Conleau Peninsula of Vannes!

So let me bring out to another peninsula near me. This is more urban but a nice harbor ,pool and walks for our dog and is in Vannes! Another spot where I have written bits and pieces in my other blog posts but never one dedicated to it. This is another idylic spot down tuck in a corner of the Gulf of Morbihan, in the Conleau peninsula of Vannes!


Conleau is one of the neighborhoods of the city of Vannes. It includes the Conleau peninsula. It is located south of Kercado and Cliscouët neighborhoods. It comprises a built-up area, consisting of detached houses and some collective dwellings, as well as an unbuilt area, the pointe des Émigrés (emigrants point)  and the Parc du Golfe (Gulf park), really at the entrance but not in the peninsula per se me think. The area was created during the 20C from two former hamlets named the Petit Conleau and the Grand Conleau, each composed of a Manor and farmhouses. One of these farms now houses the Maison de la Nature (nature house).

The Conleau peninsula  is an ideal spot for families,barbecue, and just soak in the tranquil life away from the city and crowds. The Conleau peninsula is a former island of the Gulf of Morbihan, connected to the Mainland by a dike road from 1878. Of modest dimensions (about 500 meters in  lenght for an average width of 100 meters.  It lies  at the confluence of the rivers  Vincin and Marle, the two main streams of Vannes. The peninsula is separated from the town of Arradon by the Vincin river and the town of Séné by the Marle river. In 1878 the résidents decided to give a different look at the area so they created a seawater pool 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 Créperie Guinguette , probably the best spot for eating in my opinion. Other good ones are the Corlazo Café ;Allée du Dr-François-Salomon facing the pool and the Café de Conleau as well as restaurant le Roof in the Best Western hotel (le cafe is good too) provides all the eating/drinking you need. There are public bathroom and change rooms available.

There is what it looks like a wonderful camping 4 stars in Conleau, we have not been living so close but do frequent camping and this one looks very good, for info Camping Le Conleau webpage:


There is a nice pines forest of Conleau. All along the shores of the Gulf of Morbihan and the banks of the Vincin river, this pinewood, composed of sea pines and secular oaks, gives this site a maritime atmosphere that offers shade and freshness to the many visitors. There is a children’s playground. And my Rex loves to walk around here a lot, my dog!
