Rochefort-en-Terre, an historic town

Twenty minutes from the Gulf of Morbihan, Rochefort-en-Terre was built in the 12th century on a rocky spur, in the middle of the moors and the forests.

The town is now ranked among the “Most Beautiful Villages in France”. Along its cobbled streets are a series of 16th and 17th century timber-framed residences, with granite façades, plentifully decorated with geraniums and ivy, corbelled houses and painters’ and craftsmen’s workshops with their stylised shop signs.

 

Don’t miss: Notre-Dame-de-la-Tronchaye chateau and church.
