Saint-Marcel, France

Saint-Marcel is the name of many towns and villages around France, but this article focuses on a small village that lies in the Morbihan department of the country. At last count the village had a population of fewer than 1,000, so is not a destination for those seeking busy bars and a bustling town centre. This is a peaceful and traditional area of Morbihan, which offers its visitors rustic attractions and a chance to live life as a local for the duration of their stay.

Things to do in Saint-Marcel, France

Saint-Marcel has a small village centre that allows visitors to escape the beaten tourist track and immerse themselves in local tradition. Amenities are basic but adequate, and you will be happy to find cheaper prices than charged in some of the more tourist-orientated spots in Brittany.

The most notable landmark within the centre of Saint-Marcel is the Museum of the Breton Resistance, which focuses on the uprising of the marquis of the village (along with around 2500 men) in 1944. Saint-Marcel was a relatively important stronghold during the Second World War, and those that take the time to chat with the older locals will likely be told a story or two over a glass of the local wine.

Malestroit (3km) is the nearest village to the west, and can be reached by car in five minutes or walked in around half an hour. The attractions in Malestroit are largely the same as Saint-Marcel, with a small selection of friendly bars, authentic restaurants and family-run businesses. Malestoit also has the draw of a weekly market, providing you with the perfect opportunity to stock up the food supplies in your Saint-Marcel holiday cottage or farmhouse.

The village is very nice with many restaurants and a few bars. We had a fabulous time and would recommend.
