Vannes is the perfect destination for family holidays or with your partner.
Founded by the Romans in 56 BC, this charming, 2000 year old mediaeval town, which is listed as a "Ville d’Art et d’Histoire", is well-known for its historic and cultural heritage. Formerly home to the Dukes of Brittany, it has managed to retain all of its charm. On foot, as part of a guided tour, or on board its little train, come and see its splendid ramparts guarded by the Tour du Connétable, from which you'll be able to enjoy the most amazing views. The town's historic centre is a wonderful place for a stroll. Wander up and down its cobbled alleyways and see very charming, colourful, timber-framed houses, so typical of Brittany. While you're walking in the historic centre of Vannes, you'll also see various monuments, testament to its rich past, including the cathedral of Saint-Pierre, Porte Saint-Vincent, the Lavoir de la Garenne washhouse and the Château de l’Hermine.
And don't forget to come and see the town's emblem called "Vannes et sa femme", a granite sculpture featuring two painted busts of a cheerful and smiling man and woman, inlaid within the wall of a half- timbered house. And for people who prefer to manage by themselves, you can even use your Smartphone as a means of visiting Vannes! Download the Vannes Tour app and hear commentary about the monuments of the mediaeval town with three tourist circuits in the heart of the old town.
Bordered to the south by the Gulf of Morbihan, Vannes is also a seaward looking town, with its own 12,000 hectares of Atlantic ocean! During a cruise aboard a sailing boat, catamaran, or speedboat, this little inland sea with its 40 or so islands and islets is here to be discovered. Ile aux Moines and Ile d’Arz in the middle of the Gulf of Morbihan, or a little further out in Quiberon bay, Belle-Ile-en-Mer and Ile Houat & Hoëdic, are just some of the islands which you'll enjoy visiting, with their steep coastlines, their fine sand beaches and the wild little inlets!
And what if you want more? Then you should head inland, to the heart of the Argoat, where you'll discover megaliths, mansions and châteaux, as well as chapels and fountains.
