As a port, the ‘Port de plaisance’ of Vannes is a bit of a disappointment to landlubbers because there isn’t much else to see than rows of moored pleasure boats on the Marle river. No boat is moving and the sea is far away. The...More

Beautiful place to visit. We stayed right on the harbour. Always something happening. Lots of lovely eating places to choose from and bars to relax and have a beverage.

A lovely area where there are boats - mostly sailing craft. The area is open and spacious and just nice to wander around. The town gate is a super entrance to the town which is wonderful.

Plenty of parking, restaurants and loos around this central area. Boats and surroundings are always interesting, and this is a place for watching - boats and people. We're are usually here in summer, and nearly always enjoy sunshine.
