Brittany has an enormous variety of interesting places to visit whether you are interested in sporting activities, local history or simply relaxing on beautiful beaches. The stunning Atlantic coastline boasts many of the cleanest beaches in Europe with long sandy bays and secluded coves. If you enjoy taking a peak back into history you might like to visit Poul Fétan. It is a traditional Breton village dating back to medieval times, residents act out daily traditional crafts in historic costume.
Brittany is rich in archaeological sites and is home to the world famous standing stones of Carnac, just 30 minutes away. The region has many forests including the beautiful and legendary Brocéliande, where according to French tradition, King Arthur is supposed to have lived with his knights of the round table. A 20 minute drive will take you to the Château du Josselin set in the heart of a medieval town with its lovely gardens, dry moat and elevated towers.
I f you like art, 50 minutes drive will take you to Pont Aven, home to many of the impressionists. The town hosts a wealth of art galleries showing the work of local and international artists carrying on the artistic tradition of the region. The Bretons are very proud of their culture and hold regular fêtes, festivals and pardons. Throughout the summer open air concerts are organised where Celtic music is featured with live bands and all are welcome including children, to take part in the Breton dancing which accompanies these fêtes.
Well worth exploring are the many little islands of the Golfe du Morbihan. You can book day trips to tour the islands, for example Belle-Île-en-Mer and perhaps end the day sampling some of the world famous seafood from the region in one of the many fishing ports. If you prefer you can hire a boat and sail yourself around the coast.
