Things to do
NATURE & SPORT
Brittany is known for its beaches, which unfold between rocky outcrops of pink granite. Stroll the golden sands, brave the chilly Atlantic waters or explore oyster beds and collect clams along the shore. Outdoor activities abound in the Breton landscape; wander along the coastal paths to see wildflowers, bids and seals, or go walking in ancient forests further inland, discovering pretty villages as you go.
CULTURE & HISTORY
Venture deep into the heart of Brittany for a dose of history. Walled medieval villages dot the countryside along the former French border and are perfect for exploration. Dip into half-timbered riverside pubs and cafés, walk along ancient ramparts and narrow cobbled streets, or visit castles and cultural museums.
FOOD & DRINK
Coastal Brittany is the place to get your fill of fresh, local oysters, fish soup, seafood platters and steamed mussels. But the region is also known for its thin, sweet-filled crepes and thicker, savoury buckwheat pancakes, or galettes, both of which can be washed down with Breton cider – a sweet, sparkling apple wine.
