Brittany, our little get away for 2 days…
My husband and I always wanted to come visit and get emprint of Brittany.
It is wide, and you have to make choices!
Where shall we go to: the broceliande forest, a city such as Rennes, the coast but which coast….
Our was take our time, be by the sea, and enjoy simple things in a coast and charming atmosphere.
We ended up in a charming out of the way, little hotel, the Lodge Kerisper, located in the Trinité-sur-mer, morbihan.
A white main house linked to 2 small others and a swimming pool, all gather around a common beautiful little flower garden.
One of the thinks that striked us, in la Trinité-sur-mer and the surroundings, was the amount of Hortensia, from pink to blue passing by purple! beautiful !
And of course in Brittany, the amount of Créperie! pankakes places, it’s like eating pasta in Italy you can t be disapointed!
And fishes sea food, fresh as it can be…
Let’s not forget cider.
And dessert. Funny coincidence, one of the best patissier of France M. Alain Chartier, had an ice cream shop, also selling macaron right on la Trinité sur mer front de mer, sea front.
We went by to the Alignement, very famous and know by Carnac and else where! Surprising, how in the Neolithic man and women ( who knows) had the ingenuousness and idea and strength to put up to hudge stones! Dolmens are also all around the area.
Questions are still open on why.
But chapeau bas
Back on the gastronomy :
2 good address if you want a good and simple restaurant with fresh product well cooked, great athmosphere and good service:
Le quai la Trinité sur mer!
They are full winter through summer and never take reservation but you ll find a place.
The road to Quiberon is beautiful, Quiberon is an island attached to the main land une presque-île.
Therefore you can see on both side the shore and the sea.
The beaches are of very soft sand.
After 10 mn drive from Carnac, you can decide to access Quiberon from the wild coast côte sauvage.
So worth it, magnificent cliffs, small beaches with only pedestrian access…
Close to your arrival point but still on the wild coast, we saw a restaurant La Criée. Smelled delicious, but no tables left. ( a bonus to try)
It was for good, as we discovered le restaurant Le café de Maria.
Le restaurant le café de Maria Quiberon, not directly on the sea, you can see it while you re walking by the port!
The adress: 8 rue de Kervozes Port Maria- Quiberon phone number: 0033(0)297505389.
Better to reserve this one, we got lucky arriving at 8 pm to find the last non-reserved table.
(You still see the sea from your table, if you ask for)
A good excuse to go back to Quiberon, great ambiance, service, music, and the fish was so fresh, delicious and served with nice vegetable! un Délice .
Not to forget the dessert! I had a crepe soufflée à la framboise. Pancake with rasberry and vanilla ice cream.
My husband had a cake called the cake of Maria. it’s a chocolate Charlotte ( kind of chocolate mousse) stuffed with cream brûlée! Un délice (delicious).
One our way back to the kids, we stopped by Auray, and the Port de Goustan. Beautiful little city. Nice creperie le Bar à crêpe
Hope I made you dream a little, and that you ll have the chance to travel to Brittany!
We’ll certainly do, hopefully a bit longer and with the kids.
The tips above are child proff as well…
Above wild coast and Quiberon.
More pictures will come later, when I ll get on my computer… In the meantime thanks to my iPhone …
