Mysterious, rugged and imbued with a mix of Celtic wonder and Gallic charm, Brittany, the most westerly region of France is the sort of place that even the most experienced traveller will find inspiring, given the plethora of tradition and sheer natural beauty to be found here.
All in all, it’s an enthralling concoction of stunning coastline (over 750 miles of it, about a third of France’s overall maritime frontier) ancient towns and castles (more than four thousand chateaux, manors and medieval homes) mysterious islands and inland woods.
Given its close connection to the sea, it also goes without saying that the opportunities for fishing and almost every conceivable type of water sport are endless, yet inland the countryside is unspoilt and those archetypal French villages with their traditional cafes and restaurants seem to be ubiquitous.
Brittany is also very much its own place. The people are proud and independent so although it has been part of France since the 16th Century Brittany retains many unique traditions to this day, including its own language, known as Breton.
