Les Myrtes Holiday Cottage in Southern Brittany

Southern Brittany

In Brittany you are never far from the sea, hence it has a remarkably mild climate; Les Myrtes is an ideal holiday destination all year round.

From Mont-Saint-Michel right down to Penestin, the coastline has magnificent shores that are much appreciated by walkers and local wildlife, and there is an infinite variety of coastal paths from north to south.  Sandy beaches contrast with jagged cliffs and wild rias.

Southern Brittany is an enchanting region anytime of the year for walking, cycling, fishing, relaxing or exploring. 

The beautiful inland sea of the Golf of Morbihan with its pretty bays, enormous choice of lovely beaches and many places of  interest, including the medieval towns of Vannes and Auray, are all within easy reach of Les Myrtes.

As well as a lovely beach, Carnac with its prehistoric stones, has one of Europe’s most important, ancient and mysterious archaeological sites - hundreds of massive standing stones, older than Stonehenge or the pyramids of Egypt, are aligned in rows in a field.

Not far away, Brocéliande is the mythical name of the present day Forest of Paimpont   located in the heart of Brittany. It is the source of many Celtic legends: Merlin and Viviane, King Arthur and his Knights in search of the Holy Grail.

The medieval riverside town of Malestroit is only a few minutes drive from Les Myrtes, Rochefort-en-Terre with its chateau and medieval church is only a few kilometres away.

At Carrentoir there is lake with a beach where you can hire pedalos. There are also adventure and animal parks in the area.

Close by are St. Marcel with its Museum of Resistance, Questembert's covered market and the old town of Ploermel with the Lac au Duc offering swimming, water sports, trampolining and a 9-hole golf course, with go-karting available in nearby Guillac.

The impressive chateau at Josselin and the medieval walled city of Vannes, with its up market shops and port, are within easy reach.
