La Ferme de Lann Hoedic is an attractive site, with spacious pitches and plenty of trees.

The site has two mixed toilet/shower blocks which are modern and clean. Strangely, toilet paper and soap is not provided, although there was a handryer. Lack of these necessities seems common in France. It just means you have to remember to carry your own with you when you pay a visit, however I would prefer to pay slightly more for the convenience of having paper and soap provided.
Highlights of our visit to the Rhuys Peninsula
|Craft Market in Sarzeau|
|Fresh Apricots in the Market|
- Sarzeau, a pretty market town with lots of pavement cafes, church and markets in the square. Visit on market day for a wonderful range of fresh fruit and veg, fish, bread, cheese and meats. There was also a craft weekend market. Unfortunately it poured with rain the whole weekend.
|Castle at Suscinio|
Suscinio, fairytale castle, previously the home of the lords of Normandy - currently being renovated, salt marshes, avocets, long sandy beach edged with wildflowers. I was waylaid by an elderly french gentleman near the artisans' houses and the creperie. A very long conversation in French resulted in him trying to sell me a cottage! He either mistook me for someone with euros to spare or something was lost in translation.
Le Passage, St.Armel, La Villeneuve. It was another miserable. wet day when we travelled down the narrow strip of land that connects the mainland to Le Passage which is almost an island. Flat bottomed oyster boats are moored here. There are pretty views across the bay, a cottage on an island that made me think of Famous Five adventures, lashings of ginger beer, smugglers and strange 'goings on'. The rain stopped and on our way back we stopped at a roadside bar tabac, I think in St. Armel. The French have diversification just right. This one doubled as a boulangerie and patisserie so we were able to enjoy a glass of wine whilst contemplating which of the delicious pains et tartes we would choose for a picnic.
We will definitely go back to the Rhuys Peninsula and La Ferme de Lann Hoedic, we loved it and there is so much more to see and enjoy.
