Beautiful Brittany – a relaxing and rural retreat!

Brittany has an exceptional coastline with many golden beaches, pretty sandy bays, stunning rock formations  combined with charming fishing villages and islands - a remarkable historical heritage to be seen in the towns and villages and some of the finest prehistoric landmarks in the world - just a few of the reasons why so many people visit Brittany year after year!

Brittany is situated in north-west France with the English channel to the north, the Bay of Biscay to the south, and Rennes as a regions capital.

With 2000 kilometres of coast, countless islands and beaches, ports and historical towns there is a great deal to discover - much more than you can expect to visit in a fortnight! For the most popular coastal destinations in the region.

As the 2nd largest historical heritage region after Paris, Brittany has a wealth of historical interests. Trail through its fortified towns like Saint-Malo, its stunning Vauban’s citadel on Belle-Île, its best preserved medieval castle of Fougères or in its historic capital, Nantes, just a few of the many tourist attractions awaiting your visit.
It is quite challenging to single out the most outstanding sites but you should not miss the Unesco’s listed Mont Saint-Michel, close to the Brittany border, Guérande’s Salt marshes, the world renowned megaliths of Carnac, the stunning village of Rochefort-en-terre, a boat trip to the island of Belle-Île, and many more.

Sailing has always been a very popular activity in Brittany which hosts some of the best races in the world. All the main seaside resorts also have yachting clubs to hire equipment or have lessons. If you prefer water at a slow pace, you can always go cruising on the 600km of canals and rivers.

Brittany is one of the best places in the world to enjoy seafood. Try the famous “plateau de fruits de mer”, seafood platter or a bowl of moules marinières with frites. Simply join the locals at low tide for some seafood picking, a Breton tradition.
