Discovering Belle-Île

Vicky & Julien welcome you all year round to have a pleasant stay on Belle-Île (Beautiful Island), also called “the well-named” (“la bien-nommée”). After picking up your vehicle, if you are not familiar with the island, we have a few addresses to recommend to you.

Places not to be missed on Belle-Île.​

Le grand Phare

Built in 1835, the lighthouse stands at a height of 87 m above sea level. After climbing up its 213 steps, weather permitting, you can admire the view stretching from Lorient to Croisic.


This village founded in 1070 is the highest point of the island. Its church, which dates to the year 1000, has a 17th-century chancel and an 18th-century pepperpot bell tower.

Coastal Road

From Samzun to Port-York, the road (D30A) overlooks the Grands Sables and Port-York beaches. There is a superb view over the Pointe du Bugul and Gros Rocher.


This cove with its grey sand and pebbly beach is situated between the ornithological reserve and the golf.

Point of Poulains

Situated at the north-east extremity of the island (3.5km from Sauzon), this great site offers a breath-taking panorama! The lighthouse marks the islets off the island, which are particularly dangerous for navigation. The peninsula of the Poulains and the estate of Sarah Bernhardt are the subject of a protection and development programme.


This village was founded around the 6th century by monks from across the channel. Its wild landscape is the most exposed to the south-westerly winds. It features a diverse scenery, with cliffs giving way to sandy beaches.


At the western extremity of the island, Sauzon is a mix of unspoiled nature and charm. A few houses in pastel shades along the harbour face hillsides covered in gorse and heather. We advise you to have lunch there to take full advantage of this beautiful port.

Donnant Beaches

Go south down the valley to reach this beach with its strong surf. Facing due west, it is one of the most beautiful surf spots in Brittany. But beware of the dangerous swimming conditions.

Bangor Beaches

To the west of Grand Village, the beaches of Kerel and Herlin are ideal for children. Baluden beach is superb.

Port Coton

The needles of Port Coton are a set of marine rocks rising from the sea, which were immortalised several times by Claude Monet.
