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.

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.

Mr Buffe has been very helpful and dealt with any of my queries with in a few hours. The property is in excellent repair and decor. The property is great for walking in to the main town with everything you need on the doorstep. The terraces provided peace and quiet to sit and read if we did not feel like venturing out. The parking provided additional peace of mind especially as we had arrived by motorbike. The property is well furnished with comfortable beds and the facilities in the apartment were second to none. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for an up market holiday accommodation in a quiet area. The TV does not have English TV channels and so make sure you take some decent books to read or some music to play. Thank you once again for the superb rental. Regards, Kim Sharp, John Andrews (UK)

Secure off road car parking. Best restaurant in the town (Table d'O) just up the road. What more could one ask for re location. The house itself is comfortable and spacious - loved the en-suite bath on the top floor! Property beautifully maintained while keeping the old world charm and spotlessly clean. Second time we had holidayed in Josselin and certainly won't be the last. Would definitely recommend this. We aim to be back maybe next year and this house top of the list!

                                                                                        "Pampered" isn't usually the word I would use to describe a self-catering holiday. However, La Chaumiere is comfortable, beautiful and relaxing. It is completely furnished with everything a guest could think of - I could have easily stayed there for months and months without missing my own kitchen items - it is that complete and everything was of the highest quality. (Amazing!!) The surroundings are calm and beautiful. My greatest pleasure was waking up before anyone else and taking my coffee outside, walking around the extensive grounds and enjoying all the beautiful spring flowers. Since spring was late this year, we were able to see blue bells, lilies of the valley, azaleas, and lilacs in bloom. Huge roses twine up the sides of the house and they opened during our two week stay. When we left, the fruit trees were just starting to blossom. Day after day, something new and beautiful appeared in the garden. Numerous birds sang and of course, there was the ubiquitous cuckoo (not so beautiful in speech, but familiar just the same). I choose this cottage because it had a ground floor bedroom and bathroom, which was needed for my 87 year old mother. That worked out perfectly for us. The attention to the smallest detail, including the organization of tourist information, was outstanding. (Need a tissue? Tricia had a box in most every room - incredible!) Mattresses were perfect, the linens top notch and the duvets were cozy. The house and grounds are kept to an exacting standard. Tricia and Neil, your hosts, were ready and eager to help with any tiny thing that could make the stay even better. We also greatly enjoyed the option of having several meals catered by Connie. If you order from her European menu, do get a dessert - heavenly!! I cannot overstate what a wonderful holiday home this is. The only drawback is one does eventually have to leave. I could have happily stayed for much longer, enjoying the company of Tricia and Neil (who live close by - attentive, yet unobtrusive - terrific people!) and the countryside peace and quiet.
