Brittany is one of the most distinctive and beautiful regions in France with a unique character, intriguing history and 1,200km of dramatic coastline. Each year, over a million holidaymakers hop across the Channel to enjoy the stunning scenery, Breton lifestyle and charming hospitality.
The landscape in Brittany is diverse, with a rugged northern coastline, sophisticated beach resorts in the south and beautiful offshore islands to explore. Bordered by the English Channel and the Atlantic Ocean, Brittany is gently warmed by the Gulf Stream, giving it a very mild climate – perfect for outdoor enthusiasts. Enjoy the elements and invigorating sea air on miles of coastal paths – walk or cycle as you admire the surrounding scenery.

And of course, no visit to Brittany would be complete without sampling the delicious cuisine on offer. Specialities include seafood and crêpes – both can be washed down with a glass (or two) of tasty Breton cider.Details
