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.
