Cheap flights to Brest
Holidays to Brest take you to a part of France that is unlike any other. In fact, you could say it is more like Britain, and given the region we are talking about is called Brittany, that’s hardly surprising.
This is a place steeped in Celtic heritage, with its own language, its own bagpipe-style music and a charming array of village festivals and street fairs.
A place with more than 1000 kilometres of dramatic rocky coastline, it’s dotted with swathes of sandy beaches and age-old fishing villages. And what’s more, it’s pretty popular in the old tourism stakes, drawing in the crowds with its trendy holiday resorts, ancient cafe-lined cities and a countryside packed with castles, manor houses, chapels and rolling forests.
Go and see "Noël pour Tous", which will be at Brest Arena on 6-17 December. The Christmas-themed circus spectacular includes trick horse riders, acrobats, clowns, elephants and illusions. brest-metropole-tourisme.fr
The Musee de la Fraise (Strawberry Museum) traces the history of this luscious fruit in France, throwing in a dose of local culture and some fab recipes for good measure (Rue Louis Nicolle, Plougastel-Daoulas, musee-fraise.net).
Creativa, on 23-26 October at the Parc des Expositions, showcases creative hobbies from jewellery-making to scrapbooking, origami to painting on silk, and everything in between. The show also offers numerous drinks and food stands. brest-metropole-tourisme.fr
