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 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.

"A comfortable, well located and well equipped cottage."
We were fortunate to have wonderful weather, cold and sunny. The cottage is south facing so was warm and light. There are lots of good walks which can start from the cottage and the port of Folleaux is small but pretty.. Access is easy and there are lots of interesting visits within a short drive. Careful selection is necessary during the winter because many places are closed but there is plenty to occupy you. The cottage is very well equipped and we were not short of anything we needed during our visit.
