A land of legends to discover
Having benefited from a strong Celtic influence, Brittany's history is made up of myths. From King Arthur to the forest of Broceliande, let your imagination lull you into discovering enchanting landscapes.
1. Megaliths at Carnac
Go to Carnac to admire the alignments of megaliths, among the most impressive in existence.
2. Paimpont Forest
More commonly known as the forest of Broceliande, which inspired the legend of the Knights of the Round Table. You may catch a glimpse of Merlin the Enchanter's shadow around a bend in a rock...
Brittany is also rich in islands, each more beautiful than the other. Fall in love with Belle-Île like Sarah Bernhardt, who owned a house on the Pointe des Poulains remarkable for its coves and steep cliffs.
4. Glénan Archipelago and the islands of the Gulf of Morbihan
Cruise for a few hours and sail between the many islands of the Gulf of Morbihan, including the famous Île-aux-Moines. Finally, don't miss the Glénan archipelago, whose waters are such a clear turquoise that it has sometimes been nicknamed the Breton Tahiti.
You can dream about 18th-century privateers during a walk atop the city walls.
Treat yourself! The delights of Brittany in your holiday rental
Brittany offers an exceptional setting for your next holiday rental. While your eyes will be spoilt for choice, your taste buds will not be left out. You are bound to find a crêperie not far from your cottage, ready to treat you to its specialities. Sweet or savoury, with salted butter caramel, ham or more original ingredients, the pancakes and galettes of la Potion Magique in Carnac, for example, will delight gourmets. Strolling the cobbled streets of Saint-Malo, the Grain Noir creperie with authentic, local and organic flavours is an excellent idea for lunch or a delicious snack.
But there are not only pancakes in Brittany, by opting for a holiday rental near the sea, you will have no excuse not to taste the Breton specialties based on fish and shellfish. Passing through Roscoff for example, the restaurant La Bonne Étoile is the perfect place to indulge in a platter of shrimp, lobster, oysters or a Breton-style fish dish. In Ploumanac'h, the restaurantLa Cotriade has made the specialty of the same name, its main asset. Cooked in the tradition, this Breton bouillabaisse is unmissable for all fish lovers.
The farmers' markets are a good opportunity to discover local specialities, while strolling near your holiday rental. In Dinard, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, take time to look around the stalls and end your morning with a traditional galette-saucisses accompanied by a glass of cider. The 16th century Halles in Questembert on Monday mornings, the fish market in Lorient, open every day, or the one in Saint-Renan (on Saturday mornings) with its 300 exhibitors, are all options for filling your basket. Then, all that will be left for you to do is to settle down comfortably at the table of your gite or your holiday rental to taste the foodstuffs skilfully chosen on the producers' stalls.
