When to Go

The tourist season is short in Brittany: late June through early September. Long, damp winters keep visitors away, and many hotels are closed until Easter. Brittany is particularly crowded in July and August, when most French people are on vacation, so why not opt for crowd-free June or September? Some say early October, with autumnal colors and crisp evenings, is even better and truly makes for an invigorating visit. But if you want to sample local folklore, late summer is the most festive time to come.
