An untamed nature, pure and iodized air, welcome to the "sister" islands, Houat and Hoedic !
A bit of history...
Connected to the mainland thounds of years ago,Houat, Hoedic and the surrounding islets formed an extension of the Quiberon peninsula.
Man has lived on them since the Neolithic period and many traces of megalithic and Gallo-Roman civilization can be found.
Today, a few huindred people live there all year round. They look after and take care of their islands to better share them with summer visitors.
