The largest island in Brittany with 84 km² of escape and dream...102 km of coastal paths for pedestrians only; a large palette of colours and contrasts: a real escape.
A picturesque, historical and gastronomic stopover.
Houat et Hoedic
An identical destiny for both islands. No cars and no sounds other than the waves and the wind.... Houat & Hoedic are rightfully referred to as « the islands of silence ». Houat means duck in Breton, and Hoedic, duckling.
Houat : discover Saint-Gildas Port, its wide beach, the fort built by Vauban, and visit the Eclosarium. One part of the Eclosarium presents Houat and its history and the other part presents the treasures of phytoplankton.
Hoëdic : it is different from Houat, smaller, flatter, and wilder, with a more homogenous architecture. You will be charmed by this preserved land. Discover the Notre-Dame-la-Blanche Church and the Three Crosses. The Three Crosses of Hoedic form the boundaries of a protected area. Hoedic traditionally provides asylum and promises a curse on anyone who may harm its population and those seeking protection within its boundaries.
The Hoedic Fort: Built in 1859, it now is owned by the Coastal Shore Conservatory and exhibits the natural treasures of the island.
