Andrew and Rachel.
The route should be fine for a touring tandem. We've ridden from St Malo to our house in Tarn & Garonne on our Dawes Discovery Twin three times, two of them pulling a trailer. There's a fair bit of common ground between our route and yours - and no, we've not tried the St Nazaire bridge. My partner has suggested it, but I'm a coward, the Coueron / Le Pellerin Ferry's fine for me. I've written up our tours on Crazyguyonabike
. That link will take you to the accounts I've written there. I've included a map for every page.
I was just wondering what you'd do with the tandem if your wife bales out? Hopefully if you've got enough comfy hotels booked she won't. I'd add +1 to the advice above to use Logis de France.
