Morbihan is in the Brittany region of France.


Other destinations[edit]


Morbihan is a region of Brittany rich in history and culture. The name mor bihan comes from the Breton "little sea" which is a reference to the inland sea of the Golfe du Morbihan, where an abundance of wildlife thrives, together with yachts and small boats meandering between its lovely islands. Just outside the gulf is the Atlantic Ocean, "mor braz" (big sea or ocean), where sailors once started their long voyages to the Orient.


People involved with the tourism industry will usually speak at least some English.
