Gavin May report 2022

A small village with a flag stone main street, baker 100m from the marina, walled ramparts to walk along. There is a lifeboat museum nearby, and a short ferry trip across to the nearby WW2 submarine base (closed early summer 2022) and a major build centre and exhibition of Sail. Buses and small ferries run around the whole area for a fixed fee, so it is very easy to get about. If you need to stock up, the No16 bus outside the Capitainerie is 7 mins to a medium Intermarche supermarket with butcher and fishmonger etc.

It is a nice place with a fun market spilling into the streets.

Lorient does have a train station so if you need to get to Saint Malo or Paris, you can catch the train there. The Saint Malo train goes through Rennes and takes approx 3 hours.
