Just a short distance across the Channel, Brittany is one of the most popular holiday regions in France and offers something for everyone. Along the beautiful and varied coastline of over 700 miles, you'll discover endless sandy stretches, secluded coves, and rugged rock formations.

Inland there's breathtaking countryside, historic towns and quaint villages waiting to be discovered. From seaside resorts like Dinard and Benodet to ports such as Lorient, and architectural gems including the regional capital Rennes, there are plenty of places to explore.

Enjoy Brittany's vibrant capital city of Rennes, the rich seafaring history of St Malo and the sheer elegance of neighbouring resort Dinard. Add the pristine medieval charms of Dinan, breathtakingly beautiful countryside, and even an enchanted forest, and you'll still have only scratched the surface of this region's delights.

Dramatic rock formations, fine beaches, glorious countryside, and a unique sense of identity mean that this part of Brittany is often compared with Cornwall. There's also the fabulous seafood, historic cities such as Brest, Quimper and Vannes, and the genuinely warm Breton hospitality to enjoy.
