region of legends and myths
and… fell in love!
Brittany is a land of
Ancient villages of timber framed, stone houses,
Lush green fields, forests,
valleys, winding rivers and peaceful canals…
Pink Granite rocks on the coast line and beautiful sandy beaches…
fascinating Menhir from the coast to inland Brittany.
Over 4000 of these megalythique monuments can be seen in the region
bearing witness to a bygone civilization.
Explore ancient churches with their low steeples,
beautiful stained glass, Low arched doorways..
And wonderfully cool floors due to the water flowing beneath
A haven from the sun in summer.
See the traditional dress including the Bigodine, the magnificient
hats reaching up toward heaven, worn by Breton women to declare their
Not to be missed, the Fez Nos are a great opportunity to mix with the
Traditional music and dancing fill the village and market squares
throughout the summer.
Why not finish the day with a Breton pancake made with traditional
black flour with a cup of locally produced cider or Sea-food galore?
Go on, Be Breizh! You won’t regret it…
