Travelling in Brittany
What to do in Brittany ?
Composed of four departments between land and sea: Côtes-d’Armor, Finistère, Ille-et-Vilaine and Morbihan, the region of Brittany presents rich landscapes as varied as they are contrasted (beaches, bays, forests, marshes, fishing ports, medieval cities…).
The corsair city of Saint-Malo of the Emerald Coast, the Pink Granite Coast of the Côtes-d’Armor and the Breton islands (Groix, Bréhat, Glénan, Ouessant or Belle-Ile en Mer) are places not to be missed.
Discovering Brittany also means discovering its history and its legends through its historical monuments and its Celtic traditions but also its folklore, to the rhythm of its music and its gastronomy (cider, pancakes, kouign-amann, oysters and other sea products).
When to go to Brittany ?
The region of Brittany benefits from an oceanic climate and is characterized by low temperature variations. Contrary to popular belief, precipitation in Brittany is not worse than elsewhere and the region benefits from a good amount of sunshine.
If there is not really a best period to travel in Brittany, June, July and September are nevertheless the ideal months to discover the region, less frequented than July-August, the high tourist season.
