The Morbihan area is noted for its outstanding beauty, where almost one third of Brittany’s coastline is to be found. Gorgeous sandy beaches and rocky coves abound, which are never overcrowded even in the Summer. The roads are unbelievably quiet even in the Peak season, which makes travelling around very easy. Parking is usually free.

There are many towns to be visited including Auray, a mediaeval town with an old port at St Goustan and superb restaurants. Pontivy and Josselin are famous for their chateaux, Vannes an old market town and port has a magnificent cathedral and lots of interesting shops and 2 markets a week.
