The Indian summer in Quiberon Bay

Witness the Indian summer in Quiberon Bay! The late autumn offers very pleasant temperatures until the end of October. It is

The almost deserted beaches are all yours! Walking with your feet in the water is a good way to recharge your batteries and invigorate yourself.

Wrapped up in your sweater, protected from the spray, in boots and an oilskin, disconnect yourself helped by the sound of the waves and gulls. After the walk, nothing beats a hot chocolate on the terrace along with a pancake or waffle to warm you up. Then, don't miss the last moments of light of the day by immortalising a sumptuous sunset.

Camors walks

Glowing red landscapes

As the days get shorter, the forest displays its autumn colours, which form a burst of colours dominated by shades of yellow, orange and red. Walks in the forest are a must to admire the natural spectacle of autumn colours.

Nothing beats a walk in the Camors forest, on the Cadoudal to Locoal-Mendon road, or along the Auray River to enjoy these autumn landscapes, and take great photos!


Go mushroom picking!

Autumn is the ideal season for gourmet walks to reconcile the desire for fresh air and gastronomy. Go for a gourmet walk in the forest in search of mushrooms. In our woods you will find ceps and girolle mushrooms. If you are no specialist, make sure to have your gathering checked!

Autumn is also the time to harvest chestnuts, pine cones and leaves that have fallen from the trees... enjoy beautiful walks with family, alone or with friends.
