Visit Vannes with the family
Vannes, the name alone brings to mind images of its mediaeval town centre, still surrounded by its protective ramparts as it was back in the days of the kings. And it’s without doubt that aspect that the kids are going to really adore during your family holiday in Vannes: playing at knights in armour along the narrow streets with their authentic half-timbered houses! All together the town counts no less than 170 of them, each more colourful than the last. Have fun trying to pick your favourite!
And after that all-essential visit to the street corner where Rue Rogue meets Rue Noé, to offer your regards to Vannes and his wife, it’s time to set off to the Conleau peninsula. So how about a dip in the seawater swimming pool, before taking to the road again?
Visit Vannes as a couple
All around the town of Vannes, the incredible decor of the Gulf of Morbihan invites you for a delightful excursion à deux. There’s no doubt about it, southern Brittany offers no more romantic scenery!
Leaving from the harbour in Vannes, head over the waves to the Île d’Arz, a short 15-minute trip by the shuttle ferry. Then take your time to wander, as you explore this veritable theatre of greenery. And with 15km of coastline, there’s no end of possibilities when it comes to bathing, simply find your own little corner of paradise! The other unmissable beauty spot is the Île aux Moines, the largest island in the gulf. After bathing against a background of multicoloured huts, don’t miss tasting the oysters, having only just left the water they could hardly be fresher!
