The prettiest and most atmospheric part of the old town is Place du Marchix, which is lined with half-timbered houses

Portouais Beach in Erquy is one of the wild beaches in the Cape of Erquy, shorter than its neighbour on the right, Guen/Lanruen Beach, a little more accessible than its neighbour on the left, Lourtouais Beach. The natural environment is guaranteed: pines, ferns, heath, and dunes are more beautiful than the last. One often has the feeling of being alone in the world. The small car park is not nearby; one has to walk a little. But the valley leading to the beach is also a sight for sore eyes

Everything Else
The walled town of Vannes is without doubt one of Brittany’s most attractive sights and a must-visit on any trip to the Gulf of Morbihan. Wander around the well-preserved medieval streets before enjoying a harbour-side lunch then taking a boat trip around the gulf. Kids will love the aquarium and butterflies.The main gate into Vannes is the Porte St-Vincent Ferrier, named after the Spanish monk who died in the town in 1419 and became its patron saint; he is buried in St-Pierre cathedral. To the left and right of the gate are town houses: many of their ground floors have been turned into cafes and make a lovely location for lunch as they face the marina.
