The Brittany region
Sarzeau lies on the enchanting peninsula of Rhuys in the heart of South ern Brittany. This vast stretch of land is ideally located on the edge of the peaceful Gulf of Morbihan to the North and the invigorating Atlantic Ocean to the South - “Mor Bihan” means “ Little Sea” in Breton. The Little Sea embraces dozens of small islands and is considered as one of the most beautiful bays in the world. To the south, the coast is dotted with sandy beaches and small rocky headlands. On the Peninsula, you are always within a short distance of the sea and nature . Sarzeau relies on the sea and notably on oyster farming. The people of Sarzeau enjoy living close to the sea. The sea has helped to forge their personality as their Breton cultural heritage has done too - visitors can spot the town’s Breton name when entering the commune’s territory: that is Sarhaù! So – “ Welcome to Sarhaù !”
Sarzeau for Nature lovers, there are a vast number of coastal paths where you can cycle or walk along the Gulf on the old Customs path s , and eventually reach the bird sanctuary / nature reserve at Le Duer !
Sarzeau for the curious ones, there is the Breton touch all along the Oyster Route that leads to the romantic crenellations of the moated and turreted castle of Suscinio. An impressive 13 th century castle with a wealth of history and standing just a mere few yards from the sea.
Sarzeau for water sports lovers, offers many different kinds of nautical and seaside activities. There is something for everyone and you can discover the tiny coves and creeks along the Gulf or the coast at the same time .
The commune of Sarzeau comprises of a bustling market town and engaging quiet hamlets on the coast and the Gulf with haunting land and seascapes ; it has a considerable historical heritage and offers plenty of entertainment and festivities.
Created at the end of a ria (drowned river valley), the medieval town of Vannes owes the foundations of its fortified town to the Romans. At the end of the 14th century, the town became one of the favourite residences of the dukes of Brittany. The enclosed area was extended towards the port and doubled the size of the walled town.
Within the walls, numerous wooden beamed houses dotted the narrow streets surrounding the cathedral, which was rebuilt at the beginning of the 15th century. This “ville de bois” (town of wood) was completed by a “ville de pierre” (town of stone) in the classic style. Maritime trade was at its peak; the port was developed with new quays.
But maritime activity came to an end during the 19th century. Starting in the 1860s and 1870s, the Morbihan prefecture created new public buildings and saw an increase in activity with the arrival of the railway and the stationing of two regiments.
St Colombier centre (1km) has a bar, creperie, restaurant and Tourist Information Office. Details of various boat trips, cycle hire, local walks and cycle routes, some of which pass through St Colombier, can be found here. Cycle hire can also normally be arranged in peak season.
