Vannes and the Gulf of Morbihan
The city of Vannes has retained all the charm of the ancient medieval town it once was. It is the perfect balance of sophistication and liveliness. You will find the historic centre with its cobbled streets irresistible. Vannes is well-known as the former home of the Dukes of Brittany. Make the most of your visit to explore La Cohue, the Museum of Fine Arts. It houses permanent collections of modern and contemporary art showing a substantial cross-section of painting since the mid-20th century. And don’t forget to visit the city's majestic cathedral!
the Gulf of Morbihan
A little inland sea in its own right, the Gulf of Morbihan is a magical place where sea, land and sky blend into ever-changing and unfamiliar landscapes. This lively maritime enclave belongs to the Most Beautiful Bays in the World club. Fishing boats and sailing boats come and go here all year round. It includes dozens of islands and megalithic monuments, and in particular the dolmens (or long barrows) on Île-aux-Moines and on Île d'Arz.
For walkers, the gulf is a dream come true: over 60 miles of coastal paths looking out onto the unspoilt landscapes of the "Little Sea”. You might stop off at the Île de Berder, not far from the seaside town of Larmor-Baden. The scenery in this area is stunning. The Gulf is a really wonderful destination, and after a first visit, it’s usually love at first sight.
