the_film_guru_1 :

Ive booked a holiday to Vannes, France ages ago and im going next week. Im looking at the BBC weather for Vannes, however, and it doesnt seem to be that hot. I didnt want 33 degree stuff but in the high twenties was wanted. Im getting a little dissapointed. Is it a nice town to back up the not-that-hot-for-a-holiday weather? Or anything to make me feel better?

colargol :
"Hello, I leave near Vannes. the weather should be quite good on the next week. Today, the weather was verry sunny and hot. But don't expect too much the 33 degres... It is however a good place for the holidays. There are many things to visit and make around. And if the weather is good, I advice you to go around the "golfe du morbihan" by boat, and visit the "île aux moines" for instance."

"Brittany is beautiful - Erquy is a beautiful fishing village - there is an amazing crepe restaurant right off the beach. English is good, I would recommend that you learn a little french and make the effort - that is greatly appreciated by most. Please don't try to force english. The weather will be wet and cold - you are on the English Channel. may give you some historical weather patterns for France."

"I lived there for a while, Its really beautiful although in winter it has not so good weather. 50-55 thousand live there. It is north west of France. Oh and the people are lovely!"

"They once used to have a significant art glass industry. They are dull."
Millie :
"I don't live there but have been a few times and will be there again in a few days (yeah!!!!). You will find a little description on these websites: It is in the region which has the highest concentration of megaliths in the world. Major neolithic sites near Vannes are Carnac and Locmariaquer. It is also on the Gulf of Morbihan with its many islands and wonderful seaside resorts. Brittany has gorgeous super fine white sand beaches. Too bad the weather is not a little better..."
