The Brittany region
Carnac is situated in the 56 Department of Morbihan - which has to be one of the most beautiful and diverse regions of France.
It has something for everyone from day trippers to walkers, cyclists to adventure lovers as well as some of the most breathtaking scenery you will see anywhere.It is steeped in history and foklore and a visit to the area is not complete without passing some of the world famous megalithic stones.
In the temperate south of Brittany, the Gulf of Morbihan has been described as one of the most beautiful bays in the world. From Locmariaquer and its ancient stones in the west, taking in the walled town of Vannes, on to the Rhuys Peninsula in the east, the gulf has something for all tastes. The most unusual feature of the gulf is its islands; there are around 42. Many are owned by celebrities but the two largest, Île aux Moines and Île d'Arz, are favourite tourist destinations in summer. The cross-shaped Île aux Moines offers scenic walks around its 4 miles (7km) coast while Arz has lovely creeks and coves to enjoy a dip. One of the most popular activities is to take a boat trip around the gulf from Vannes, however, many visitors take the boat from Larmor-Baden to see the island of Gavrinis, probably the most impressive megalithic site in Brittany, whose long stone passageway is adorned with carvings.
The Bretons are celtic by origin and have fought hard to maintain their cultural identity. Hard working folk, but are as welcoming as any you will meet on your travels. And if you love galettes, crepes and seafood, then you are definitely planning the right holiday!
Brittany teems with legends and mythical figures ; mischievous pixies, mermaids and giants pop up all over the place. In central Brittany, Arthurian figures get tangled in moral knots. In the southwest, accursed Tristan, Ysolde and Marc linger, while Gradlon's daughter falls for the devil. Across Brittany, tales of Breton saints colour the imagination, and l'Ankou, the Breton Grim Reaper, stalks the land.
With its lilting rhythms and piercing cries, Breton music is as distinctive as anything else in the region. The biniou, or Breton bagpipes, and the bombarde, the Breton oboe, are the two most iconic instruments in any Breton band, although the harp, accordion, violin and drums can also play major parts. After a lull in the early 20th century, Breton music took off again post-war and is now very popular
For visitors, Breton traditional dancing at summer festivals looks wonderfully picturesque and quaint, especially performed in old-fashioned costumes. But for many Bretons, the regional dances are an ordinary part of life they relish, and that they don't need to get dressed up for. The fest noz, or evening dance, is a Breton institution – be bold, and join in one if you get the chance!
Wonderful and lively open markets are plentiful accoss the region - Carnac has one on Wednsday and Sunday and also a night market on Thursday evenings between 18.00 and around 23.00 which allows tourists and locals to purchase locally made products.
Carnac Stones: The world famous Carnac Stones are a huge tourist attraction, with visitors coming from all over the world.The stones are an exceptionally dense collection of megalithic sites around the area, consisting of alignments, dolmens, tumuli and single menhirs. More than 3,000 prehistoric standing stones were hewn from local rock and erected by the pre-Celtic people of Brittany, and are the largest such collection in the world.
The very impressive Carnac Stones Museum is well worth a visit and guided tours can also be arranged.
Beautiful beaches: Carnac's south facing beaches are all sheltered, benefiting from the areas micro-climate.They are rightly recognized as some of the best beaches in France and any are well worth a visit. From the very busy Grand Plage round to the more secluded northern end of Saint Colomban, there is something to offer everyone.
La Grande Plage.
Slightly further afield there are some beautiful sandy beaches towards both Quiberon to the west and Loqmariaquer to the east.
A huge range of other outdoor and indoor activities including tennis, swimming, Go karts, Quad bikes, Forest of Adreniline,indoor bowling and lots of local public festivities in the summer.
