Carnac Holiday Homes - Rental Cottages Carnac

Carnac is located beside the Gulf of Morbihan on the south coast of Brittany in the Morbihan department in north-western France. When you stay in a self-catering Carnac holiday home, you’ll soon become aware that the town’s major attraction – the Carnac stones - are one of the most extensive Neolithic menhir collections in the world.

When you rent a holiday cottage in Carnac, you’ll discover that Carnac is split into two centres - Carnac-Ville and Carnac-Plage (the beachfront). In total there are five beaches, including la Grande Plage, and further to the east, Plage Men Dû and Beaumer.

A stay in Carnac means also taking in its site of more than 3,000 prehistoric standing stones. The stones were hewn from local rock and erected by the pre-Celtic people of Brittany. Local tradition claims that the reason they stand in such perfectly straight lines is that they are a Roman legion turned to stone by Merlin.

The precise date of the stones is difficult to ascertain as little dateable material has been found beneath them, but the site's main phase of activity is commonly attributed to 3300 BC. One interpretation of the site is that successive generations visited the site to erect a stone in honour of their ancestors.

When you stay in self catering holiday rental accommodation in Carnac, France – you’ll soon discover that the wind and waves in the region attract lovers of sailing and the sea alike. Carnac is home to "École de Voile de Carnac" which provides sailing and windsurfing lessons and rentals to sailors of all experience levels. The geography of the Bay of Quiberon provides ideal conditions for sailing. For windsurfers, try the Saint-Colomban beach located in Carnac-Plage. The beach is very popular owing to its position which allows for the best exploitation of strong winds from the West.
