La Ricardière is a charming bed and breakfast located in L’île de Groix, off Lorient, in Brittany.
If you are lucky enough you could get to Groix in Jean’s Intrepid sailboat or you can also take the ferry.
A few meters from the harbour is La Ricardière, which welcomes a very wide public, with quite particular facilities for the people with visual impairment. For the very good reason that Marie is born blind …
Here, it is all about good mood, sharing and wellness.
And then Groix looks like a land of the end of the world, that you will have the pleasure to discover by following the advice of Marie and Georges, for whom the island does not have secrets anymore : ecomuseum, craftsmen, rural walks, …
For the rest, the disconnection and the conviviality, everything is gathered !

Welcome in our place, La Ricardière!
We were delighted to welcome Justine and Mahery for our first HopTrip. We achieved with them a Hop-MOOC on the tourism and the visual impairment in order to help our counterparts to open their establishment to the people in situation of visual handicap.
We also have made quite a lot of explorations and experiments regarding techniques of sustainable development, that we will be delighted to share with futures HopTripers, and always in the good mood !
We would be glad to welcome you.
