The Port du Crouesty in the Rhuys peninsula !!!

So let me start by telling you that i have written on the Port du Crouesty , part of the town of Arzon in the Rhuys peninsula on several previous posts in my blog. This is a very nice area of my beautiful Morbihan breton dept 56 of the lovely region of Bretagne. I am updating this older post with text and links. As said, this is a very nice place that has gathered a lot of attention specially from boaters but also tourists even from France. In the Morbihan, it is a must to visit. We love it with the family here doing all kinds of activities even tandem bicycle rides from one port to the other! Hope you enjoy this post as I.

This time the visit was special as one of my former bosses (CFO) from Paris recently purchase a boat and has it base here. He was so kind to stop by my house early this year and now firmly with the boat here, he nicely invited me over for dinner on the boat ! So here I went again to see and eat out at his boat in near the Harbormaster office in Quai G! The area is very memorable to me and my family so I was able to trade some tips with him and he show me around the installations reserve for boat owners who anchored there. They have full facilities even restroom and showers baby changers and even grocery delivery to their boats as well as a water taxi to take them from one side to the other all included in their wharf fees. The class à la Française !



Let me tell you a bit on the town of Arzon ,the town the port du Crouesty belongs. Nice memories for me and you do well to stop by. 

Arzon is a town located at the end of the presqu’île de Rhuys ( Rhuys peninsula), it is bordered to the north by the Gulf of Morbihan, south by the bay of Quiberon, western part of Mor Braz (the big sea by the Breton just before going out into the Atlantic ocean) , and to the east by the town of Saint-Gildas-de-Rhuys. It has two seaside resorts of very different characters: Port-Navalo, dating from the early 20C (see post) , and Le Crouesty,(see posts) modern seaside resort, in constant development since the 1970s and until today, built around the largest marina on the Brittany coast. The port du Crouesty is a marina created in 1973 on the site of a swampy area located at the entrance of the Gulf of Morbihan  on the territory of the town of Arzon.  Today the marina, which has been expanded recently, can accommodate  1,500 pleasure boats on pontoons making it the largest marina in Bretagne.


As I walk by it , the area brings lots of wonderful moments with my dear late wife Martine, she loved to come here.  Hope you enjoy the post and do visit. Arzon and its Port du Crouesty are a must in the Morbihan. I had a wonderful moment with a dear close friend by now more than an ex boss, and his wife.
