Nestled in the heart of southern Brittany less than two hours away from Rennes and Nantes, Lorient enjoys an exceptional location huddled on the shores of the Atlantic.
The city's appeal has been actively boosted by the development of several different industries (agri-feed, shipbuilding, tourism, etc.) as well as its commercial harbour, fishing port and marina. Today, Lorient is active across a variety of different industries.
Heavily bombed in World War II, the city was rebuilt in a modern style, with the Grand Théâtre's architecture serving as a case in point.
Renowned for its Festival Interceltique, Lorient is a city that gives equal pride of place to both culture and water sports.
In Lorient, entrepreneurship is rewarded.
Set off to explore the Île de Groix island for a weekend away. (Natura 2000 site). According to the local saying, "Qui voit Groix voit sa joie".
