The Rhuys Peninsula and its treasures
Located south of Vannes, the Rhuys Peninsula forms a long arm of 25 km, protecting a bay commonly known as the “Little Sea” (literal Breton translation of Morbihan) from the impressive Atlantic Ocean. This regional natural park of the Gulf of Morbihan offers a beautiful diversity of landscapes between salt marshes, footpaths, fine sandy beaches and medieval castles. It is here that many oyster farmers meticulously raise their shellfish in oyster beds that can be admired as far as the eye can see.
So, indeed, it would seem that life is good on the Rhuys Peninsula. It is certainly for this reason that many artisans work with passion on this piece of land nestled between the Gulf on one side and the Ocean on the other. It is probably the Breton way of life and this exceptional natural setting that have simply seduced these producers of beers, ciders, cheese and biscuits. Local traditions will not disappear, especially with the growing desire to eat local foods.
All in all, life’s little pleasures are essentially simple pleasures such as tasting a good oyster for example… on the Presqu’île of course!
Find these little pleasures in our Gulf of Morbihan Tribord Food Tour.
