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).

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.

We are familiar with the area and I wanted to rent a house as close to the beach as possible. I must say, the owners are very friendly and charming who made us feel very welcome throughout the duration of our stay. The house itself does have stunning views of the sea as highlighted by previous reviewers. To wake up and have breakfast with glorious sea views is a perfect start to the day. The interior of the house is very clean and having 3 bathrooms is extremely handy after taking 2 kids to the beach. There is parking for your hire vehicle within a secure car park as well as off road parking if required. The beach is a 2 minute walk via an access road which runs adjacent to the house. The beach is very nice and the temperature of the water was perfect for swimming in. In terms of facilities, a short 5 minute walk will take you to the nearest restaurant and the entrance to the Grand Plage. I can also recommend Nautic Sports, also a 5 minute walk, where you can rent kayaks, paddle boards etc for very reasonable prices. Overall the quality of the property is excellent and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to any of our friends.

                                                                                                5 of 5

It has an excellent swimming pool and the accommodation is comfortable, surprisingly spacious and family friendly - with all the domestic facilities one needs. Our family group comprised eight adults and two infants and we fitted in just fine. The weather was pretty perfect too and most evenings found us eating outside in the garden under the big parasols. With the huge beaches of Carnac nearby we found almost all we could want here. We warmly recommend this villa to other families.
