Welcome to Auray
Nestled in the hollow of the river Auray, this medieval city of character seduces at first sight with its lively town centre and the port of Saint-Goustan.
Auray in a few lines …
Auray was established in the Middle Ages at the foot of a ria, on a promontory where the construction of a castle helped protect its territory.
Auray through the centuries :
Two districts on either side of the castle. One at the foot of the fortress, gathered around the port and a chapel dedicated to the Saint Sauveur. The other behind the castle, concentrated around the crowd and the priory of Saint-Gildas. To the north of the town, the battle of Auray took place in 1364, which put an end to the war of succession in Brittany between Jean de Montfort and Charles de Blois for the dukedom.
The port of Saint-Goustan
In a ria of the Gulf of Morbihan, at the bottom of the river of Auray, nestles the charming little port of Saint-Goustan. This port owes its name to Saint-Goustan, the patron saint of sailors and fishermen. In the past, it was an important trading port.
In the 15th century, the port, located on the left bank of the Loc’h, took advantage of its assets and flourished to experience its heyday in the 17th century. The following century, withe the creation of the port of Lorient around 1665, the deployment of new road networks from Vannes were severe competitors. In 1862, the arrival of the railway, the deviation of the national road in 1865 sounded its last hours are so many elements in favour of the inevitable decline of the port. Many personalities have shaped the character of this fabulous port of Saint-Goustan. In 1776, Benjamin FRANKLIN was forced by the strong wind to disembark in Auray on his way to Nantes to ask France for help in obtaining American independence. He landed on the quay of the port, which now bears his name !

The benefits of Action Connect
Members can have access to quality business premises, with a high quality working environment and services. Internet access, wifi, secretariat, management, communication, daily newspapers, etc. My challenge is to offer the comfort of large groups while being independent for professionals who use teleworking or coworking. Another specificity is our location. Most of the time, this type of space is located in outlying areas. I wanted to set up in the town centre so that our members could easily access the heart of Auray or Saint-Goustan. This spirit allows us to be better integrated into the life of the town, to create a dynamic to be visible. And a seminar with 45 people can generate an interesting clientele for the shopkeepers around us.
