When to come?

To enjoy the illuminations

The village of Rochefort-en-Terre is illuminated every evening from Friday, Decembert 1, 2023 to Sunday, January 7, 2024 inclusive.

This year, as in 2022, the illuminations are turned off 1 hour earlier than usual on weekends and 1.5 hours earlier during the week in order to participate in the collective effort in terms of energy saving.

The hours for 2023 :

  • Monday through Thursday and Sunday: from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. (instead of midnight)
  • Friday and Saturday: 5:30 to 11:00 pm (instead of midnight)

Given the high attendance on weekends,we advise privileging a visit during the week and planning to arrive in the afternoon on Saturdays and Sundays and during school vacations.

This will allow you to park more easily and enjoy the village more serenely, especially the stores and artists’ studios.
