Carnac Holiday Homes

Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Carnac, France your home away from home.

Carnac, France

Carnac lies just a short distance from the south coast of Brittany, in the Morbihan department of north-west France. The town is one of the few destinations in Brittany that has something for everyone, with the famous Carnac Stones drawing those interested in history and heritage, the bars and nightclubs drawing the party crowd, and the beaches drawing almost everybody.

Things to do in Carnac, France

Carnac has two main draws for tourists: its stones and its beaches. The stones that we refer to are the Carnac Stones, an extensive display of around 3,000 Neolithic menhirs that were erected by the pre-Celtic people of the region around 5,000 years ago. The stones are the largest collection of their type in the world, and are placed in three main sites around the town. Learning about the different alignment patterns and their historical significance is the first task for many a visitor to Carnac.

In far more recent times Carnac has gained in popularity as a seaside resort, and the town has become a popular alternative to the tourist-packed resorts of the French Riviera. The beaches in Carnac number five in total, with La Grand Plage being the biggest and most popular of the lot. Plage Men Du and Beaumer are two quieter options that lie just to the east of the town.

As with almost anywhere on the planet that draws tourist crowds, Carnac has significantly developed its other amenities and attractions. A good selection of bars, cafes, restaurants and nightclubs can be found around the beachfront, keeping visitors of all ages happy until the early hours of the morning.

Those seeking a holiday away from man-made attractions should consider heading out into the woods, with the countryside that surrounds Carnac being ripe for a whole spectrum of outdoor pursuits.

Places to visit on holiday in Carnac, France

Although Carnac has a lot to see and do, dragging yourself away from the town is a must, as there are a number of other places well worth visiting just a short distance away. The medieval town of Auray (15km) is one such spot, whilst Camors is an outdoor adventurer’s paradise 35km to the north. Those seeking a quieter beach spot should consider Erdeven (9km), which is just a ten-minute drive up the road from Carnac.

Weather in Carnac, France

The weather in Carnac is similar to the weather in Britain, but with slightly warmer summers and milder winters. The period from May to September is the warmest and driest, hence also the busiest time in which to visit. Summer temperatures usually peak at around 29°C, though slightly hotter is always possible.

Travel to Carnac, France

The south of the Morbihan department does not have a lot in the way of airports, especially those that receive flights from international destinations. As a result, the best bet for getting to Carnac is usually a connecting flight to Lorient South Brittany Airport (LRT, 59km) or a direct flight to Nantes Airport (NTE, 147km).

excellent apartment fully equipped with superb views over bay

5 of 5
This apartment has everything you could possibly need its clean, tidy and well maintained. The beds are comfortable the view is perfect and its only a short walk to the shops restaurants bars and cafe's. The Harbor and bay are perhaps the best in the area with lots to see do.

Ideal location and lovely property

5 of 5
The property is ideally located for the town, beach, supermarket and restaurants. Inside its clean, a lovely size and well equipped. The only downside is the main road is noisy at night in season as lorries drive by and it's a route home from the town for locals after clubbing. If the windows are closed you can't hear it but upstairs of the house gets very warm. The garden is lovely and seems to get sun in areas all day and even though on a main road it's reasonably sucluded with the high fence around it.
