A blooming beautiful village
We are continuing our visit to different historical or artistic towns in north western France, and one my favorites among that we visited this past Monday was Rochefort-en-Terre, a commune in the Morbihan department of Brittany, which has been voted one of France’s most beautiful villages and as a result is one of Brittany’s most visited sites.
Rochefort-en-Terre was an utter delight from the moment I stepped across the floral threshold. The town is absolutely awash with flowers, especially the hydrangeas which seem so beloved of the region. It was fragrant and rich, and bees and butterflies cascaded amongst the leaves.
We didn’t really do much in this town but walk around. The centre is full of little alleys, steps and a cobbled walk way up to the Chateau which dominates the little town and the gorge on which it is. The architecture is beautiful, colorful and full of tiny details to spot. The houses themselves, as well as the town’s flowerbeds, were dripping with flowers and plants.
