Located between the Breton port towns of Vannes and Lorient on the south coast of Brittany, France, Camors is a magnificent place from which to explore the maze of islands in the Gulf of Morbihan to the amazing historical marvels of the Morbihan countryside and from the sandy beaches of the Cote Sauvage to the quaint Breton market towns which adorn the area.
There is so much to do from holiday rental accommodation in Camors. The Sandy Atlantic beaches which line the Gulf of Morbihan are some of the nicest sand beaches anywhere in northern France, with many miles of sand on which to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The beaches of Carnac and Etel are amongst the finest in the immediate proximity of a Camors property rental, but with so many little secluded beaches to choose from within a half hour drive, you will be spoilt for choice. Anyone with an interest in sailing will be completely at home in a Camors rental villa, as the sailing around the many islands of the Gulf of Morbihan is exceptional.
The village of Camors backs onto the huge, dark Forest of Camors, which is a famous destination for walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders. The forest is a wonderfully quiet and natural place, in which you can easily get carried away with the legends of King Arthur and Merlin the Magician which are associated with the area. The Forest Adventure Park, which offers tree based entertainment, is a wonderful place to visit, especially with children as your nerve is tested from treetop platforms seemingly miles above the ground!
Camors accommodation is also perfectly suited to cosy fishing trips and golf holidays. There are many stretches of river in the area famous for their fishing credentials, and all you need is a license, available from any tourist information centre in the Camors area. Short holiday fishing permits are easily available, and very good value. There are also a good range of golf courses, the closest of which is the Rimaison Golf Course near Pontivy. The River Blavet, which runs through Camors, is a magnificent place to fish, although there are many canoes which paddle through the built-up stretches of the banks.
There are so many places to visit from a self catering Camors holiday cottage, apartment or gite. The amazing stones of Carnac are a huge tourist attraction for starters, but it is the neighbouring towns of Vannes and Lorient which provide possibly the largest selection of places of interest to those staying in Camors accommodation.
During the summer, the rural areas and beaches which surround Camors become a real treat to visit. Temperatures rise to an average of around 25˚C, reaching the low 30’s during midday. Even during the winter months, temperatures remain relatively mild, with temperatures averaging around 5˚C in the coldest months of winter.
There are many ways to reach self catering Camors holiday lettings. Dinard Airport and Brest Airport are both within a couple of hours drive, both receiving flights from across the UK. It may be easier to get to a Camors villa via ferry, as the ports of northern Brittany are all located within 50km. Reaching a Camors apartment is easily done from Paris too, by either road or rail.
