Brec'h

favorite_borderAdd to favourites

Crossed by the Tréauray valley, Brec'h is a green city. This rich natural environment protects many animal and plant species. The Loc'h River flows in the hollow of this valley, and becomes, at the port of Saint-Goustan, the Auray River before flowing into the Gulf of Morbihan. Along the Loc'h, there used to be many water mills, essential for the work of millers.

In Tréauray, the construction of a dam in the late 1950s led to the creation of a large lake. Fishermen like to go for a spot of fishing particularly for trout and pike, while walkers delight in its bordering paths. The landscapes change with the seasons, revealing a new and preserved fauna and flora. In spring, the flowering of rhododendrons colour the banks pink.

Don't miss the Ecomusée de Saint-Dégan ! Nestled in the Tréauray valley, this typical Breton village has preserved its cottages, furniture, well and bread oven shared by its inhabitants in the past.

From the village of Saint-Dégan, a beautiful 8km walk on the roads and country roads leads you to the valley and the very beautiful chapel of Saint-Quirin.

Behind the peaceful aspect of the town, there are a multitude of villages, heritages, festivals and activities to discover.
