Just a cross the English Channel and increasingly accessible, there is another world, full of secret delights. Its pleasures are a constant temptation to the senses, a world full of space, light and colour to be enjoyed in haste or at leisure and made memorable by itís contrasts.
Morbihan is a Breton word and means little sea, it has many white sandy beaches, you could easily spend two weeks going to a different beach everyday. and quaint fishing villages dot the coastline of the Morbihan gulf, this wonderful ëLittle Seaí of Brittany is a maze of sandbanks and green islands, flooded twice a day by the Atlantic.
Its shores host the historic towns of Vannes and Auray, the standing stones at Carnac and the long Quiberon Peninsular with its dramatic Cote Savage. This great tidal gulf, crammed with islands is a paradise waiting to be explored.
