Brittany, an important region for agriculture

In the countryside

 

Set in the heart of Brittany, in an area known as the ‘Pays du Roi Morvan’ (King Morvan country), Guéméné sur Scorff is a small town whose beautiful square oozes old world charm, lined with half-timbered and front gabled houses. Founded in 1050, this small medieval town became the stronghold of the House of Rohan in the 14th century, and then enjoyed a period of prosperity and was an important market town.

The surrounding area has a wealth of interesting religious buildings. But Guéméné sur Scorff is primarily known for its charcuterie tradition. The Guéméné andouille (pork tripe sausage) is probably the best in the world.

The name of this rural town also implies a riverside location; ‘sur Scorff’ refers to the town’s location on the River Scorff, undoubtedly the inspiration for many an artist. Not far away downstream, Pont-Scorff exudes all the authentic charm of a medieval town of character.
