The Etel estuary is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Brittany. Between Lorient and Vannes, this 22 kilometre squared inland sea, with its oyster parks, peninsulas and marshes, reflects wild Breton nature and the astonishing west side of France. This river valley is invaded by the sea and forms a protected bay full of islands. One of them, called the Saint-Cado, is one of the most beautiful in the whole area. In the mouth, the "Etel barrier" closes the bay by a strip of sand dunes. Here, the views are constantly changing depending on the light and the tide. It's an image that's difficult to resist and you'll fall in love with it. It's unusual and exotic beauty forces you to remember it as unique.
If you love sailing, sea and water sports, then this is the place for you. A unique setting in France. The three important factors here are the man and the ocean, shipbuilding and navigation itself. Here everyone who comes will do all the work related to sea and sailing. Quite an experience for those who love the sea ... and for those who want to learn something new and groundbreaking. The sea breeze will push the boats to sea and to freedom.
This is a magical festival with the Celtic sounds of bagpipes and bombards. If you have not yet seen it, this festival allows you to view these instruments at least once in your life! In the afternoon, there are Celtic rock bands and dancing rings in the streets. It's worth going because it's very original.
