Just 40 min away from the Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool is Carnac with its 'Grand plage' voted one of the top twenty beaches in France. Last Thursday I popped down to the coast after a lovely curried mussel's and chips lunch at Aurray and decided to visit the Carnac stones.
After 3 years of living in Brittany and countless trips too the coast I found myself in tourist mode and wanted to see the famous stones. They were easy to find following the signs through Carnac and I was truly impressed with the amount of effort that must have gone into constructing the lines of stones.
There were 5 areas of stones all positioned in lines, the fields of which were only a few hundred yards in depth but stretching over a mile in length.
After seeing the stones I would always recommend guest staying at La Forge holiday cottage to go see them, its the Brittany equivalent of Stone Henge.
