The Brittany region

The Morbiham region of Brittany enjoys a warmer climate than most. The river Vilaine flows into the bay of quiberon where a number of attractive Islands can be visited by tourist vessels from Vannes,

There are many historic towns around including La Roche Bernard, Vannes, Rochfort-en-Terre, Nantes, Redon.

La Roche Bernard

La Roche Bernard has a beautiful situation with high rocky borders to the River Vilaine. It was founded by a Viking 'Bernard' who used the shelter of the high rocks for his vessels. The crossing of the river was by ferry for centuries until a high bridge was built in the nineteenth century. This bridge was replaced in the twentieth century which carried road and rail traffic but was demolished 'by accident by a German mine' in the 1939-45 war. A new bridge was built in 1960. Until then the crossing resumed by ferry and by floating pontoons borrowed from the invasion beaches.

The town had tended to be 'protestant' until eventually the Catholics won the day. But there remains a protestant chapel. As a port the town was known for its export of pit-props to S. Wales, but is now almost entirely given over to pleasure vessels.

It has a pleasant river frontage with bars, restaurants etc.
