Holidays in Brittany

Bretagne is the North West peninsula of France that is known by most people as Brittany, the home of many great beaches and plenty of tasty seafood dishes such as oysters. Located between the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay, the area is marked by stone cliffs and some grand monuments that are thought to date back to the Neolithic era.

The monuments themselves are something to take in, but there are plenty of other great reasons to consider jumping on a ferry and checking out the coastal area that welcomes thousands of tourists every year. Ferries are a great way to travel in Brittany due to the fact that most offer world-class facilities and allow you to see some of the best island destinations in France. There are other ways to travel into the region or course, but cross channel ferries are still one of the favoured options for UK visitors.

One reason for this are the varied buildings that mark the coastal line as they range from tiny houses to paddies to wealthy bay sides that are simply astounding. This is not even considering the amount of different activities that are available for tourists in Brittany.

The area is well known for its many high ranking golf courses including the famous courses of Val Andre, Nantes La Vigneux, La Baule, Dinard, and Saint-Laurent. In addition, many Britons also enjoy traveling to Brittany because of the many mobile home and camping opportunities that abound throughout the area compared to the rest of France.

Due to the great summer climate, Brittany is a wonderful location for a camping holiday and with some great campsites located along the coast you can easily find a great family location that offers beaches and access to plenty of other additional attractions.
