Discover the highlights of Southern Brittany around your Appart Hôtel in Vannes


Auray and Saint Goustan

Located around twenty kilometres from Vannes, Auray is both a small medieval town of character and a town of art and history, which welcomes many tourists every year.

Today, the town is divided into 2 distinct districts: the Ville-Haute with the church of Saint Gildas, and the Ville-Basse, bordered by the river Loc'h. The town centre and its historic heritage, as well as the little port of Saint Goustan, lined with pretty timber-framed houses, make it a charming tourist destination!

Carnac and its alignments

Just 35 minutes from Vannes, Carnac is sure to amaze you with its megalithic alignments dating back to the prehistoric era. Discover them on foot or on board the little tourist train during the summer months, to the delight of the little ones!

Then head to the seaside resort of Carnac to relax on the fine sand or enjoy a drink or meal on the terrace.

Finally, to round off your visit in style, watch the sun slowly set over Anse du Pô as you sample some local oysters and seafood...

The Rhuys peninsula

The Rhuys peninsula is home to many must-see places, making it a very popular destination! If you're lucky enough to visit, be sure not to miss the estate and Château de Suscinio in Sarzeau, a medieval fortress and former residence of the Dukes of Brittany dating back over 8 centuries!

Then visit the Cairn de Petit Mont: this megalithic remnant from prehistoric times offers a host of fun activities linked to history and the Neolithic period, which should appeal to the whole family! You can also admire some incredibly rich flora and fauna...

The Rhuys peninsula is also full of places to relax and daydream: the Fogeo beach in Arzon (the harbour is also worth a visit) or the long sandy beaches of Sarzeau, for example.

If you love sea excursions more than anything, why not take a cruise through the Golfe du Morbihan and stop off at one of its islands.

The Gulf Islands

Ile aux Moines and Ile d'Arz are the 2 largest islands in the Gulf of Morbihan, which has 42 of them!

Île aux Moines, the largest of the cross-shaped islands, takes its name from the monks of Redon Abbey and is surrounded by flowers and nature. Just 15km from Vannes and just over 6km long, it's easy to get around the island on foot or by bike, crossing the Bois d'Amour or passing through its sumptuous narrow streets lined with fishermen's cottages...

The island of Arz, which can be reached in 20 minutes from the prequ'île de Conleau, is a little wilder and will delight keen hikers, who will be able to walk around it easily thanks to its coastal path, while admiring its charming old houses and the breathtaking view over the Golfe du Morbihan...

The Quiberon peninsula

You'll love the miles of untamed coastline on the ocean side, a magnificent sight during the spring tides, and the bay of Quiberon and its fine sandy beaches on the opposite side...

You arrive via the Penthièvre isthmus, where you literally drive between two seas, then you pass through Saint-Pierre-Quiberon, a pleasant village that is home to little corners of paradise, particularly for sailing and water sports enthusiasts. Finally, once you've crossed the entire peninsula, either by the main road or by taking the wild coast road to admire the magnificent scenery, drive around the Pointe du Conguel, at the very end of the peninsula, and admire the sea that surrounds you.

From the seaside resort of Quiberon, which is very lively in high season, you can take a boat to Belle-Ile-en-mer, Houat or Hoëdic and discover superb landscapes and heavenly beaches...
