If you’re just here for a few days the best places to stay in Vannes are right in the old part of town. But if you’re staying for a bit longer and want to use it as a base for exploring the Golfe du Morbihan and the Brittany coast then it’s worth expanding your search for the best places to stay in Vannes into the surrounding countryside.
Vannes is a true Brittany beauty with a wonderful old medieval centre and port - and lovely cobbled alleyways running between them and old fortifications surrounding them. As well as beauty, this little city has a lot of life to it, with a good collection of bars and restaurants and a busy marina.
Vannes is a lovely centre for just strolling around. There are boutiques, pottery shops, little galleries and cafes, creperies, bars and restaurants. Being by the sea the seafood is excellent, but it doesn’t stop there, Vannes offers a fine representation of Brittany’s best cuisine.
Vannes also has a lovely little museum opposite the cathedral.
As with many coastal spots in France, the best places to stay in Vannes are busy during the peak summer months. So get organised and plan well ahead, or else come in the quieter months when you'll have the pretty town to yourself!
