Discover Houat and Hoëdic
You arrive in Houat, a 5-km long island, via a lively port where shiny boats are moored in herringbone fashion. Fishermen have the best spots here. Modest, authentic and discreet describe the island. Crates pile up on the docks. Shellfish, sea bass and conger eels arrive still wriggling.
A steep street leads to the village. Gently, careful not to disturb anything, enter the narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses and blue shutters. The slate roofs are cemented to resist the wind, which blows constantly on this piece of land, keeping the clouds away. At least that means it’s sunny!
