    Medieval times come to life in Vannes

    Protected by thick stone walls, Vannes has stood since Roman times, and many of its medieval buildings are still standing in great condition. Stay in a Vannes holiday rental and you'll have time to explore historic churches and cathedrals, visit museums and enjoy the artisanal shops within the town's 4 walls. Home to several Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as rustic boulangeries and creperies where you can pick up a treat, it's a great spot to try all sorts of French classics. Set in the Gulf of Morbihan, which accounts for its mild climate, Vannes offers sandy beaches and woodland walks nearby.

    Explore the historic centre of Vannes

    Walking through the imposing gates of Porte St-Vincent Ferrier, you'll feel like you've stepped back into medieval times, with beautifully preserved timber-clad houses and cobblestone streets. Some Vannes holiday rentals are even located within the town's walls, allowing you to immerse yourself in history during your stay. Visiting the 2 museums inside the walls is a great way to learn more about this unique town. Inside the imposing grey stone Chateau Gaillard you'll find rooms stuffed full of archaeological treasures discovered over the centuries. La Cohue is a converted market turned art museum, with a wide selection of contemporary and historic works.

    Wander around Vannes' old city walls

    Once you've explored the town, take a stroll around the old city walls to learn more about the history of Vannes. The Remparts de Vannes date back to Roman times, and there's a 45-minute walk that takes you around the walls, with lots of interesting features to spot along the way like the Jardin des Remparts, whose neatly kept rows of flowers and hedges create a regal look. The various parts of the battlements were built in different periods, so you can spot interesting architectural features such as turrets and towers as you take the tour.

    Pleasant summers and mild weather in Vannes

    Vannes enjoys the classic Brittany climate, and it's popular in the summer when there's usually a pleasant heat in the low 20s. Autumn and spring are both popular times to book Vannes holiday rentals, as the town's position on the south coast of Brittany means there's not as much rain as the rest of the region, plus temperatures are mild. Winters rarely reach freezing, although there can be a chilly wind, and Vannes looks particularly enchanting when decked out in Christmas decorations.

    Enjoy sandy beaches on Vannes' Gulf of Morbihan

    Vannes sits on the Gulf of Morbihan, a natural sheltered harbour that has excellent conditions for swimming. Conleau Beach is a cove with a sandy beach surrounded by trees. During the summer months, the shallow waters are full of swimmers, and lots of small boats dock nearby to explore Vannes.
