Top Reasons to Go

Waterworld: Experience the extreme 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 wild isle: Venture down the untamed Quiberon Peninsula and catch a boat to rugged, unspoiled Belle-Ile-en-Mer, Brittany's wildest island.

Gauguin's Pont-Aven: A cité des artistes, Pont-Aven and 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: romantic, once pirate-ridden St-Malo and genteel, Edwardian Dinard.

Ancient wonders: Contemplate the solemn majesty of row upon row of menhirs anciens at Carnac, the "French Stonehenge."
