Brittany


A land of beauty, history... and crêpes, with ancient megaliths and a rugged, dramatic coastline to explore


BRITTANY, often compared to Cornwall, perches on France's northwestern tip and is a favourite destination among holidaymakers with a taste for adventure – and its many culinary delights. A quick dash across the Channel, it is easily reached via ferry ports such as Saint-Malo and regional airports including Brest and Dinard. So why pootle off to Brittany? Well, fi rstly it has more walking trails than any other part of France – the coastal path is especially popular – and there’s cycling and horse-riding on offer too. If you'd rather while away an afternoon lulling on the beach, padding through thick yellow sand or crabbing, look no further than the breathtaking Pink Granite Coast. Smattered with charming seaside resorts and secret


coves, this surreal rockscape of glistening rose-tinted crags, cliffs and misshapen boulders in the Côtes-d'Armor département is a natural marvel. Don't miss the village of Ploumanac’h, which lies amid this jagged littoral. Its mysterious megaliths – a fascinating

feature of Brittany’s eastern landscape – are the reason the curious travel to this ancient province in droves; not least to Carnac. The small town boasts the world's largest standing stone alignments – well worth the detour. For a mini-break to remember, why not take in historic Dinan? Stroll around its medieval streets fi lled with art galleries and craft shops, then head up to the ramparts that have spanned the centuries, before relaxing at a café on the port. Later, why not set off for a gentle kayak outing on the maritime Rance? You may even spot a seal popping up out of the water – this is Josephine, the local mascot! Of course, Brittany's rich culinary tradition, and equally rich specialities (the butter-laden but moreish kouign- amann springs to mind) are quite the draw. With a fl urry of restaurants and markets peddling scrummy fare, from galettes to the freshest seafood, you won't go hungry. And then there's the Breton islands, perfect for


escaping the stresses of the modern world. From Bréhat to Île-aux-Moines via Batz, Molène, Sein, Ushant, Groix, Houat, Hoëdic and Belle-Île, they all have different landscapes: hidden coves, pebbled beaches, stretches of fi ne sand, and an other-worldly, exotic feel. ■
