Immediate escapism...
Between beaches and megalithic sites

Carnac is a major draw with its five beautiful large fine sandy beaches facing south towards the islands of Houat and Belle-Ile-en-Mer and offering a lovely panorama of the Quiberon peninsula towards the west. Yet its incomparable charm also stems from its one-of-a-kind megalithic alignments, as enchanting as they are mysterious.

Morbihan boasts nearly 550 megalithic sites, yet the one in Carnac, with its 3000 menhirs over 7000 years old, stand today as the largest site of raised stones in the world. Your trip will undoubtedly be the perfect opportunity to discover the main sites of alignments in Carnac (Le Ménec, Kermario and Kerlescan) and to try and uncover their mystery!
