We love the Carnac area, but had never stayed in the town before and were delighted when La Marine said they could accommodate us for the night.
Room was fine, nothing special, but clean & not too cramped.
We were lucky enough to arrive just as the town was setting up a night market. Lots & lots of stalls for craftspeople, from art, jewellery, clothing, ornaments, chocolates and our favourite, Breton Caramel. Twinkling street lights added to the magic, as did Breton musicians in the town square, along with folk dancers. Add a good dollop of warm temperature and you have the perfect mix for an excellent evening!
And it was! Despite one of the most atrocious meals I have ever encountered! We made the mistake of thinking that because we were staying at La Marine, we ought to eat there. Ha!!
Eat we did not, although we did order and pay for food. Service was poor. Long wait and when the food finally arrived it was literally inedible. Frozen food at it's very worst. When the waitress came to take away two full plates of uneaten food she didn't even question it!
So we headed off back to a local bar where we could watch the people enjoying the night market, listen to the music, and get a very good hotdog to fill our empty tummies! (So much for La Gastronomy!)
Breakfast wasn't much better. Coffee was good. Croissants were yuk. Continental meats were limited & poor.
Overall we had a fantastic stay in Carnac, and if we had just stayed at La Marine on a room only basis it would have been fine.
But avoid paying for any meals here - you will only end up having to pay again to eat elsewhere for something edible!!!
