“Brittany is great for first timers to France with short driving distances from the ferry ports. Breton parcs are always geared up for Brits with fantastic animation, excellent pool complexes and boasting a “Breizh” holiday attitude.”
HOLIDAYS IN SOUTH BRITTANY
Bustling market towns, traditional fishing ports, Medieval villages, ancient stone circles, and obelisks are dotted all over this magical Celtic corner of France. It's historic, rustic, and a sun drenched destination with a very real charm about it.
Beautiful Brittany truly caters for all tastes and has a wonderful laid-back pace of life, a near relative of our own Cornwall but without the crowds. While camping in south Brittany hunt down a local festival, such as July's Fête de la Cornouaille which is Brittany's biggest celebration of Breton culture. For the more active, seek out some of Europe's top (and uncrowded) surfing and bodyboarding beaches and head for South Brittany's most thrill-a-minute family parks Des Menhirs and La Grande Métairie.

This medieval town retains its charm of the old city with its cobbled streets and half-timbered houses. Visit the picturesque riverside Port de Saint-Goustan for cafés and excellent seafood and don’t miss the Biscuitier Chocolatier just before the bridge.
Brittany's probably most famous for its cider (which has its own appellation d'origine controlée) and of course is the perfect accompaniment to its equally famed crêpes or galettes - wonderful sweet or savoury pancakes packed with anything from seafood to apples and fruit.
France's version of Lands End. The country's most westerly point spectacularly lashed by the might of the Atlantic. It genuinely feels like the edge of the world. Stunning!
