Recall that Quimperlé is located at the confluence of the Ellé and the Isole then forming a coastal river La Laïta , The Isole river has very clear waters. It has its source in the Montagnes Noires, in Morbihan. Its course is made up of many meanders, until it creates deep gorges at the level of the Cascadec forest, in Scaër. The Isole is a 48 km long river that crosses Morbihan and Finistère before flowing into the Laïta. Five bridges in the town of Quimperlé upstream from the confluence with the Ellé to form the Laïta.
