COUNTRY BREAK : THE PENINSULA OF QUIBERON WITH SAUVAGE x MASTIC

Loaded with iodine and sea spray, Mastic takes you to Morbihan in the south of Brittany, for a Country Break in partnership with the 4* Sauvage campsite, the starting point of our visit. We crisscrossed the peninsula aboard the campsite's bikes in search of the best Quiberon addresses between surf spots, fine sand beaches, old stones and gourmet stops.

It was under an azure blue sky that we cycled across the Quiberon peninsula. From our base camp, installed at the brand new Sauvage open-air hotel, we traveled the peninsula and its surroundings in search of the best local addresses.


Located in the heart of the peninsula and facing the sea, the 4* Sauvage campsite is part of the Rivages Collection, an independent outdoor hotel group, which offers its guests simple, natural and virtuous stays. Holidaymakers stroll through the wooden and sandy paths lined with lush vegetation to their pretty cabin clad in black wood hidden behind the foliage. The terraces of the cabins are equipped with Ecofurn wooden deck chairs which immediately invite you to relax and confirm the environmental policy of the hotel group. Everything is designed to make your stay pleasant: the staff is attentive, the cabins are perfectly equipped, on site a shed rents bikes, a games room, ping-pong tables and a basketball court welcome the most young people, a food truck is installed in an Airstream camper van, outings are organized with local partners. And from 2024, a magnificent aquatic area will complete the premises.


So it was from this new generation campsite that we traveled through the villages of the peninsula in search of the most authentic spots and the coolest addresses.







WALK & ACTIVITIES


The peninsula cycle path

What could be better than discovering the peninsula with your hair blowing in the wind? A cycle path takes you from Quiberon to Plouharnel and crisscrosses the peninsula along the ocean and through the maritime pine forests. The more sporty can continue along the greenway to Ethel.


Tour of the peninsula on foot

Travel the entire southern part of the peninsula and discover the cliffs of the Côte Sauvage, the southern tip, the dunes and all its beaches. A large 29 km loop which leaves from the Isthmus of Penthièvre. It's long and requires a bit of training but the good news is that there is almost no difference in altitude.


The village of Sainte-Barbe

For lovers of old stones and history, the quiet and charming hamlet of Sainte-Barbe just outside Plouharnel has a picturesque chapel, the scene of a historical episode which pitted the chouans against Republican soldiers during the Revolution. Also, an alignment of 27 menhirs stands in a neighboring field and the village leads directly to the large white sand beach.


Sunset in Portivy

To taste whelks at aperitif time or enjoy a mussel and fries on the port terraces while enjoying the sunset...

Port of Portivy 56510 Saint-Pierre-Quiberon


Surfing at Guérites beach

The village of Plouharnel at the entrance to the peninsula is one of the most famous surf spots in Brittany and France. Moreover, a sign announces the color as soon as you enter the village. The Breton Surf School has been providing lessons on Guérites beach since 1994 for all ages and levels.
