A dream for adventurous sailors, holiday-foodies (of course, wine considerers!) and those seeking a blissful escape, Brittany is a brilliant destination. The region, with the English Channel to the north, is also home to a variety of spectacular, historic pieces, with over 2,900 protected monuments on offer, as well as some of the best sailing races in the world.

Sailing is a popular sport here (with the typically windy weather from being exposed to the Atlantic airstream), but with 600 kilometres of canals and rivers, visitors can choose a relaxing boat ride instead of a competitive water-chase on their break!
Of course, many choose Brittany for its relaxing beach days, bordered by dramatic shorelines. Kick back and relax across its white sandy stretches, enjoying the comfortable sunny days in the summer months. From large, bustling, family-friendly stretches to quiet, secluded spots, there’s a beach for everyone here. And with 800 islands and islets, you won’t be short of areas to explore, after a calming, scenic boat ride!
The region’s charming capital of Rennes is a popular destination here, with a history dating back to the Roman era. The capital is easy to explore on foot; make sure to visit the landmark 19th century Cathedrale Saint-Pierre and admire the magnificent Parlement de Bretagne. Why not take a guided tour here? Visit the beautiful Parc de Thabor, a relaxing green space which covers over ten hectares on the north-east corner of Rennes.
