The Quiberon peninsula

Only twenty kilometers apart, Carnac and Quiberon are two pearls of southern Brittany. One is famous for its alignments and beaches, the other for its extraordinary wild coast and its "end of the world" air.

Take advantage of your stay in our hotel to discover the Quiberon peninsula, which stretches 14 kilometers into the Atlantic. At the end, the town of Quiberon is a renowned seaside resort which has a lot to offer ... Nature, cultural heritage, sandy beaches and entertainment: there is something for all tastes and all ages!

A day at the end of the world

It is possible to spend the day in Quiberon by staying at the Hotel Le Celtique. The peninsula is easily accessible by road or even by boat.

The seaside resort of Quiberon, in the south of the peninsula, enjoys an exceptional location facing the Atlantic. At the entrance to the bay, the port has retained all of its charm. You can still see its emblematic lighthouse built in 1856 and its keepers' house which now hosts exhibitions. The center of Quiberon is a ten-minute walk away.

To stroll, stock up on souvenirs to bring back in your suitcases or enjoy an ice cream with your feet in the sand, towards the Grande Plage, lined with shops and restaurants.

On the east coast of the peninsula, discover other magnificent beaches sheltered from the wind. On the west coast, the "Côte Sauvage" offers breathtaking landscapes, between dunes and cliffs, dominated by the Goalennec menhir. Be sure to admire a superb sunset there before your return to the hotel! Château Turpault, an Anglo-medieval-style manor house located on the Pointe de Beg er Lann (or Pointe de la Lande), marks the start of this scenic route.

Finally, the picturesque villages of Kermorvan or Saint-Julien represent beautiful points of departure for your hikes or bike rides.

In the extreme south of Quiberon, the Pointe du Conguel is a veritable corner of Breton paradise. The large stone slabs found there are the remains of seaweed ovens where the algae from the soda factories burned.

Getting to Quiberon from the hotel

The peninsula remains accessible even without a car. From the center of Carnac, where the hotel Le Celtique is located, board the line 1 bus to go to Quiberon. In summer, avoid traffic jams by boarding the Tire-Bouchon, a tourist train that runs between Auray and Quiberon.

Do not forget to rent a bike or a car to get around more easily.
