Brittany

Overview

With its 1,700 miles of coastline, Brittany is one of France’s most regularly visited regions and most popular seaside holiday destinations. It is a region rich in history, cultural identity and Celtic tradition that dates as far back as the Neolithic Era and the Dark Ages. It enjoys good ferry and air links with the UK and is the perfect self-drive touring destination. Fine hotels, all offering exquisite gastronomy, from the freshest seafood to the traditional crèpe washed down with Breton cider, in an unspoilt region where breathtaking scenery abounds.

 

Dinard

Since the mid 1800’s, Dinard has been the place to be seen for international high society. It was France’s top seaside resort and played host to the aristocracy and nobility of the time. It is the ideal spot from which to visit Mont St. Michel and the awe-inspiring Emerald Coast.

 

Southern Brittany

Brittany’s south coast has an altogether softer and milder coastline than its northern counterpart. Highlights include the beautiful Gulf of Morbihan, the walled town of Vannes, harbours of Pont Aven and Concarneau, the Megalithic Menhirs at Carnac and the seaside resort of La Baule.

 

Côte de Granit Rose

Brittany’s northern coast is rugged, wild and dramatic and the most beautiful stretch is the Côte de Granit Rose with its charming fishing ports such as Paimpol, Treguier and Lezardrieux, islet-studded creeks and winding coastal paths.

 

Brittany Ferries

Britanny Ferries offer the following routes to Brittany and Normandy:

  • Portsmouth to Caen, Cherbourg and St. Malo
  • Poole to Cherbourg
  • Plymouth to Roscoff and St. Malo
