This is a magical storybook place. We set off from the very off-putting docks at Lorient on a large ferry. It was pretty difficult to find a place to park. We expected perhaps a bit of a cruise feeling, but there were no refreshments on...More

I went to visit some friends on the Island, with my Grandkids!!! It was a real pleasure- we had a great weather for the season and we even went for a “quick” swim. Yes, we were a bit crazy but the temperature was great and...More

My family of 4 came to the Ile de Groix for a day trip while staying in Lorient. We left wishing that we'd been able to spend more time here. We had lunch in Port Tudy after getting off the ferry then hired some bikes...More

We loved the relaxed spirit in the harbour of Port Tudy. There were loads of musicians, fresh seafood and many spots to enjoy your sun downer.

The Ile de Groix is a short and picturesque 45min ferry crossing (€30 return each from Lorient), and a joy to visit and cycle round.

We have been here a few times but tend to miss the busy weekends. However on our last trip we went on a Friday and Saturday so we had a great time socialising with the local sailors. We hired a car and found out more...More

The ferry was a tad expensive but the island was beautiful. We cycled around most of the island and the views were breathtaking. I would recommend taking a picnic as round the northern end of the island there are not a lot of restaurants etc....More

I visited Ile de Groix, just south of Lorient (a short, 30 minute boat ride from the town's ferry port) with some friends in April 2016. The boat takes you to Port Tudy, just NE of the main town on Groix, Le Bourg. It's a...More

It’s very expensive (over £300) to take the car, so we left it in the port car park for a week. The car park was very busy as a lot of people have the same idea. We went as foot passengers and paid extra to take the bikes... More
