Break Free - 3 Nights for the Price of 2 on French Hotel Breaks
With the days getting longer and the weather warming up, now's a great time to get away for a few days. And between now and the end of March, holiday company Brittany Ferries is offering 3 nights for the price of 2 on hotel breaks at 46 hotels in Brittany, Normandy and the Loire. With this deal prices start from only £116 per person for a 3-night break, including 3 nights' B&B and return ferry crossings with a standard car.
The range includes hotels in bustling cities such as Vannes, Rennes, and Caen as well as in chic resorts like Deauville, Trouville and La Baule. There are also countryside retreats for a complete escape from it all, or spa hotels for those looking for a little pampering. Here are just a few examples of the wide range and great value on offer.
Hotel Arvor, Dinan. Brittany. Acclaimed as the most perfectly preserved medieval town in Brittany, Dinan is packed with half-timbered houses, tempting restaurants, and traditional craft shops, along with a delightful selection of cafes and bars. Tucked into a quiet narrow street in the heart of the higher town, the Hotel Arvor makes a convenient base. The building dates back to the 18th Century and was once a monastery, but now offers a cosy atmosphere and comfortable rooms. 3 nights B&B start from £128 per person based on two sharing a room, with standard car.
Hotel le Fer à Cheval, Trouville, Normandy. Just a short drive from Brittany Ferries' port of Caen, Trouville is a working fishing village with bustling quays, daily markets, and narrow picturesque streets, but it's also a chic family resort with golden-sand beaches stretching as far as the eye can see. The Hotel le Fer à Cheval sits in a quiet street just 100 metres from the beach and casino, and foodies will find plenty of good restaurants nearby. 3 nights B&B from £128 per person based on two sharing a room, with standard car.
Auberge du Centre, Chitenay, Loire. Angers, Chinon, Saumur, Chenonceau, Amboise... The Loire is famous for its fairytale chateaux, and with dozens of the most impressive within a short drive, this auberge makes a good base. The ivy-covered frontage, on a pretty village square, conceals a comfortable hotel with simple bedrooms, a shady terrace and a locally-renowned restaurant with picture windows facing the beautiful garden. 3 nights B&B from £134 per person based on two sharing a room, with standard car.
All these breaks begin and end with a relaxing cruise across the Channel on one of Brittany Ferries' services from Portsmouth, Poole and Plymouth to France. The ships are stylish and modern with comfortable bars and lounges, renowned cuisine prepared by expert French chefs and fine service from an attentive crew - so the journey is very much part of your break.
