France _ Lake Destinations or Sea

Was looking at Annency as a destination for next years summer holiday however, my wife is not relishing the thought of the journey from here in the Westcountry.
Does anyone have any closer suggestions for lakes or indeed a sea destination.
We will need to be able to hire accommodation.
Any suggestions gratefully received.

RIBase
Normandy/Brittany is a short hop across the channel. The Baie de Seine, runs more or less from Barfleur (recommended) to Le Havre. Loads of boating opportunities, easy launches from pretty fishing ports. D-Day beaches, islands, good fishing, more good restaurants than you can shake a stick at. The west side of the Cherbourg peninsula offers miles of empty beaches, the Channel isles for a day trip, yet more good eating, the port of Dielette has good launching & a marina. If you want to go further down, then Morbihan is supposed to be excellent for boating, virtually an inland sea with hundreds of islands, I've never been so can't comment.

Thanks Dave.
Morbihan is on the list of possibilities though I am struggling to find accommodation that I can keep my boat at or nearby moorings.

Destination picked by my family is Morbihan and the resort of Benodet.
Can anyone please advise me on launch sites as I have been looking for a couple of hours now to no avail and resources seem to be thin on the ground including a pretty non existent French tourist office.

Been to Benodet quite a few times, great place for a rib or inflatable as you can go from the sea to river all the way up to Quimper which is quite a few miles with lovely scenery, there is a campsite near Benodet called camping du letty which has own launch. we love it there. Have a look at there website it has arial video shots of the campsite and area

I have contacted them and they say they have no facility for boats ?

There is no parking for boat camping, only a place where you can put the trailers. The launching of the ship is on a dock near the campsite. Sincerely, The Letty

If you could shed some more light for me I would be grateful as that is the site the kids liked the look of.

I am struggling to find any info regards to launching in that area and it looks ideal.

There is a free launch and car park just east of the site , a lot of people tend to leave inflatable in the water of the letty directly by the campsite. The site is a beautiful site with a lovely pool, quite expensive to stay there but well worth it. We are going back next year
