About Carnac

Carnac and its field of menhirs are in the process of being classified as a Unesco World Heritage site. For this reason, for many months now, signposted nature trails have been helping us to get closer to the megalithic alignments while respecting the site, we warmly recommend that after dropping off your vehicle at the Alignements du Menec, you take the long walk to the Alignements de Kermario and then continue on to the Alignements de Kerlescan and the Géant du Manio in the forest.

As far as gastronomy is concerned,Carnac is home to a large number ofoyster-farmers, and the Pô is a place where you can sample oysters in one of the many oyster-farming sites.

There are many crêperies on the resort, including La crêperie de la pompe, La potion magique and Chez Marie
Côté Cuisine in Carnac is a benchmark gourmet restaurant, and reservations must be made online.
