BrittanyFrance

Situated in western France, Brittany is a world apart that will win you over with its unique history, its wealth of culture and its staggering landscapes.

The Breton peninsula is a unique region of France and besides its breathtaking landscapes and seascapes, it also boasts exceptional culture and heritage.

The region still has remnants of its Celtic origins, such as the spectacular Carnac stones, arranged in countless rows of menhirs, or the many cairns found all over Brittany. You can also delve into the region's more recent history by visiting the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany, in Nantes, the Parlement of Brittany in Rennes or even the superb fortified town of Dinan.

From the Pink Granite Coast to the Pointe du Raz and the Gulf of Morbihan, you'll be amazed by the magnificent Breton coast. No less impressive is the forest of Brocéliande, the site of numerous legends, which offers exceptional walks and unmissable landmarks. The region is surrounded by a large number of islands, most of which are open to the public via a short boat ride, offering you more superb vantage points. You can also stroll the flowery streets of Bréhat or enjoy a bike ride on the aptly named Belle-Île-en-Mer.

Brittany also boasts a rich and varied cultural heritage. It offers numerous culinary specialities, such as kouign-amann cake in Douarnenez, cotriade (fish stew) or the ubiquitous crêpes and other galettes, or savoury pancakes. The region also celebrates its traditional culture, including music and dance, with numerous events throughout the year. You can watch traditional dancers and musicians in costume, who attend the Festival Interceltique de Lorient, which is held every August.

Brittany is very easy to get to: Rennes and Nantes are two hours from Paris by train, and several lines serve the main communes in the region. The region also has several national and international airports.
