Where to see in Brittany
For a summer break in Brittany visit the vibrant resort of St Malo (the home of the historic Corsairs pirates). This town has wonderful harbour side architecture and a welcoming party atmosphere with performers and entertainers lining the streets and the nearby restaurants and bars offering al fresco dining.
The beautiful walled town of Dinnan, upon the River Rance, is a must see for those who appreciate preserved Medieval features. Take a delightful guided boat ride or hire your own small motor boat for a full day out on the river. Nearby the enchanting La Fôret de la Broceliande (Merlin’s Forest) is where locals consider the tales of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to have originated.
Enjoy a spot of retail therapy in the splendid beachside town of Paramé. This lively destination has some wonderful shops and boutiques as well as the Caravelle Bar that looks over the beach serving delicious cocktails in impressively large glasses. Other quieter Brittany towns worth a visit are the sleepy town of Becherel, Bazouges, which is popular for its art and sculpture and Cancale, famous for its oyster farming and fresh shell fish.
Wherever you stay in Brittany be sure to indulge in the Breton food and drink. As well as the fresh shellfish you will find menus presenting crepes or galettes and a popular hearty stewed pork and dumplings dish.
