When you go to Quiberon you'll soon understand why Quiberon is still THE place to visit.
It is a strategic departure point for the islands of Houat, Hoëdic and Belle-île or the Gulf of Morbihan and as such has been coveted during the course of the centuries. Today, sailors, sports people, walkers and spa patients take full advantage of its privileged location.
It enjoys a recognized micro-climate and its pure air and high quality waters have led to the creation of a Thalassotherapy centre of world-wide repute.
The west facing "Côte Sauvage" stretches over 8 kms from the "Château Turpault" to the "Pointe du Percho". It belongs to the Conservatoire du littoral, ("Coastal protection agency") as it is constantly under attack from the sea and the winds. Even in calm conditions waves crash noisily onto the sheer cliff faces throwing up jets of foam. Erosion has created innumerable creeks, reefs, caves and arches visible only at low tide.
