The Gulf of Morbihan: a marine world

Our guest house, ideally located at the entrance to the Gulf of Morbihan, allows you to discover the “small sea” (Mor bihan in Breton) by taking a shuttle from the port of Baden a few minutes away.

The Gulf of Morbihan: a small inland sea classified as a Regional Natural Park

The Gulf of Morbihan is a unique marine environment of about 100 km², with more than fifty islands to discover along the water.

Among the most famous, Île-aux-Moines, Île d’Arz and Île de Berder are waiting for you to discover their many facets.

Some have hidden treasures such as Gavrinis and its majestic cairn, or Er Lannic and its megalithic remains that are revealed through the tides.
You can also get away from the tumultuous current of the Jument and go up the calm Auray river, stop at the village of Le Bono, famous for its Forban and its suspension bridge.

You can then dock in the charming little port of Saint-Goustan, discover its art galleries and stroll through the historic streets of Auray.

Discover the coast and the islands of Morbihan

Further offshore, facing the Gulf of Morbihan, once past the Pointe de Kerpenhir, Port-Navalo and Méaban, Belle-Île-en-Mer and the islands of Houat and Hoëdic await you.
Less than an hour’s sailing time away, these three very different islands offer you a wide array of beautiful day trips.

Belle-Île-en-Mer, by far the largest, will offer you the sumptuous landscapes of its wild coast and the Pointe des Poulains, the charm of its ports of Sauzon and the Palais. The Island of Houat will seduce you with its tranquility and its superb emerald-colored beach and the even smaller Island of Hoëdic, with its wild moorland, and tiny village with its small houses.

 

From La Villa du Guern, you can explore other exceptional sites in Morbihan nearby.

The Quiberon peninsula, a popular seaside resort, offers a wide variety of landscapes over 14 kilometers: to the west its superb wild coast where you can walk along the moorland, to the south the Pointe du Conguel whose path will lead you to beautiful views of the lighthouse of La Teignouse, and to the east its beautiful beaches of fine sand.

Carnac, another very lively seaside resort in summer, offers a long beach of fine sand overlooking the magnificent Bay of Quiberon. Finally, perhaps you can admire the Formulas 1 of the Seas, these oversized sailing boats that train for ocean racing, at La Trinité-sur-Mer, a major sailing center in France.

From La Villa du Guern, you can also discover the Ria d’Etel: visit the Island of Saint-Cado and its charming 12th century chapel, walk along the moorland to the barre of Etel, this sandbank in perpetual movement at the entrance of the Ria, or hike on its coastal paths like the Cadoudal path at Locoal-Mendon.

Finally, you can also board the boat for Groix Island, with its exceptional and unusual convex beach of Les Grands Sables.
