Peaceful Conleau Peninsula!

And here I am starting my blog in 2020 amazing to start to tell you if someone had told me would be here I probably would have said nahh but it all began in November 2010 and thanks to you all I still keep on ticking the wonderful world of travel and family life. Thanks again my dear readers and followers!

So , let me tell you a bit more on a wonderful quiet peaceful peninsula just off Vannes or rather part of it. The Conleau peninsula. We love it for just family good times.

Vannes

It is located at the south west of the city of Vannes at the end of the Gulf of Morbihan; it is a district of the city also call by the same name. Nowdays you find old mansions houses, whre the architecture its inspired of Swiss chalets. there is an open pool into the bay of sea water classify pavillon bleu or excellent for swimming. There is a good size children playground where local families bring their little ones for pass time and play, all bordering the gulf and its river Vincin. Large trees of shade and benches all over provides a nice rest area for a picnic or rest or just look at the sailboats in the marina and harbor out to sea!

Public transport from the Le Port area of Vannes takes you here in line 3 in 22 minutes and 2 euros. The official site for transports KICEO is here: Vannes bus network Kiceo

pdf line 3 Kiceo is here: Kiceo Vannes bus network line 3 to Conleau

Line 1 can do it too but more walking;  take it Le Port direction : Cliscouët – Cassard.

However, I do the run by car and its easy along the N165 to exit 779E follow signs for Le Port and on the last roundpoint, get right following ile Conleau sign, 20 mins and you are there off the freeway. Plenty of parking with meters by the resto or entrance to the Best Western hotel or free parking at the entrance to the islet along the river and bay road.

There is great views of the bay walking on a trail just from the open sea pool all around the building and housing complex, just great walks along the sea sublime!!

For eating, there is a nice restaurant inside the hotel Best Western at the tip of the islet or peninsula Conleau,the local name is Le Roof, at Best Western Le Roof restos cafe bar  for a formal dinng or the le Cafe Conleau for lighter fare, and also a bar area. Then for quaint, local and family warm go to my favorite there La Guinguette de Conleau , at 3 Allée Frères Cadoret  tel +33 (0) 2 97 26 25 68, you cant missed with its colorful design and the last before the hotel private entrance across from the port office and public bathrooms (for free!). You have the typical breton galettes and crepes plus seafood and steack platters, cider, wines,  liquors, beers ,coffees, teas and ice cream. Their Facebook page is here: Facebook on La Guinguette de Conleau
