The Château de Suscinio, was one of the residensces of the Duke of Brittany, built between the thriteenth and the fifteenth centurie. Located on the Rhuys Peninsula, a priveleged site, close to the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Morbihan, the castle is surrounded by marshes where exceptional fauna and flora are to discover.
This is a pretty little chateau which has been renovated painstakingly from an almost total ruin. The chateau's environs are free to walk around but the chateau itself is worth a visit. There are excellent audio guides available and you can easily spend a couple of hours wandering around. Well worth a visit.

A day out enjoyed by us all (4 year old, 7 year olds and 2 adults). Only criticism were the mosquitoes... Honestly, can' t they leave me alone??? But apart from that, the 5 of us started on the pink circuit, which can be used from 4 year old.(little ones got a continuous line, meaning they don' t need to keep unlocking their carabiner all the time, a great invention!). Moved on the orange track. A preferred one amongst my girls( more zipwires!). We then split the family and while hubby went onto the blue track (he said never again, was too hard, definitely not for the faint hearted, and he wondered how the 12 years old- recommended minimum age-would manage...), the littler ones went onto the green and yellow tracks (and pink and orange ones again and again...) Both adults tried the beige track and it was a nice one to finish on, a lot of height (up to14 m high) and a lot of zip wires! We spent the full day there and for €76 for the 5 of us, it s not cheap but it was well worth it! A few bruises, a few mosquito bites but a lot of fun!

Whilst staying in Porte Crouesty in Brittany, we noticed there was a diving school. My son (13 years old) was very keen to try his hand. I'd always wanted to but never had the opportunity nor the courage. So we signed up for a diving baptism for a morning. I was extremely nervous, my son wasn't at all! It was no problem to make a reservation, we were welcomed warmly when we arrived at 9h, shown the facilities, helped to pick out a wetsuit and even helped into the wetsuit and boots (that was the worst bit I think), what a faff...There were 4 of us doing our bapteme and I was the only one over 16! Gilles sat us down and gave us a briefing as to how to use the equipment and how to manage our diving experience. Lots of good tips. Very reassuring, although by this time I was starting to feel very nervous. We picked out flippers and were given a boat (there were two which went out on this day). The ride to the diving site was absolutely thrilling! The Zodiac inflatable went really quickly and it was just so cool.
We all went in turn with one monitor per person. Because I was the nervous one, I went first! The instructor could not have been more kind and patient. He was firm, experienced and so good at his job. I panicked once and went to the surface but we dived again and it was amazing. All the beginners had this experience with different monitors.
After the fast ride back (still thrilling), we were helped out of our wetsuits, told where to rinse them, could have helped ourselves to coffee and biscuits and took a warm shower and went off home very happy.
I don't know how the prices compare but I would prefer to know that I was in good hands and have a good first experience of diving. I'm not sure I'd go again, but I'm very glad I did and I could not have had better people around me. My son definitely wants to go again - he has the bug! I highly reccomend this diving school and the excellent team - from the receptionist to the monitors and the guys who run the school - everyone was friendly and helpful.

If you are familiar with the love story of Abelard and Heloise, this is a must see. Abelard finished out his days here in holy orders.

This island walk takes around 1 hour and is easy with lots of changing views and places of interest. The visit must be planned because access is via a tidal causeway. Check on the town web site for access times-- there is a window of about 4 hours when the causeway is open. Park on the approach road from Larmor Baden since parking by the passage is limited. There is a good cafe on the land side of the crossing. Lots of things for children to see and find and rocks to climb.

We had a really great day out visiting the beautiful I'le de Houat. Great experience sailing onboard a catamaran,the crew spoke excellent English as our French is not always good.We have made this trip twice before and intend to go again.

With daughter and family living near Vannes, we visit Brittany often, and usually come to Arradon. A beautiful walk round the point, overlooking the Golfe, and with cafés and ice-cream parlours making it even more pleasant. Lovely views, especially from the new unobtrusive marine development.

Travel through Saint-Armel to the road leading to Isle de Tascon or The Passage and discover the beautiful shores of the Gulf of Morbihan. Parking is good with a number of lovely walks; the Isle de Tascon can be accessed at low tides with the path/road being submerged at other times. In Saint-Armel stop for coffee and cake at the excellent Bar; we have enjoyed many cups of coffee here!

October.... Only one bike hire shop open when we arrived, very slow service and one man serving.... Hence we left disappointed after 45 minute wait and settled for a nice walk instead. When we returned to the port mid afternoon, we found the bigger bike hire shop open but that was too late for us. So be prepared to get off the shuttle ferry quickly and get there early if you want a bike. Shame, we were looking forward to exploring the island by bike.

An interesting film explaining the history and time to wander the grounds at your own pace led to a very enjoyable visit. The highlight was the tasting of the different ciders in the garden, which we enjoyed in lovely weather so that we were able to spend a relaxed afternoon. Add a well stocked shop for ciders and local produce to take home after your vacation and all for only 5 euro per person.
