Brittany is a great historic province of France, with an impressive Celtic heritage. They say this is the most “Atlantic” province of the country, and it indeed enjoys a beautiful warm climate. Here's what else a holiday in Brittany has in stock for you:
We cannot not mention as a most beautiful holiday attraction in Brittany the famous Mont St. Michel with its abbey, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the second most visited one in the country after Paris. Standing on an outcrop of granite in the midst of a flat bay, this place is surely one you will never forget. As for the most visited town in this region, we would have to say it is Saint Malo, the home of the man who discovered Canada, Jacques Cartier, and also a former home of adventures and pirates. Its historic center has a most unique architecture as well, and there is the aquarium you can visit from a holiday home in Brittany, the Cape Horn museum here and the castle, of course. Nearby: the historic town of Dinan, with its old streets, boutiques and old houses. Near Frehel, the Fort la Latte is a 14th century castle. See the greatness of this region in its amazing sights!
See the city of Brest, actually see the Oceanopolis when on holiday in Brittany: fifty aquariums that host more than 1000 varieties of fish and marine “creatures” from all sorts of climatic zones. If you're more of a plant “fan”, the Cornouailles Botanical Gardens is where you have to head over to. Josselin on the other hand is a town that hosts a doll museum, besides of course a stunning chateau and beautiful gardens. Vitré and its chateau are simply astounding as well, and a most visited place in Brittany. There are of course numerous events, concerts, etc. on the coast and inladn as well, i.e. the Lorient Interceltiques Festival in August, the Festival de Cornouaille in July, etc..
Spend a holiday in Brittany by the sea, there are more than 2700 km of coastline you can enjoy. There are sandy beaches as well as wild headlands such as the Pointe du Raz, the westernmost point of the country's mainland. There are footpaths here that allow visitors to admire some of the most stunning natural appearances, with the Atlantic waves that crash onto the rocks below. A must must see on a holiday in Brittany. Inland, the Monts d'Arrée are the highest part of the province, a beautiful one as well. A perfect place for hiking, cycling, horseback riding, etc. Also from a holiday park in Brittany you cannot miss a boat tour: either from Finistere, or from Morbihan (you can get to the Belle Ile en Mer, the largest island of Brittany), from Côtes d'Armor you get to the Sept-Iles, a nature reserve for sea birds. You can navigate the rivers too, such as the Rance or the Vilaine, etc. See Brittany from all angles!
There are numerous spa and wellness centers in Brittany, places that offer great relaxation, thalassotherapy being very popular in the area too. Check out Les Thermes marins de Saint-Malo, the Thalasso and Spa Roscoff, the Spa Oxygene and Mer in Concarneau and many others. From massages to pools, whirlpools and beauty treatments, relaxation will get a new meaning with every day spent in Brittany.
Brittany is a very diverse province of France, thus there are quite a number of things to see and do here. Visit Nantes from a holiday villa in Brittany, with its museums, the Château des Ducs de Bretagne, and other attractions. Check out the Morbihan Megalithic Sites, the rugged nature of the Île d'Ouessant and its lighthouses, enjoy a holiday at the beach on the Côte d'Emeraude in one of the many splendid resorts here. See the Côte de Granit Rose and its amazing rock formations. Hike in the nature parks, go cycling, paragliding, practice water sports, go horseback riding... Brittany is a neverending paradise of fun.
Given the beautiful diversity of the region, a family holiday in Brittany is a fantastic idea. Here's how: you get to see the Pleugueneuc, Château and zoo de La Bourbansais, Ille et Vilaine with all sorts of animal species. You get to go boating, hiking or cycling on the Nantes-Brest Canal, admire the astounding views on the Crozon Peninsula, check out the stylish resort of Dinard, go sailing and wind surfing in La Baule, stroll the historic streets of the fortified town of Fougères. This is Brittany, France for you!
The food in Brittany is very tasty, that's a fact. As in dishes you can sample, the seafood ones are a must, given that this region has a rather considerable stretch of coastline and the seafood is always fresh. The moules frites (mussels with fries) are delicious, and the delicious oysters should be tried too. A glass of Muscadet wine from the area of Nantes is often served with the seafood. The Far Breton dessert is very tasty, and other dishes that you should not miss are: the Palourdes (baked clams stuffed with garlic, herbs, etc.), Coquilles Saint-Jacques, Breton Cotriade, the lamb here, the crepes and galettes, etc.
Spend a holiday with your pet in Brittany at the beach or inland, there are plenty of things to do everywhere around here. Find a pet-friendly beach and enjoy the sunset together with your loved ones and your furry friend, hike in the inland mountains, take long walks. Barbecue in the evening at your pet friendly holiday home in Brittany and go cycling in the surrounding area during the day. Your vacation will be complete and worry-free.Points of interest, a “must see” list in Brittany:
