Brittany is rightly famous for its splendid selection of beaches. The Brittany peninsula is surrounded by water on three sides and the result is a huge variety of beach environments.The nearest sea beach to the cottage is at Carnac. This is a safe family friendly beach much loved by visitors to Brittany. There are also some excellent beaches on both sides of the Quiberon Peninsula, the ones on the western side are particularly spectacular and much loved by windsurfers. There are also some smaller and generally quieter beaches at Damgan and St Gildas, to the south of Vannes. Further afield are the fashionable beaches at La Boule and Concarneau.
The nearest beach to the cottage is at the southern end of Lac au Duc, the largest natural freshwater lake in Brittany. Lac au Duc is close to Ploermel and only a 20 minute drive from the cottage. It has a nice sandy beach and with added water sports facilities including canooing.
There is a water sports facility in Vannes, Van Ocean, which has proved especially popular with our visitors.
