on a visit in March, performing at the Tal ar Pont bar which overlooks the river. We can thoroughly recommend them!
