Make a holiday rental, home, or villa in Morbihan, France your home away from home

Morbihan, France

Morbihan, France is the middle of the five departments of Brittany, North France. The area is bordered by Ille-et-Vilaine, Cotes-d-Armor and Finistere. Morbihan is a famous site for its impressive megalithic sites, which predate the Egyptian Pyramids and Stonehenge in Britain. The area is dotted with menhirs and dolmens, the origins of which are still not certain. Many believe they are ancient maps of constellations, some that they are an early calendar and others that they are memorials, but the mysterious rocks are certainly impressive. French gites in Morbihan give you access to fine beaches, unspoiled rural areas, with rivers full of fish and forests teaming with deer and wild boar. The distinctive Brittany cottages are beautiful places to rent if you are looking for rental accommodation in Morbihan.

Places to stay on Holiday in Morbihan, France

Vannes remains a medieval town at heart with ramparts, half timbered houses and the Cathedral quarter of the city, based around the impressive Cathedral St Pierre. The towns of Pontivy and Rochefort en-Terre also aid the medieval feel of the department, with crocked stone streets and magnificent squares.

Auray is a very pretty port town, and welcomes thousands of Christian pilgrims each year to Sainte-Anne-d’Auray. This is also one of the best places in Morbihan to go sailing, or take a cruise around the islands of Morbihan.

No one is entirely sure how many islands lie in the Gulf of Morbihan. This is mainly due to the differing definitions of an island. Is a piece of land which is cut off from the mainland at high tide considered an island? Because of this, there are somewhere between 40 and 365 islands in the Gulf.

Quiberon is Morbihan’s premium beach resort town. All the gites and villas in Quiberon are located on a slender peninsular, so has a huge number of golden beaches to offer.

Weather in Morbihan

The summer in Morbihan is warm, benefiting from the effects of the Golf Stream. Average temperatures are around 25°C, but winters are wet, and temperatures drop to an average of about 5°C.

The property was well located within walking distance of the beach, town and shops and within easy driving distance to Vannes, Quiberon and cote savage. Ideal spot for touring. Would we visit again - definitely.

Chris has been very friendly and helpfull and we enjoyed talking to her. At one or two cold evenings the oven heated the house quickly and nice. If you are looking for a peacefull holiday house with nice surroundings and friendly people and a really good bed - come here and try out.
