Organizing a European exchange program for your students allow them to live a rewarding experience, through a part of France History, in an exceptional maritime front.

Lorient and its region are full of History : whereas the Dutch East Indian Company already has a great part of the Indian Ocean business, Louis XIV authorized the creation of the French East Indian Company in August 1664 : so they have the monopoly on Asia and can make business by fitting the ships out. In June 1666, the city of Le Havre is already submerged by work, so the French East Indian Company moved to Port Louis, in the Lorient’s bay today.

Lorient is also well-known for the marks left by World War II, which tore Europe and the world up : the submarine base, blockhauss along the coast, submarines ( and the “Flore” can be visited), abri anti-atomique = non atomic shelter ??.

Lorient and its surroundings changed and adapted itself to a changing economy : today, the town can offer  to the youth interested by European exchange programs, internships in different domains such as engineering,  hotels, tourism, art, theater, events – Festival Interceltique for example- , bakeries and many others, and of course, water sports. Lorient can be proud of its range of companies specialized into water sports, from mechanism to research.

Organizing a European exchange program for your student also allows them to live in a beautiful region: kilometers of coast and beaches, ideal to do surf sessions, sailing… but also discover the south of Brittany: Guidel and its hiking trails or kayaking trails, Languidic and its agriculture, Pont-Scorff and its odysseum, Vannes and its old town, Concarneau and its closed city, Port-Louis and its citadel, Carnac and its standing stones (Menhirs).

Lorient is a contrasted area which opens the possibilities to do an internship in Brittany; welcoming persons will be caring your students to maximize their professional and personal experience.
