Brittany Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Brittany

Waterworld: Will you prefer the coastal drama of the Granite Coast, with its crazy-shape outcrops, or the rippling waters of the Bay of Morbihan, snuggling in the Gulf Stream behind the angry Atlantic?

The isle gas it: Venture down the untamed Quiberon Peninsula to boat across to the rugged, unspoiled beauty of Belle-Ile-en-Mer, Brittany's wildest island.

Gauguin's Pont-Aven: A cité des artistes, its colorful folkloric ways helped ignite the painter's interest in Tahiti.

Unidentical twins: A ferry ride across the Rance River links two delightfully contrasting towns: ancient, once pirate-ridden St-Malo and grand, genteel, Edwardian Dinard.

Stone me!: Muse upon the solemn majesty of row-upon-row of anciens menhirs at Carnac, the "French Stonehenge."
