Lorient, on the southern coast of Brittany, is an impressive seafaring city, which boasts six ports including a fishing harbour and a yacht marina. But coming on holiday to Lorient is not just about the nautical activities on offer: the region’s stunning, green countryside will please any nature lover hoping to enjoy outdoor activities during their holiday in Brittany. Book a flight for your trip to Lorient and hike across the valleys and rolling hills of Scorff or Blavet. Go mountain biking, horse riding or hire a quad bike for the day! And, who needs the Antilles, when just off the coast you’ve got the white sandy beaches of Groix Island, Brittany’s second largest island? And with such a rich, maritime history and impressive Atlantic coastline, Lorient is also home to several, superb museums. Make sure you visit the Cité de la Voile Eric-Tabarly, Lorient’s multi-media exhibition centre named after the famous French yachtsman, the Stosskopf Submarine Base with its military hardware, not forgetting the fishing port of Keroman and its huge, municipal fish market. Reserve a hotel room in Lorient that’s close to its amazing landmarks. You could also visit during Lorient’s world-famous, annual Festival Interceltique! Plunge yourself into Celtic culture…anyone up for an Irish jig?
