Yes, we went to Carnac for our break. This is the view from the hotel window, a hotel! We've always rented little houses in the past but it was nice for a change, and was the first time we'd been there.
Carnac is quite small and very French. By that I mean that most of the holidaymakers are French and not much of any other language is spoken there.
It's also a place where people go to do things. Running, swimming, sailing... no-one stays still very long. Our hotel was attached to a spa which was enormously busy. There was an indoor saltwater pool which I really enjoyed.
The weather was mixed. Misty mornings and hot afternoons on the whole, with one very rainy (but still warm) morning. This makes for exploring walks followed by the beach. And a couple of trips out to Vannes and Lorient, both places we know well.
The area is known for the production of oysters. We went to a restaurant one evening and sat next to a young French couple. They didn't speak much, were on Facebook most of the time and were eating... to start they had oysters. Ten for her and twenty for him... next he had a massive steak and chips, she had moules frites (bowl of mussels with chips)... then he had a large calzone pizza, she just had another cigarette. Do not tell me that their metabolisms are somehow genetically different to ours.
Now, I have to tell you about one beach experience I had. We were situated in front of a group of young locals, all wearing Save the World type clothing. Which is not a criticism, just an observation. And pertinent I feel to what came next. The young woman got out a pair of tweezers and proceeded to pluck her legs. Spent all afternoon on the task. Made me feel quite guilty for the electric my epilator squanders...
