A few more questions about Brittany

Jump to last reply


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.
