Again Christmas at Rochefort en Terre!!

Revising, updating my older posts in my blog, I have come to some delighful posts on Christmas with the family in our newer region of Bretagne and even newer Morbihan breton dept 56.

I like to update these and now I come back to Rochefort en Terre Christmas 2014.

Well,  it’s that time of the year again, my best really. Love to be around, walk ,drive visit those wonderful Christmas markets in my belle France. We are doing it a bit different this year.

Usually we go out far away just before the Christmas season, this year, we decided to stay local and try the ones around us, and then after Christmas spent our end of year in between at La Rochelle.

Yesterday ,after some shopping in Vannes, we headed to the fairy tale city of Rochefort-en-Terre. 

The town is magical at any period with lots of medieval merlin the magician ambiance. However, at Christmas time is a must when folks from all over even foreigners come here , the place is pack and lively with a nice ambiance. We came this time a bit later to take advantage of the night lights, and park at the entrance to the town in the free bus company parking lot of Maury! From it on the street  walking five minutes will take you right to the center of town!

The town is full of families and plenty of strollers, pack the main street (St Michel)  in a festive festival atmosphere, good for the soul and family life. It is a must, you must be here ,in my opinion, the best in Brittany.  And of course, one of the most beautiful villages of France yeararound. webpage: https://www.les-plus-beaux-villages-de-france.org/fr/nos-villages/rochefort-en-terre/
