Peninsula of Conleau, Vannes

Well its time so much to see and not posting since november 2011 on conleau the peninsula off Vannes. This is ideal for families,barbecue, and just soak in the tranquil life away from the city and crowds.

We had family visitors from the nord ,but they are off to the interceltique festival in Lorient, and we done that so we went to the Conleau for a relaxing moment of our own.

The Conleau peninsula is a former island of the Gulf of Morbihan, connected to the Mainland by a dike road from 1879. Of modest dimensions (about 500 meters in length for an average width of 100 m, it lies at the confluence of the rivers Vincin and Marle, the two main streams of Vannes. The peninsula is separated from the municipality of Arradon by the Vincin and the municipality of Séné by the Marle.  In 1878 the résidents decided to give a different look at the area so they created  a pool of seawater surrounded by cabins of bath, chalets, a restaurant and a grand hotel (now Best Western Le Roof). As early as 1879, a dike-road connects the island to the Mainland, promoting the development of the small seaside resort.
The colorful Guinguette créperie, the Corlazo cafe facing the pool and the cafe de conleau as well as restaurant le Roof in the Best Western hotel provides all the eating/drinking you need. There are public bathroom and change rooms available.  More info from the tourist office of Vannes, http://en.tourisme-vannes.com/search/node/conleau
