If you are lucky enough to be in Morbihan during the Christmas and New Year celebrations, a visit to Rochefort-en-Terre is a must. From the moment you arrive and see the town, you will be plunged into the magic of Christmas. Thousands of lights twinkle above the streets, and the craft shops compete to come up with the most imaginative window display for their creations. Take advantage of the opportunity to stock up on gift ideas and supplies. It is a chance to put together your Christmas and New Year's Eve menus, and play at being Father Christmas by filling your sack with original gifts "made in South Brittany". Who knows, as you turn a street corner you may even bump into that rotund gentleman in red whom children (and some grown-ups!) will be eagerly expecting on the night of 24 to 25 December.
