Brittany, an historic region with a distinct identity

Rennes is the capital of Brittany, a historical and famous region, bordered by the sea in the west of France. You will immerse with its unique culture, its legends (king Arthur and Merlin, the korrigans, the fairies…), its wilderness both on the countryside and on the coasts, its history (Celtic influence, fishery…), but also its delicious gastronomy (crêpes, galettes, Kouign-amann, cidre, andouille de Guéméné…).

For (small) city-lovers, Dinan, Vannes, Fougères, Saint-Malo will transport you with their typical architecture, harbours, ramparts, and unique atmosphere.

For nature-lovers, the amazing Cap Fréhel, Vallon de la chambre au loup, côte de granit rose, islands among many other beautiful places will make you feel in a dream. We listed some of the most interesting places in Brittany, which are both urban destinations as natural places.
