Vannes and its region
|Situated in the beautiful Brittany countryside on the majestic Gulf of Morbihan, the VANNES metropolitan area has 100,000 inhabitants. Thanks to its exceptional geographic location and thriving economy, the region attracts many new companies.
While long being considered as an agricultural area, Vannes has become a major centre for other sectors of activity, such as the production and promotion of natural products, information processing, sub-contracting, automotive equipment, sailing, and, obviously, tourism.
Just a stone's throw from the islands of Belle-Ile-en-Mer, Houat and Hoëdic, and the coastal villages of Carnac, La Trinité-sur-Mer and Quiberon, Vannes, as the Port of the Gulf of Morbihan, has a long tradition of welcoming travellers and visitors. Thanks to the city's great hotel capacity and easy access by road, rail, air or sea, the CHORUS hosts events that reach far beyond the region.

VANNES has a wide variety of tourist attractions: the city's cultural and historic heritage, as well as the sea.
