During these All Saints holidays, Morbihan will indeed be a tourist destination favored by the French but also foreigners. At the Maison de la Garenne in Vannes, foreign tourists have returned since September to enjoy its guest rooms: “Clearly they are back, confirms Christine Goursolas, owner of the establishment. We see them every week. They mainly come from Europe but also from the United States.”
Jacky and Jeff came from England for the weekend. They are traveling for the first time to Vannes, “it’s much easier to come now that we’ve had the second dose. We no longer need to do tests or quarantine, Jacky reports. We came to France in May and the tests cost us around 230 euros each.”

Compared to 2019, Gîtes de France du Morbihan recorded an increase of more than 30% in reservations for All Saints’ Day. “We surf on a wave with an attraction for Brittany and Morbihan.
