With Carnac and its megaliths from the 4th century B.C., with the island of Gavrinis and its sculpted mounds a few miles away, Morbihan, meaning "small sea" in Breton, has lots more surprises waiting for you. And with the ocean spray intoxicating you, the excitement of the sea soon calls out to you. Luckily for you, Quiberon and its peninsula are packed full of water activities and sports, from sailing for purists, to kitesurfing for lovers of board sports and not forgetting the more traditional kayaking or cycling; still the best and most popular way to discover the charms of this region, with its scents from long ago. Fragrances captured by local artisans which can be enjoyed in one of Morbihan's best cake shops: la maison d’Armorine. After its salted butter sweets have had you melting with pleasure, Quiberon's dream-like location makes a walk around the Breton villages an absolute must. You may like to go and find out whether Belle-Ile-en-Mer, with its colorful little fishing port, is deserving of its name. Or maybe you'd prefer to stay on the mainland and head for the wild coast where you'll be able to explore the villages of Saint-Pierre-Quiberon? This coast, with its many beaches, promises a bracing swim. And if the ocean is proving to be an effective natural stress-reliever, an afternoon relaxing at Thalassa Sea and its spa will provide you with all the ingredients for the perfect panacea.
