The Lorient area, a land of encounters in the heart of south Brittany.
The fresh breezes blowing from the north west and the warm winds coming up from the south meet here to create a landscape of contrasts, subtle plays of light and a climate that is undeniably mild: the Lorient area has always been a land of encounters.
Here, granite lies alongside soft schist, the rivers have a distinct taste of salt and the quays still smell of spices and far away places. Celtic cultures from all over the world meet here, as do famous navigators, the modern heroes of seafaring adventures, who moor their boats here. The inhabitants of a whole region have made a historical tragedy the source of authentic values: here, solidarity, friendship and hospitality are not vain words floating on a sea breeze.
Welcome to the Lorient area.
