Sarzeau, Presqu'île de Rhuys

The town of Sarzeau on the Gulf of Morbihan, is the 'county' town of the Presqu'île de Rhuys district, at the heart of South Brittany. Situated south of the Gulf of Morbihan, dotted with countless islands, and north of the Atlantic coast, unfolding in a succession of beaches separated by rocky points, the town of Sarzeau has a strong maritime identity and flourishing oyster farming activities, all rooted in Breton tradition!

As you enter the Presqu'île, you will find a protected nature reserve (old salt marshes) called the Réserve de Duer. Adjacent to the Saint-Colombier mudflats, this site is a well-known birdwatching site, where migrating birds enjoy calm surroundings.
