HOUAT AND HŒDIC
These islands are home to a meer 335 and 113 respective people, making them a wonderful place to drop anchor in the summer. Here we can swim, enjoy the sandy beaches and explore the quaint villages.
Brittany's biggest island is the perfect place to drop anchor and relax. Listen to the birds sing and the waves crash while you lie on the deck. Then head ashore to walk the coastline and take in the scenery. Maybe stop for a crepe on your way back to the boat!
Keep a look out for dolphins on the way to Le Palais. Then moor so you can go ashore and explore the citadel and fishing village nearby. Enjoy the beautiful view of the port or the sea if you choose to grab dinner on land.
Take in your surroundings as you sail up the Auray. Trees, beaches, houses, fields and many sailboats line the river on both sides. Enjoy a delicious French lunch in Bono town then sail down to a quiet island in the Morbihan archipelago.
Sailing around here requires us to pay attention to the tides so we can reach a lock that brings us in to Vannes. Go for an afternoon stroll on land and discover the charm of this Medieval stronghold city.
Here we can explore the island's ancient tomb, known for its megalithic art. Then we will cruise back to our marina for our last dinner together, recounting our favorite memories from the trip.
