The beautiful island-studded Golfe du Morbihan – literally ‘Little Sea’ in Breton - is central to the department of Morbihan’s pretty seaside resorts, marinas and long beaches making this one of Brittany’s ideal holiday locations.
The endless Morbihan coastline provides plenty of opportunity for watersports, La Trinite-sur-Mer is a popular sailing choice.
The numerous islands, some of which are car-free such as Houat and Hoedic, are a haven for cyclists, horse riders and walkers.
Inland, there are also excellent walking trails in the Forest of Quenecan beside the beautiful Lake Guerledan. For heritage and culture, visit Morbihan’s capital city of Vannes, or marvel at Carnac’s giant Neolithic stones.
How better to wash down Sarzeau’s famously fabulous oysters than with a glass or 2 of Muscadet wine, cultivated in the area around Nantes.
