You'll feel like you're in a different country after a short five-minute boat trip, that's guaranteed. This is the effect that Ile aux Moines, pearl of the Gulf of Morbihan, has on people! As soon as you set foot on this island surrounded by the Mare current, deemed to be the strongest in Europe, you will be transported to another Brittany, more like the Greek islands. Just like the Greek islands, you will find a jumble of little white fishermen's houses, winding alleyways opening onto gardens full of flowers with a view of the sea and a way of life that's only found on islands. The bicycle is king, so we have some advice: do like the locals do and hire a bike straight away to explore the little streets and the 14 kms of tracks. Sometimes you may need to descend from your mount and continue on foot to reach an inlet where you can sit on the sand facing the elements and think poetic thoughts.
