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.

Things to do on holiday in Morbihan

Morbihan has a long and fascinating history. The megalithic site of Carnac is celebrated as one of the finest, and is thought to date back as far as 5000BC. There are also castles from the Hundred Years War at Josselin and Pontivy, and the World War II submarine pens in Lorient, which have been magnificently preserved.

There is a rich golfing heritage here too. The golf course at Golf de Baden is considered one of the toughest in the area, but there are plenty of courses to suit every player, and within easy access of French gites 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.

There was plenty of communication between the owner and I which was honest, prompt and extremely helpful. The appartment was immaculate throughout. It catered for our ever need from location only 5/10 minute walk to town to every detail within the appartment. The beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom great size especially if you have little ones as it has a bath and a super shower with plenty of pressure! These are the little things which we have struggled to find on previous trips to France. We genuinely could not fault it. Our daughter nearly 4 years woke up here on Christmas Day and it really was magical. All the rooms were spacious, airy but with a lovely home feeling that is hard to find in a holiday home but we still felt it on Christmas Day. Aimé was a truly fabulous host being considerate from the start of my enquiry to when we returned home. Very much wanting to please and make sure we were happy at all times. My father lives about 5 minute drive and so it will definitely not be our last visit. We have found our french holiday home and can't wait to go back.

The cottage was very comfortable and the owners very pleasant and helpful. It was a good base to tour the area with plenty of interesting places to visit and not far from the sea. Ideal as long as you had your own transport!

It was very clean, with a beautiful kitchen, and bathroom. We would certainly go again, and recomend it to anyone. It was one of our best Stays. Auray is a great place. The port with all the Restaurants and Artists. The town its self, with the fish market, open everyday, and a great market by the church, Monday and Friday. Good shopping, and plenty of places to visit, not to far away, including Vannes Port, market day Wednesday, and Point Avon only a short drive, also Trinity le Mer, for boat Enthusiast.
