Messac

Brittany (LBO)

Base manager Loic Boulais welcomes you to Messac , the base is situated on the Vilaine River, and just a bridge away from the bustling town of Guipry on the other side of the river. The town houses some interesting local churches and has some lovely country tracks perfect for taking a walk and discovering the natural beauty of the region. Messac is also claimed by some to be the place where the abbot Vincent Cawiesel planted potatoes for the first time in France in 1771. Today the town is classified as a ‘green tourist station’ thanks to its excellent tourist and sporting facilities..
