Le Tour-du-Parc holiday rentals are set in a commune in the Morbihan department of Brittany. Here you’ll be in a part of France famed for both its beautiful coastal scenery and fascinating history, with a range of outdoor recreation available, as well as a great choice for days out.
Le Tour-du-Parc holiday accommodation is set next to the coast, and a major source of revenue for the area is oyster catching – in fact the commune is set on the Route de l’huitre. There are a number of beaches easily reached from your accommodation here. One of the closest is Penvins, boasting a the three kilometre-long stretch of golden sand, perfect for swimming and sunbathing on warm summer days, or for scenic walks at any other time of the year. On the Rhuys peninsula there’s an extensive network of bike paths, and you’ll be able to take the eight-kilometre trip northwest to Saint-Armel, which sits on the beautiful Morbihan Gulf. Le Tour-du-Parc self-catering holiday gites are just minutes in the car from a host of other sites of interest. Sarzeau is particularly close, and dates to the 1300s. This town is home to the Chateau de Suscinio, which is the major landmark, and dates to the late Middle Ages. In the 20th Century the castle was renovated according to plans from the 1400s, which makes it unique, as most castles in the region were modified with advent of gunpowder. If you head west, a little further along the Rhuys Peninsula you’ll come to Golf de Rhuys, one of the most lauded courses in Brittany. It’s set in pristine natural surroundings, within a natural sanctuary, which means egrets and herons are a common sight on the course.
Another great option for an excursion from a holiday rental in Le Tour-du-Parc would be the city of Vannes. Here you’ll be able to enjoy a beautifully preserved medieval town, home to numerous half-timbered houses, and enclosed in places by the original walls.

Spring and autumn days bring highs in the teens, while summers are pleasantly warm. At this time of year you can expect more sunshine and conditions in the mid-20s.
