Best things to do in Brittany

Tucked up in the north-west corner of France, Brittany is a treasure trove of Celtic legend, scrumptious food, and friendly, no-nonsense people who are fiercely proud of their cultural identity. With a long history of druids, knights, musicians and seafarers, it’s brimming with character and folklore.

Being a peninsula, Brittany is largely bordered by the sea, so wherever you go, you’ll never be far from a beach. Beautiful scenery and a mild climate make it a great place to visit.

Wide open spaces, endless beaches and deliciously simple specialities like crêpes and cider make it ideal for a relaxed and uplifting getaway.
