Guide of Brittany - Tourism, holidays & weekends in Brittany

A land of legends that combines traditions and authenticity to wonderful effect, Brittany has built up a strong identity over time. Wild cliffs, rocky coasts, fern-covered moors, mysterious forests: the region's natural heritage is exceptional and draws many visitors every year, who come to enjoy its hiking opportunities. The mild, oceanic climate also has something to do with it, as do the joyful atmosphere of the place and its impressive built heritage.

Brittany is attached to its traditions and regularly promotes its cultural heritage at such famous events as the Lorient Inter-Celtic Festival, the Vieilles Charrues festival and the many fest-noz all over the area, as well as through its gastronomic heritage, with kouign-amann, crêpes and buckwheat pancakes, far breton, fish and seafood, and andouille de Guémené.

You're sure to find something you like in Brittany, so numerous are its tourist attractions! The coast, firstly, is brimming with natural beauty spots, like the Emerald and Pink Granite Coasts, Le Raz Headland, the peninsulas of Crozon and Quiberon or the Gulf of Morbihan. Off the coast, the islands of Groix, Belle-Île-en-Mer, Molène, Bréhat and Ouessant are true havens of peace that are ideal for rest and recuperation. Known for their benefits, the thalassotherapy centres dotted along the Breton coast have plenty to delight holidaymakers looking to relax and get back in shape.

And how could anyone resist the architectural attractions of Quimper, the typical character of the Breton villages or the picturesque charm of Pont-Aven? Yet Brittany is also about history and legends, with major sites like Carnac and its impressive megalithic alignments, the city of Rennes, Brittany's capital, or the famous Brocéliande forest where Merlin the wizard is said to have lived!
