As a port, the ‘Port de plaisance’ of Vannes is a bit of a disappointment to landlubbers because there isn’t much else to see than rows of moored pleasure boats on the Marle river. No boat is moving and the sea is far away. The...More

Nice port to visit on a sunny day. Lots of boats, lots of money, and lots of maintenance. It is said that the happiest days of a boaters' life are when the boat is purchased, and the day it is sold. Not being a boating...More

Nice place, central parking, short walk from old town, calm and at the same time pretty. Many people were eating sandwiches in the area to take in the views also a few restaurants offering this view as well as good food.

A lovely area where there are boats - mostly sailing craft. The area is open and spacious and just nice to wander around. The town gate is a super entrance to the town which is wonderful.
