Carnac is known throughout the world for its unique rows of ancient standing stones. The town is split into two areas: Carnac-Ville, where you’ll find the Museum of Prehistory, and Carnac-Plage, a family seaside resort with a state-of-the-art thalassotherapy centre. Oyster farming is big business.
With fantastic views over the isle of Groix, Kerguelen beach, 1.6 km long, offers excellent water quality for swimming. It's also home to one of Europe’s biggest watersports centres where you can try a number of activities (sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding...) and watch competitions. With two lifeguard posts, this beach is very well supervised.
The walled town of Vannes is without doubt one of Brittany’s most attractive sights and a must-visit on any trip to Morbihan. Wander around the well-preserved medieval streets before enjoying a harbour-side lunch then taking a boat trip around the gulf. Kids will love the aquarium and butterflies.
The vibrant university city of Rennes, Brittany’s administrative capital, is worth a day or two of anyone’s time. Take a wander around the medieval streets of the picture-perfect old town and admire the impressive parliament building before relaxing in the Thabor gardens.
A towering 16th-century spire rockets up above the remaining medieval ramparts of Hennebont, an historic port at a strategic river-crossing on the Blavet, at the back of Lorient’s huge natural harbour. In the 19th century, industry arrived in town, plus an important stud farm championing the Breton horse.
Jutting out into the sea for 9 miles (14km) and just 72ft (22m) wide at its narrowest point, the Quiberon Peninsula is a tourist destination par excellence. With its rugged coastline, sweeping sandy beaches, fishing villages and rich cultural history, this beautiful area of Morbihan won’t disappoint.
Half way between Lorient and Quiberon, the Étel river flows inland like an outstretched hand for 9 square miles. Its dangerous mouth has swallowed many a sailor and its town of the same name was once one France’s most important tuna fishing ports. These days it has plenty to interest visitors.
Very nice crêperie in Baud. Friendly welcome by the owners, a very attentive, friendly and smiling staff. For gourmands do not hesitate to taste sweet and delicious crepes. Would highly recommend.
This is a fantastic place to visit, when we go to France we love searching for the smaller amusement parks and this is by far the best one we have found so far.
The owners Sam and Vicky could not have been anymore helpful. We were thoroughly looked after for our entire stay. They were extremely helpful with accommodating our youngest daughter in her wheelchair and Vicky arranged trips to the cinema and a local pottery barn on the occasional rainy days.
The gite was really comfortable and had everything we needed. The pool had the option to keep the cover on so we could still swim regardless of what the weather was doing!
We only went to one nearby restaurant where we had a delicious and reasonably priced lunch.
I would whole heartedly recommend these gites to people travelling with a young family and to maturer travellers. The small play area meant that all of the children got to know each other and could play there safely in the evenings. A great place to stay!
It was really lovely to meet you all and the perfect guests with three generations together for two weeks .
It was such a shame that you did not hire a car for your parents who flew by plane at the last minute and were without a car , although I did suggest that you possibly hire a car from Super U for a few days so that you were not bound to the gite complex .
There were so many places that you left unexplored because there was not room to fit everybody into the one car.
The complex is a perfect location for anybody wishing to unwind after the hustle and bustle of work and school runs with young children .
Ideally located within 30 minutes of larger towns , chateaus and beaches .Absolutely beautiful coastline that you did not get chance to enjoy .
I really hope that you visit this area again and enjoy the wonders of the Morbihan Region .
You are welcome anytime and we hope that you will venture this way again in the future .
We stayed in L'Aloutte & La Faisane, a group of 10 including 5 children ages ranging from 10 to 1.
The properties were spacious,clean, comfortable & well equipped. The site was well maintained with pretty gardens.
We made good use of the swimming pool, although the weather was not kind the pool cover made it possible to use regardless. Vicky provided lots of toys & games for the children & the gites were well stocked with books.
Vicky & Sam were very helpful with tips on the local area & places to visit. We had a lovely time.
Hi Sue and everybody , it was really great to meet all the family and and lovely to hear all the children playing so well together and perfectly behaved .
Such a nice family it was a pleasure to have you stay and you are welcome back here at anytime .
Thank you for being the gite so clean and tidy after your departure .
Vicky and Sam xx
Lovely Gite in the French Coutryside. Hosts were perfect and very helpful.
Dear Christine and Peter
Thank you very much for your review , it is really helpful for future guests to be able to feel re assured about the holiday home that they are booking .
Enjoy the rest of the summer.
Best wishes and it was lovely to see all the family enjoying time together
We had a lovely time staying at the largest of Vicky and Sam's gites. The bedrooms are a good size and there is loads of space downstairs as well as sofas and dining chairs for everyone. Vicky was a fantastic host and provided travel cots and high chairs for our twins and also answered some quite specific questions that I had before we arrived. The pool was great - perfect temperature - and so was the rest of the outdoor space, our 3 year old loved the play equipment and the garden as well as the other toys available to borrow during our stay. We were unlucky with the weather on our 10 day stay which meant it was a little difficult to get our clothes dry after washing but we did manage it and there were laundromat facilities available in Baud if we'd needed a dryer. It was great to have towels for a reasonable fee and Vicky provided more when the weather meant that they weren't drying inside. All in all we had a wonderful stay and hope we can return again and get luckier with the weather next time! Thanks so much.
I am so pleased that the gite, pool and gardens worked for you with all your young family and your mum and dad .
What a handful with twins and a 3 year old .
Thank you for the information on the soft play activity in Pontivy, it will be useful for other families who need to wear out their children .
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here and were able to enjoy the beaches and local medieval towns .
It would be lovely to see you all again , and should you decide to book with us again you would always be welcome .
Vicky and Sam
