The Vilaine, the main river flowing through Rennes, find also its way through Vitré. No wonder that it is the namesake of the department Ille-et-Vilaine.There it is much smaller and also very natural, not like in Rennes, where it is forced into a straight river bed and for some part even covered.

The Vilaine is meandering through the meadows, calmly flowwing through the already rural surroundings. Its smooth surface is a nearly perfect mirror with only few ripples.

And still within the town Vitré feels like a village with the sheep on the green.

From further away Vitré is less dominated by the castle, but by the steeples of the churches. And above it the Breton sky with its characteristic clouds.w6-sky-over-vitre

And here we can see a typical early autumn scene: the harvest is done, the trees are still green and the trees here are like are gate into the town.w8-fall
