Quiberon is beautiful!!

Oh yes our favorite hangout in our lovely Bretagne and close to home about 45 minutes by car on a lovely peninsula with the sea on both sides and close! Heaven on earth! A must to see! I have written several posts on Quiberon but never enough me think. Here is an update of an oldie for goodie post for you and me! Hope you enjoy it as I.

Ok in our busiest day of the week ,Saturday, we are always on the lookout for relaxing trips not far from our home. Well ,we are lucky to be not far from a world still unnoticed as it is the Gulf of Morbihan and the Peninsula of Quiberon. This is a long strip of land technically a peninsula and at the tip of it is wonderful beautiful Quiberon, which is a dream location for spending a day or weekend!

The wild coast or côte sauvage (see post) is something out of a Disney movie and the town itselt is laid back wonderland even in winter or summer!!  We of course went in and were able to find easy parking as usual near the fisherman’s cooperative along the ocean and walking distance to city center. Here you have a wonderful ferry passenger terminal for trips into the outlyng islands even in the Atlantic ocean!

The fish boat harbor as well as the pleasure marina are very nice areas loaded with quant seafood and breton food restaurants facing the sea. A wonderful feeling indeed. For a boy who grew up in a shrimp fisherman harbor and been around the world ,this is nostalgia at its  best and it feld nice.  Coming along the côte sauvage, the best road in for us the first thing you see is the Château Turpault, in private hands and not visited, but the sight coming in to Quiberon is magical indeed. You are now in Quiberon city.

We proceed to our lunch with previous reservation while en route here! The old favorite revised it again La Cabana.(sadly closed 2020 ! here for the memories of always). The service and food as always was good with good prices. It has a great location at end place Hoche and before the Grande Plage or big beach. For starter we had the Fahrenheit pizza and copieuse galette /boucher beef galette all wash down with a new twist of modernity for us a Touraine Sauvignon Blanc wine 2017 very chill and very nice at 18€ the bottle. We finish with desserts from banana splits to choco and coconut crêpes and express coffee ; all for 26€ per person. ok

We did a bit of walking as usual by the Grande Plage and the Place Hoche square on a rainy cloudy day that had some courageous folks on already. Usually the tourist season here starts July 14 National Day (old Bastille day). And it was time to head back home again, after another wonderful day in Quiberon!

On the way back , we got our goodies of the region at our favorite store La Trinitaine (see posts) but this time went to a brand new store in Carnac city limits village of Kergroix  on our way back to Auray on the road D768 . Here we got our fish soups, rose cider and peach liquors to ease on down the weekend!  And of course, the errands buying dog food at Maxi Zoo in Séné, soccer gloves for my boy at InterSports, bank paperwork at Auray, and finally grocery shopping the papers trails at E Leclerc in Vannes before heading finally home to find out my dear Real Madrid CF won on two goals from Frenchmen Karim Benzema!! Hala Madrid!!!

Once at home ,settled down with our beautiful and good boy Rex, our dog mix border collier/labrador or Borador!!! and my Dad watching his usual Spanish TV programs in his bedroom lol!  Sunday is yet to see as usual relaxing time in France. Hope you enjoy the tour as I. Quiberon is beautiful, need to see it to believe it!

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