The Rhuys, and the Ports Crouesty and Navalo

Today amazing was an extremely hot day, and very bright sun. Therefore, we went out ,and decide to come back to the Rhuys peninsula.

Quickly places to see here are many but my favorites are  the lighthouse tower at  Port-Navalo , and the tumulus cairns of Petit Mont in Port Crouesty.  The trio of towns to see at the very end of the peninsula are Arzon – Port Crouesty – Port Navalo; all wonderful. If you want to know more ,this is the tourist site for the area and more.

You have gorgeous photos at the Arzon site, part of Port Crouesty, the tourist site that is,  as well at Port Crouesty itself here

Plenty of information at the Gulf of Morbihan or Golfe du Morbihan site for these communities,

You will be in another paradise locations in the department of Morbihan, my dept now.No 56, part of the region of Brittany or Bretagne or in Breton,BREIZH.

Its a boaters paradise, with wonderful beaches, great monument such as the petit mont megaliths stones, nice Abbis velo tandem bikes rides, webpage at ,  and petit train or little train rides with info in English at the tourist office site The commercial center of Port Crouesty is full of shops and restos, including the wonderful ice cream place L’Iceberg right in the esplanade with tourist office webpage at

You ,also, can get boat rides especially nice is the Betelgeuse sail boat ride, more info here in tourist office webpage  this is a great ride to see the outlaying islands and the sea life of the area. The official webpage is at

The Miramar Crouesty Thalasso and Spa is a wonderful oasis of tranquility and well being, that we just went for information as we like them,and will be back in mass especially in the winter time.  Tourist office info for them is here—Thalasso—Spa_c238105.aspx  ;and official webpage is here

You should not leave the area without visiting the Cairns du Petit Mont, or the megaliths stones tumulus found here dating thousands of years, and it has free parking and a nice museum boutique before getting to the stones. The official tourist office has some information here  Sagemor the port authority folks in French but has some wonderful pictures showing the site from above, wonderful sights

One of the nicest ride to the outlaying islands in the gulf all over here is the NAVIX passenger boat company, webpage here ;and tourist office info in English here

Then for breton goodies, come to my favorite store all over this area for that, La Trinitaine, it has an outlet here as shown in the tourist office,—Les-Saveurs-de-Bretagne_c238419.aspx   and of course their official site is here

The beaches are on the ocean side and named  Kervert, Kerjouanno, du Fogeo ;and the Grande Plage de Port-Navalo ; which is ,also, the best.

How to get here, well the car is king, and best always, in my opinion. You take the expressway N165 along the Nantes Brest axis, and get off at exit or sortie Sarzeau, Rhuys on the road D780. there is a bus service  TIM bus line 7 from the gare de Vannes, schedules  You ,also, have taxi services such as  Rhuys Taxis  + 33 (0)2 97 53 81 95, and  Crouesty Taxis + 33 (0)2 97 53 94 06. The train station is at Vannes, and you connect either with a bus or taxi as above or a rental car.The closest airport is that of Nantes-Atlantique : + 33 (0)2 40 84 80 00, but the transportation to get to the area is with bus to train at Vannes or taxi, too far. Best to get here is the rental car, Avis or Hertz have counters at the train station and airport.

Hope you enjoy the area,  Cheers.
