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).

Tiny terrace, 2 chairs and table provided. An especially welcoming touch was the welcome basket provided by the owner: juice, coffee, tea, traditional pancakes, butter, jam and fruit. Lovely! Shops and restaurants within 5 minutes' walking distance. Definitely a place to come back to. Anne Lockhart, Denmark

                                                            A charming house full of character in an equally charming location

                                                            Number 3 Ruelle Des Voilliers is a lovely family house with a real seaside atmosphere about it. It has been sympathetically and tastefully modernised inside, with the new terrace and walled garden providing loads of relaxing and sunny space. The loft has been converted very well and has great views from the velux windows. Nice views, too from all the rooms on the first two floors. Wi fi is solid and reliable. Parking easy outside. What no information about the house can convey is the delightful location of Ruelle Des Voilliers. It is at the heart of a maze of characterful lanes and alleys which were the heart of the original port town of La Trinite. The artisan boulanger is a three minute walk away just round the corner from the church. Couldn't be more French. And we bought fish from the Halle Des Poissons several times during our week there. The stones of Carnac and Locqmariaquer and within ten minutes drive. Both stunning historical sites which must not be missed. Lovely beaches are also within ten minutes walk from the house. We loved it all.

                                                            Fabulous Family house

                                                            This house had it all. Ideally located near the marina's shops, bars and restaurant, but in a peaceful cul de sac, also has beaches nearby. The house was beautifully decorated with a fantastic pool. Would happily recommend.
