The department of Morbihan in the south-eastern part of Brittany has a coastal area offering a micro-climate, the Morbihan Gulf on the south coast; where you will find the ancient town of Vannes. Morbihan is bordered by Cotes-d'Armor to the north, Ille -et-Vilaine to the east, Pays de la Loire to the southeast and Finistere to the west.
Morbihan's main activities are agriculture, fishing and tourism. Oysters are cultivated in the Gulf of Morbihan. Tourism is popular along the Morbihan coastline and in the medieval towns and villages dotted around the countryside. Carnac is the French version of Stonehenge with stones laid in concentric circles by an ancient people.
These Megaliths and Dolmens and Menhirs are believed to have been placed there between 3500 and 1800 B.C and you see their symbols everywhere. Attractive Property in the area is easy to find with lovely Farmhouses, Water mills and sleepy Cottages in abundance.
