The megaliths are divided into three clusters: Kerlescan, Menec and Kermario. Originally there were around 3000 of them, measuring up to 50 metres. The whole complex is stretched over 8 km from Crac'h Ria to Plouharnel.

The world of birds on du Morbihan bay
Here gusts of our villas in Brittany may be able to observe rare species of swamp birds. Ideal places for observation are especially designated spots in the Centre nature“. The Centre is open from February to September and is well worth a visit on your trip.
The flows and ebbs regulate the time of swimming. In June the temperature of water is between 16 and 18 degrees, in August it reaches 20 degrees. In sheltered bays the water might be even warmer. Considering the time of the flows and ebbs it is best to swim on a guarded beach. Flags in different colours warn about dangers. A red flag prohibits swimming when lifeguards are not present, a yellow flag means that a lifeguard is present on the beach, but warns about dangers connected with wind or sea currents. A green flag means that it is safe to swim and that a lifeguard is present.
We wish you an interesting and pleasant holiday in one of our holiday homes, apartments or gites in Brittany.
