Brittany is a country it itself, proud of its ancient Breton language. It offers much more than just beaches (after the Cote d’Azur this is France’s most popular coastline). There are striking walled medieval towns like Vitré and Dinan, not to mention picturesque ports and islands such as Saint-Malo and Belle-Ile. The ancient monuments (‘Alignments’) at Carnac predate the Pyramids and the beautiful landscapes of Cote de Granit Rose make for the perfect road trip. Visit hidden gardens and belle epoque villas and explore the coast by private boat.
