Gulf of Morbihan in Brittany, Episode 123

Category: Normandy & Brittany


The Gulf of Morbihan in Southern Brittany is some of the most beautiful coastline anywhere in France.  Elyse knows the place well because her husband's family owns a home right on the Gulf of Morbihan and they have been there many times. Today we talk about what the things she loves about the area, for example:

  • The ocean, ports and boats
  • Wild beaches and tides
  • Crêpes,  galettes, and other Breton foods with strange names
  • Muscadet wine and hard cider
  • Dolmens,  menhir and other pre-historic attractions

At the end of the episode Annie and Elyse reminisce about crazy things they did as older teenagers, and--you're not going to believe this if you've been following the show for a long time--Elyse doesn't have a museum to recommend in the area. Shocking!
