Cycling Holidays in Brittany

 


 

Discover the beauty of Brittany in the northwest corner of France. This picturesque peninsula is surrounded by stunning wild bays, sandy inlets and awe inspiring rugged cliffs. Cycle around the Gulf, and visit the charming fishing ports of Saint Goustan, or Port Navalo, and the enigmatic megalithic complex of Carnac. However, there is much more to Brittany once you travel a little way inland.
 
Brittany’s most striking towns are the walled medieval citadelles that once guarded its borders with France, including Vannes, Dinan and St-Malo. Further west you’ll see vestiges of ancient forests, that survive around villages such as Huelgoat. You’ll find a cycling holiday in Brittany is just the thing to recharge your batteries.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Sarzeau

Discover this small village, beautifully located in the Rhuys peninsula, between the Morbihan Gulf and the Atlantic Ocean.

Day 2: Sarzeau - Arzon (35 km - 22 miles)

Travel south towards the imposing Château de Suscinio. This mediaeval Château de Suscinio, with its ocean views, built during the 13th and 15th centuries was the favourite home of the Brittany dukes. Then cycle to the Pointe St Jacques and the stunning St Gildas de Rhuys peninsula, with its 11th century church. Continue to the Gulf and the tiny fishing port Le Logeo before reaching Arzon.

Day 3: Arzon - Auray (40 km - 25 miles)

At Port Navalo, board the boat for Locmariaquer. Continue to La Trinité-sur-Mer, a charming fishing port and marina, before reaching the town of Carnac, world famous for its megalithic ruins and impressive history. Finally, on to Auray, an old harbour city tucked away on an picturesque inlet.

Day 4: Auray - Vannes (32 km - 20 miles)

Take a look around the charming mediaeval Port of St Goustan before starting your last bike stage in the heart of the Morbihan Gulf. Reach the picturesque ports of Le Bono and Larmor Baden (from where you walk along the sumptuous Berder Island) then to Arradon, a seaside resort known as the Morbihan Riviera, before reaching Vannes.
Vannes is a city well known for its ramparts and its charming marina. Discover the city "intra-muros" (inside the fortification) with its fantastically preserved half-timbered houses.
An extra night in Vannes is optional, enabling you to discover the peaceful nature of Arz Island and the fishermen island called ‘Ile aux Moines’.

Day 5: Vannes - Sarzeau (34 km / 21 miles)

For your last bike stage, leave Vannes and head for Le Hézo, small village settled along the Gulf, then on to Saint-Armel sitting amongst the salt marshes. Travel onwards to the Rhuys peninsula, before spending the night in Sarzeau.
