SETTING OF OUR CHORAL WORKSHOPS

The Gulf of Morbihan
Our choral workshop takes place every summer in Arradon, 6 km away from Vannes, in the Gulf of Morbihan (Brittany - France).
   
In Arradon, amongst hydrangeas and hundred-years-old trees, each road or path leads to the gulf. Strolling along the coastal paths, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful bays in the world.
