The Rhuys peninsula,and the Ports Crouesty ,et Navalo!!!

Again coming back at you in my new version black and white updated old posts from my library in my blog. So many realise did a lousy job at the beginning lol! I need to do better now and will update, revise and change these posts to current events! Hope you are keeping up with me, thanks!

I , of course, have written plenty on them but like to keep the history with updated info, just me… 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. 

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 direction Nantes, and get off at exit or sortie Sarzeau, Rhuys on the road D780. There is,also, a bus service Kiceo line 24 from the Place de la Liberation of Vannes. Schedule here for reference,never taken it.

You ,also, have taxi services such as  Rhuys Taxis  web:   Crouesty Taxis web:

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 but the transportation to get to the area is with bus / train to Vannes. Best to get here is the rental car, Avis or Hertz have counters at the train station and airport

Its a boaters paradise, with wonderful beaches, great monument such as the petit mont megaliths stones, nice Abbis velo tandem bikes rides,which my boys really enjoyed pedaling from Crouesty to Navalo! More info here:

And the petit train or little train rides here is nice to ride amongst the boats and go into Arzon and into the hill where the stone Petit Mont is located, nice indeed. More info here:

The commercial center of Port Crouesty is full of shops and restos, including the wonderful ice cream place L’Iceberg which taken over by the other chain we love too elsewhere and now here L’Igloo right in the esplanade. Many family memories here making the line for our huge ice cream cones!

We did get boat rides especially nice and historical such as the Betelgeuse sail boat ride, the first sail boat to go around the world, and now no longer there but in my beloved Le Port marina area of Vannes! See the history, figures and photos of this magnificent boat here:

The Miramar Crouesty Thalasso and Spa (now its call the Miramar La Cigale) is a wonderful oasis of tranquility and well being, that we just went for information as we like them, and thanks to a special price from my job we tried well my wife did. More info 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. More info here:

One of the nicest ride from Port Navalo to the outlaying islands in the gulf all over here is the NAVIX passenger boat company. More info here:

Then for breton goodies, come to my favorite store all over this area for that, La Trinitaine, it has an outlet at port du Crouesty :

The beaches are on the ocean side and named  KervertKerjouanno, du Fogeo ;and the Grande Plage de Port-Navalo ; which is ,also, the best. I have plenty of posts on all the above.

There you go folks, this area has plenty of posts in my blog and photos, but what I tell you is not enough, this heaven and you should see for yourselves as soon as you can. Hope it helps your future visit.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
