Rochefort-en-Terre (Breton: Roc'h-an-Argoed) is a commune in the Morbihan department of Brittany in north-western France.

Rochefort-en-Terre is a designated “Petite Cité de Caractére”.

The medieval chateau located in the town was the home of American painter Alfred Klots. He purchased the chateau in the early 1900s and oversaw its restoration. His son Trafford Klots inherited the chateau and continued to paint there and entertain other visiting artists. After his death his wife donated the building to the French government.
