Easter holidays in Morbihan

Quiberon Bretagne

The Easter hoelidays are just around the corner and you don’t know where to go to enjoy it? Why not go to Brittany for a few days? Head to Morbihan to discover its wild coast, its postcard seashores and its charming towns. There are dozens of seasonal rentals ranging from gîtes to guest houses to welcome you during your getaway, we take you there!

Walking on the tip of Quiberon

The Pointe de Quiberon is the spot loved by Breton surfers. Its cliffs, its wild coast and its magnificent beaches make this place a must-see place in the Gulf of Morbihan. If you like long walks to enjoy its coastal paths surrounded by cliffs as far as the eye can see, this is surely the place to put your suitcases down.

One of our favorite places on the peninsula is the Pointe de Percho. Located in the heart of the wild coast, this part of Quiberon is breathtaking. Go there at the end of the day to enjoy the sunset and its magnificent spectacle of waves hitting the cliffs.

What if you did like the people of Quiberon? Put on a wetsuit and set off to conquer the waves of Plouharnel! No need to be a professional! Beginner classes are scheduled every day.

Another destination not to be missed: Carnac. It is over 4 km that stand thousands of stones dating back nearly 6,000 years that still arouse admiration today. The alignments of menhirs in Carnac are astonishing and we have not yet cleared up all their secrets. It’s better to come and see them for yourself and try to unravel the mystery of these world-famous menhirs!

Discover Belle-Île

Belle-île Bretagne








It lives up to its name so well. Belle-Île, also known as the aptly named, is the perfect destination for a long weekend with a change of scenery. Between a historical walk, an afternoon on its fine sandy beaches or the discovery of its picturesque villages, you won’t be bored!

The first thing you see when you arrive on the island by boat is the Vauban citadel of the Palace. A grandiose place full of history that you can visit. The small marina is charming. What could be better than waking up to the sound of seagulls and having breakfast in front of the port dreaming of a boat trip?

Everyone knows that there is a microclimate in Belle-Île. The weather is often fine and the sun regularly comes out. There are so many beautiful beaches (more than sixty!) that it would be a shame not to take advantage of them. The choice can be difficult. Here are our 3 favorites.

  • The Donner beach for lovers of board sports (positive point: it is supervised)
  • The beach of Port Puce for its turquoise water
  • The beach of Port Andro for its swimming sheltered from the wind!

The second largest municipality on the island, Sauzon has it all. A small marina, restaurants with a warm atmosphere and typical surroundings such as the menhirs of Jean and Jeanne. One of the places on the island not to be missed!

Soak up the sun in Lorient and its surroundings

Plage du Fort Bloqué Bretagne









What if your Easter holidays rhymed with cultural and sporting excursions?

The large beach of Fort Bloque, not far from Lorient, is ideal for fishing on foot or longe-côte. This aquatic walk is very widespread, can be practiced all year round (in a wetsuit when the temperatures are too cold) and allows for gentle muscle strengthening. A perfect setting to practice this sporting activity!

In Lorient, 2 visits are a must with the family, the visit of the Keroman submarine base which was designed to house about thirty submarines during the 2nd World War. The museum and the visit of the submarine “FLORE” retrace this important place of our history. Also discover the Cité de la Voile in tribute to Eric Tabarly, where young and old alike will find very fun activities.

Once in Lorient, you can take the opportunity to take the boat to the island of Groix. After a 45-minute crossing, set off to discover this lush nature and its famous bird reserve!

And why not choose for a holiday in the countryside? Brittany is not limited to its coasts. Its abundant nature, in the heart of the land, deserves a visit. Put on your hiking boots, we look forward to seeing you in the Landes de Lanvaux!
