Welcome back to Plouhinec!

And here I go out again, going out to defy the times of our lives! We drove and walk, and saw nothing else with most places to eat etc closed. However, we did went out and it was wonderful to see these familiar places again. This is a memorable town for us, just read my blog on Plouhinec! We came back together with mom missing therefore, sentimental. All seems to be nowdays.

This is a place that first was found in my road warrior trips in the area , and we have come back for its natural beauty in nice Plouhinec . This is another jewel that is nice for a day with the family and only about 40 minutes from my house.

The town is situated between the Ria of Étel in the east for 17 km and the small Sea of Gâvres  on 5 km to the west. To the south the 8 km of beach overlooking the ocean are part of the largest dune of Brittany which extends from the Pointe de Gâvres to the Fort of Penthièvre on the town of Saint-Pierre-Quiberon (part of the wild coast of Quiberon) .Plouhinec is located 15 km from Lorient, 35 km from Vannes , the capital of the Morbihan region, and 147 km from Rennes, the capital of Brittany. Access is via the D158 road to the Gâvres Peninsula (see post).

We saw again the nice Church of Notre-Dame de Grâce or Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul built from 1870 to 1873. It is an imposing building of néo gothic style where the high silhouette dominates the houses of the village. See my post on it.

The Plage de Lînes or Linès beach is one of the best beaches of Plouhinec,if not the best me think. It is part of the great Dune site which goes from Gâvres to Quiberon. This was now and it is heavens in Summer time.
