Our Neighbourhood

Rennes, the capital of Brittany, is a very pleasant place to live in and to explore.

More about the neighbourhood

It has a rich historic and architectural heritage (half-timbered houses, medieval cobblestone streets, the Parlement of Brittany, etc), and its famous “Marché des Lices”, one of France's largest public markets where local organic producers offer fish and other seafood, vegetables, fruits etc, and Breton specialities every week: a must-see!

There are plenty of things to see and do in Rennes, and there are lots of bars, restaurants and shops. You can go for interesting walks in the cobblestoned historic centre, and visit the Opera and the Parlement.

Rennes is centrally located, less than an hour from many tourist destinations. You can enjoy the sea (Saint-Malo, Saint-Brieuc, Dinard, Cancale, etc), admire the wonder of Mont Saint-Michel, the Morbihan Gulf, La Baule, Dinan, the Forest of Brocéliande, Vannes, etc.

You can also visit the Peace Memorial at Caen and the sites of the D Day Normandy landings.

And you are only one and a half hours from Paris by train, giving you an opportunity to visit the capital of France and its many wonders.
