A few more questions about Brittany

Jump to last reply

Hi,

We are all set for our trip to southern Brittany, which starts in two weeks. We have been invited to use a house in Rennes by a couple whose children we got to know many years ago when they summered here during two different summers. After our short stay there, we will be staying 6 days each in Pont-Aven and La Trinité-sur-mer and a final night at the Sheraton at CDG. We have our train reservations and our car rental arranged. I have made extensive files on restaurants, activities, and markets in the area. I think we are mostly set. However:

1) We used a Mi-Fi (Wi-Fi hotspot) in Apulia last year and found it helpful when we were out of range of Wi-Fi, particularly driving on unfamiliar roads. Have any of you used Mi-Fi in Brittany, and if so, what company did you use?

2) We found most recently that the Google Maps app has been the most accurate program for real-time directions, but, since we will be in France, have folks found Mappy or Via Michelin more reliable? Do they have apps as well?

3) We recently attended a wedding for a niece we're very close to, and I'd like to get a gift in Brittany. I know about Quimper dishes, but do any of you have any other suggestions for gifts in the perhaps $250 range?

Of courses, any other suggestions are more than appreciated.

Thanks,

-Margie
