“The Golfe de Morbihan (The Gulf of Morbihan) is a natural harbour in the south of Morbihan, Brittany, the Breton name 'Ar Mor Bihan' (the little sea) aptly desribes this beautiful location. The gulf contains about 40 islands, depending on the tide, many being privately owned except for two, Île-aux-Moines (Island of the Monks) which can be reached via ferry from Lamor Baden and Île-d'arz by ferry from Vannes. The small uninhabited island of Gavrinis, which has an ancient buriel chamber from around 3500BC can be reached by ferry from Lamor-Baden. The Golfe de Morbihan has a beautiful rocky landscape and is a regional natural park of marshes, flora and fauna and is well worth a visit.”

“Paysage unique et envoûtant, les marais salants sont une mosaïque de formes et de couleurs … Gris clair le matin, blanc lumineux au zénith, violet au coucher du soleil. C’est une surprise, de saison en saison. C’est un espace de 2 000 hectares de marais, cultivés et non cultivés, répartis en deux zones : Les marais salants de Guérande, autour du Traict du Croisic, de 1 650 hectares, sur les communes de Batz-sur-Mer, Guérande et La Turballe. Les marais salants du Mès, au-delà du coteau guérandais, couvrent 350 hectares sur les communes de Mesquer-Quimiac, Saint-Molf et Assérac. Cette zone est alimentée en eau par le Traict de Mesquer. De plus, cette zone humide dispose de nombreuses protections réglementaires ou reconnaissances internationales pour sa valeur écologique. Avec un guide naturaliste ou seul, muni de vos jumelles, vous pourrez observer et écouter l’avocette élégante, l’échasse blanche, le chevalier gambette, le héron cendré, l’aigrette garzette et autres limicoles.”

Harbour / Marina
“Auray is a pretty town of tow halves on an estuary of the Golfe de Morbihan east of Vannes. In medieval times the top half of Auray had a castle which existed up until the 16th century but still has some historical sites such as the Renaissance style entrance to the Church of Saint Gildas with its 17th century altarpiece. The Town Hall has an imposing 18th century belltower and 2 small chapel. The tourist office itself stands behind a 17th century facade of a small chapel. The Port of Auray, SAINT GOUSTAN, is on the lower level beside the estuary, and can be reached by foot, or by car down some fairly narrow streets. Saint Goustan is a beautiful little port of cobbles and half timbered houses and restaurants, and has an air of contented relaxation.”
