Megaliths are numerous in Morbihan, surrounded by mysteries and myths. The Carnac site is extraordinary, due to the number of menhirs (giant standing stones): it owns, i.e. 4000 menhirs spread across 4 kilometres! Its giant Manio, a very tall menhir, stands proudly on its 6 meters of height. The Monteneuf site also includes 420 blocks on 7 hectares.
The Brocéliande forest will tell you its stories through beautiful walks during which many places such as the Val Sans Détour, the Fountain of Youth or the Cross of the 7 Wolves will make you admire the place.
Morbihan also has a rich and preserved natural heritage. The Scorff Valley promises 400km of circuits and trails, a popular destination for outdoor walks and camping fans who love hiking.
The Gulf of Morbihan is a true unavoidable sighting, rich in small islands, with breathtaking beauty. Salt marshes and oyster beds can be observed. The Rhuys peninsula also offers beautiful landscapes, small coves and beautiful beaches.
The historical buildings to visit follow one another in Morbihan, with the medieval castle of Suscino (formerly frequented by the Dukes of Brittany), as well as the castle of Comper or the one of Les Rohan.
In Le Faouet, the Chapelle du Fiacre is to be seen in this beautiful village, especially for its stained glass windows and its flamboyant Gothic style.
Lighthouses and beacons are also an integral part of the Morbihan heritage, with among others the large Kervilahouen lighthouse located on Belle-Ile or the Pen Men lighthouse located on Grois Island.
In Morbihan, there are many towns and villages to discover.
The main city of the department, Vannes, has many half-timbered houses, which gives it an authentic city image. Its Saint-Pierre cathedral or its Fine Arts Museum La Cohue are worth a visit.
Auray has beautiful historic districts, with its Saint-Goustan district where you can admire period houses.
Lorient, on the other hand, has no real historical heritage, which was partly destroyed during the 2nd World War. However, the city has a large number of green spaces, including the 10 hectare large Bois du Château park.
Morbihan's warmer and more pleasant months in terms of weather and temperatures go from July until October. If you don't like like the cold, avoid the month of February as it is usually the coldest month of the year. However, we would advise vanlife enthusiasts to choose the months of May and June, as there will be less tourists to bother you during your stay!
