Gulf of Morbihan in Brittany, Episode 123

Category: Normandy & Brittany

This episode features our frequent and very popular guest Elyse Rivin. If you enjoy her episodes, please consider supporting her on Patreon.

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!
