Accommodation options for your holiday in Brittany
A Brittany holiday cottage is your door to culture, fun and coziness
Brittany is the westernmost region of France and is divided into four sub-regions: Finistère, Cotes d'Armor, Morbihan and Ille-et-Vilaine. With a classic Brittany gîte, you have the opportunity to explore the different parts of these sub-regions, depending on which of them you choose. Although each of them has its own atmosphere, Brittany is a destination that has everything in one place: beautiful beaches, historic towns, good food, plenty of opportunities to practice sports, activities for children and a lively night life.
Getting to your Brittany accommodation
Brittany is only a few hours west of Paris. There are a few airports serving the region that you can choose from depending on the proximity to your Brittany gîte. Visitors coming from Great Britain or Ireland also have the option to take a ferry into one of the two ports of entry.
Day trips around Brittany
Your Brittany gîte will be the perfect base for day trips into the surrounding cities, towns and countryside. You will have lots of interesting destinations to choose from.
Rennes, the capital of the region, has a vibrant art scene with contemporary works scattered through town and has some very impressive museums, such as the Museum of Fine Arts of Rennes. In Carnac, the thousands of neolithic megaliths are a mysterious location worth visiting, while its seaside resort offers relaxing spa treatments at the Thalassotherapy centre.
In Quimper, take time to stroll through the city centre, soaking in the atmosphere of streets filled with timbered buildings, explore the impressive Gothic Cathedral and visit one of the many shops selling traditional Quimper ceramics, which are handmade and hand painted locally for the perfect souvenir.
Of course, by choosing a Brittany holiday cottage, you will find yourself surrounded by sea, as the region is a peninsula and thus there are many superb beaches to choose from. The Emerald coast, surrounding Saint-Malo and stretching through 120km, has many pleasant beaches perfect for swimming, sailing and sunbathing. The town of Perros Guirrec has excellent bathing beaches, spas aplenty and casinos. The perfect combination: relaxing during the day will let you get ready for that added excitement in the evenings.
The famous Mt. St Michel, with its splendid abbey and fortified town sits atop a small mountainous island that is connected to the shore by a causeway. It is quite an interesting place and is surely worth a day trip. It's only around 60km from Rennes or 54km from Saint-Malo, in the neighbouring region of Normandy.
Self-catering in your Brittany gîte
After your arrival at your Brittany holiday cottage, it is time to get all the essentials. The region has three main supermarket chains: Carrefour, Intermarche and E. Leclerc. In addition, every Saturday one of the best farmer's markets in France is hosted in Rennes. This is the perfect opportunity to buy fresh, local and seasonal produce including seafood and stock up for the days ahead.
