Did you ever think about industrial tourism?

Le france

Not far away from Le Domaine de Bodeuc we have at our disposal several industrial sites very interesting to visit for adults, and who knows, a good source of inspiration for kids looking for their future carrier.....

Airbus Industries : In Saint Nazaire, visit the assembly line of the A380. Be careful the site beeing classified, you need to communicate your ID card or passeport, and there is a delay of 3 days for European citizens, and a week for non Europeans.

Les Chantiers de L'Atlantique: In Saint Nazaire, again huge construction, how thos geants of the seas are build. Very interesting as at the moment two ships are under construction.

The printing factory of the newspaper Ouest France : In Rennes, very interesting to discover how a newspaper is issued.

Morbreizh brewing house: in Vannes the thursday and Friday at 16 PM. How biers are produced, testing of the 5 different biers produced.

For the one who can, you should not miss the wednesday morning market, so much things to see.

You will then take the road to Baden, Port Blanc, where you will take the boat to L'ile aux Moines. The journey is easy and fast.

There is a boat leaving every 15 minutes, a nice and short cruise, and here you are!

Then you will discover a very different atmospher on the island, even mediterranean trees, there is a warmer temperature on the island, thanks to the protection of Morbihan golfe.
