At the centre of Western France, Rennes has a privileged location near the Mount Saint Michel and Saint Malo. Less than an hour from the Emerald Coast and the Gulf of Morbihan, near great fortresses of Brittany, the city is at the confluence of land and water.
From the elegance of the buildings of the Classical period, to the charm of medieval streets: the historic city knows no monotony. Yet in contrast to a museum city, it is full of popular shops, providing the opportunity to admire a remarkable architectural heritage, while indulging in the pleasures of window shopping and lazing.
Rennes seduces with its propensity to develop a collective and responsible mind set. Social cohesion and respect for the environment are longstanding priorities within a variety.
Lively and eclectic, the Rennes cultural scene meets all expectations, thanks to the high quality of programs and creativity, as well as the talent festivals which hold up its reputation. On the sporting side, the city has three professional clubs and is very proud to offer high class amateur practise with 50,000 certified coaches.
