Things you might not know about Brittany

 

Brittany has its own language which is now used mostly by the older generations. Road signs are bilingual and schoolchildren can complete their schooling in Breton in "Diwan" schools. Breizh is a word you’ll see often in the region and is the Breton word for Brittany.

With its heavily carved coastline, it has the largest maritime façade in metropolitan France, between 2000 and 3000 km according to the method used to measure it. This makes it a wonderful place for sailing and boating.

Brittany has a long tradition of sailors, be it in the Navy, on merchant ships or in the fishing industry. This is still true today; Brittany is France's biggest fishing and shellfish region, producing more than half of all French seafood.
