We took the train from Paris (Montparnasse) to St Nazaire then rented a car. The places we visited while in southern Brittany: Pornichet, la Baule, le Croisic, Batz sur Mer, Guerande, Vannes, Carnac, Guiberon and Concarneau-I’d never heard of one of these before in my life. It was just enough to get a taste of that part of Brittany-enough to make you want to visit again.
A castle on the edge of the ocean that appeared to be lived in. This was in Quiberon which is on a piece of land jutting out into the ocean called Presqu’ile de Quiberon. Presqu’ile means almost an island which struck me as curious. I guess it might be called a spit of land, maybe a penisula, to Americans. I’ve never lived near the ocean so don’t know these nautical/geographic terms.
