Séné holiday accommodation is set in and near a coastal town on the south coast of Brittany’s next to the Gulf of Morbihan, in the department of the same name. It’s an area known for its wealth of coastal nature, with interesting eco-systems and a host of activities on offer close by.
Séné self-catering accommodation is found adjacent to an important nature reserve. It encompasses a large area, with a range of habitats, including salt-flats and marshes. Many people come here for guided walks and nature walks, and on the way you’ll be able to spot a fantastic variety of birdlife. The reserve is equipped with hides and observation platforms. From Séné holiday gites you’ll also be able to reach the islands that sit within the Gulf of Morbihan. Ile aux Moines is considered one of the most attractive and can be reached by ferry. This island is known for its peaceful atmosphere, and features a lovely village and a couple of important prehistoric sites.
The town of Vannes is within easy reach of Séné holiday rentals, and no more than a couple of miles up the road. It’s considered one of the must-see destinations in the area, thanks to its numerous medieval buildings. Indeed, many of the buildings that line the streets in the old centre are half-timbered, while Vannes cathedral dates to the 1500s and boasts a blend of architectural styles. The harbour is well worth a visit, and you’ll also be able to see the city walls, which are in an excellent state of preservation. Meanwhile it would be well worth taking a boat trip to see more of the Gulf of Morbihan – an interesting feature of these waters is that there are a number of islands that have become submerged over the centuries, and their monuments can still be seen peeking through water.
No more than 10 kilometres from Séné holiday villas is the town of Sarzeau, which is a classic Breton town, with dates to the 1300s and features Suscinio Castle, which served as a hunting lodge for the local aristocracy.
Séné holiday rentals are set in a region with a mild climate. Temperatures here are affected by the Atlantic, with mild winters, and moderately warm summers, when temperatures reach the mid-20s in July and August. Winter lows rarely sink below freezing here.
Séné self-catering accommodation sits just over an hour southwest of Rennes Airport (RNS), which has flights to and from Southampton (SOU), Exeter (EXE) and Manchester (MAN) with Flybe.
