The coastline of southern Brittany in France is a sailor’s dream. Gorgeous harbors and ports, superb beaches, scenic islands, quiet anchorages and quaint villages abound. Southern Brittany provides the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable sailing holiday along the northwest coast of France.
Experienced sailors will be hard pressed to choose between the scenic bays, rivers, ports and islands located within. Île aux Moines’ scenic walks make it a favorite destination for those looking to unwind, and Île d’Arz’s lovely creeks and coves are popular stops for taking a dip. The Morbihan region is home to many prehistoric megalithic structures. The large stones were used as monuments or to construct buildings. Gavrinis, a small, uninhabited island, hosts what may arguably be Brittany’s most impressive Neolithic site, built roughly between 4,500 and 3,000 BC. Its pyramid-shaped stone burial chamber features a long stone passageway whose walls are covered with beautiful, ancient carvings and artwork.
When sailing along France’s Atlantic coastline, there are endless opportunities to sample the local fruits de mer (seafood), cider and crepes. Muscadet, a fruity, white, french wine that is made in the Loire Valley, pairs perfectly with the regions seafood cuisine. Tides vary greatly and Brittany’s coast is perfect for skippers with an International Certificate of Competence (an ICC license is required) to gain additional expertise in using the tides and currents in navigation.
