Tourism in Brittany
Visiting Brittany on holiday
Welcome to Brittany! For those who have already had the opportunity to discover one of its many facets, the desire to see more is obvious. For the others, it is the curiosity to open the door to this territory a little out of the way, almost out of time that pushes you to us.
Brittany is a vast territory, landscapes with a thousand faces, a history that is still well established, a gastronomy inspired by its soil and the seas that surround it, the Bretons so Breton! . So let’s explore the north of Brittany!
Brittany is also a warm atmosphere through its fest-noz and its music festivals, some of which are among the most important in France (La Route du Rock, Les Vieilles Charrues, Les Transmusicales, Festival Interceltique de Lorient, etc).
In short… In pure Brittany, I could still write many lines about this region which is so dear to me but my objective when you come to l’Ile Verte camping in Ille et Vilaine will be to make you discover already the many treasures within a radius of 40 kms around the campsite. Drive along the Emerald Coast and fill your lungs with iodised air at the tip of Grouin. Discover Saint-Malo and its famous ramparts, then the walled city of the corsair city. Cross the Rance estuary to walk along the Dinard jetty. Before returning to the campsite, make a diversion to Dinan, a city of art and history with its fabulous half-timbered houses. In short, and believe me, there is plenty to do!
Places of interest in Brittany
After visiting the jewels of the Emerald Coast (Cancale, Saint-Malo, Dinard, Cap Fréhel), another equally beautiful stretch of coastline awaits you in its extension: The Côte de Granit Rose (Côtes-d’armor) dotted with seaside resorts and places of Posh resorts like Perros-Guirec and Pléneuf-Val-André.
To immerse yourself in Breton culture, Quimper’s visit is a must. A city of art and history, the capital of Cornouaille is home to an exceptional cultural heritage (Cathedral of Saint-Corentin, Church of Locmaria).
Visiting Brittany is also getting lost in the alleys of villages with stone and half-timbered houses like Dinan and Locronan (one of the most beautiful villages in France), ordering a seafood platter on the port of Concarneau or Guilvinec, crossing the Gates of the Cité de la Voile Éric Tabarly in Lorient, the historic centre of Vannes after eating a pancake with wheat or buckwheat, rent a boat to sail in the Gulf of Morbihan or go around the islands (Glénan, Ouessant, Groix , Belle-Ile-en-Mer), Discover beautiful medieval castles (Janjua, vitreous, ferns).
Finally, impossible to leave Brittany without a spa stay in a thalassotherapy center, a stroll in the forest of Brocéliande and a hike on the GR 34, a fabulous route called “customs Trail” that runs along the 2 000 km of Breton coasts.
