The Barre d'Etel

At Mané-Ster we give you advice about places to explore and regional specialities to taste

Here is the Barre d'Etel, a beautiful an unspoiled natural site within the protected area Grand site de France "Gâvres-Quiberon".


Protected natural site

A beautiful sandy arc which stretches more than 35 kilometres from the peninsula of Gâvres to the one of Quiberon, which has recently obtained the label Grand site de France.

It is the largest natural area located on the brittany coast and the biggest dune massif of Brittany.

All along this area you will discover unique landscapes.

Due to this absence of urbanisation the fauna and flora are preserved. In order to respect the environment, ride along this area by taking the green bicycle lane.

At Mané-Ster nature is kind. Being near the sea and its mild climate allows us to grow wonderful vegetables in all seasons. Noel will show you his bio cottage garden, and you will be able to taste unusual tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons, melons, varieties of green salads and other delicacies.

CARNAC

CARNAC

Les Alignements de Carnac are the world-famous stones dating from the Neolithic age. There are about 3000 “menhirs” (upright stones), covering nearly 4 kilometres.

The site is classed as a Historic Monument.

There are many theories about why these unique stones exist but to this day, the mystery has not been solved.

In order to preserve and protect this patrimony, the local towns hope to have the site become classified within the world UNESCO Patrimony.


The boat graveyard at Magouer

The boat graveyard at Magouer

A small fishing village, opposite Etel, the Magouer, is a haven of peace. Slightly off the beaten track it remains completely unspoiled by tourism. Situated near the mouth of the Ria d'Etel lies the old fishing boat graveyard. Not to be missed.
