Things to Do

The varied coast with sandy beaches at Kerhilio and rocky coves on the Quiberon peninsular are 30 - 45 minutes drive. The Blavet River has canoeing and fishing and the towpath is excellent for cycle rides.(Bikes can be hired in Pontivy). The restored Breton village of Poul Fetan close by is fun for all the family. The historic towns of Vannes, josselin, Auray, Pontivy are well worth a visit. The lovely walled town of Vannes is a must on any visit to Morbihan. Take a walk around the narrow, cobbled streets, through the medieval gates, before settling down for lunch at a café alongside the attractive marina. If you’re with the kids, head down to the Parc du Golfe for a look around the aquarium and Jardin aux Papillons (butterfly garden). Once one of the busiest ports in Brittany, picture-perfect St-Goustan is now one of the most popular sites in Morbihan. Enjoy lunch in a waterside restaurant while admiring the half-timbered houses before joining a boat trip around the gulf or crossing the stone bridge to explore Auray. West of Mûr-de-Bretagne is the Lac de Guerlédan, Brittany’s largest lake. Not only is this the perfect place for sunning yourself or messing about on the water but the area also offers extensive trails for walking and cycling. The Quénécan forest and Abbaye de Bon Repos are not to be missed.
