Travel Guide to Brittany Province in France

Brittany has a warm, temperate climate. Rainfall occurs regularly, which is a major factor in helping to keep its countryside green and wooded, but sunny days without a cloud in sight are also common to this region. 

Brittany is most famous for its megalithic monuments, which are dotted all over the peninsula, and the largest alignments can be found near Carnac, yet the purpose of these monuments is still unknown!

Brittany Province of France

And with the climate as it is, plus the vast areas of countryside, it is no wonder that so many tourists come to the area each year and enjoy the scenery with walking and cycling being very popular activities.

Saint-Malo itself is a well-known and popular tourist attraction due to the fact that it is a fascinating walled city steeped in history.  Yet it is also an important port which links Brittany with England and the Channel Islands.

The island of Ushant is the north-westernmost France, and marks the entrance of the English Channel.

Brittany is also known for its calvaries, which are elaborately carved sculptures of crucifixion scenes.  These can be found in the churchyards of small towns and villages all over Western Brittany.

There are also numerous places to visit, such as castles, museums, parks and gardens within and around the cities of Nantes and Rennes and Rennes itself is known as a city for its history and the colourful timber houses which are a must to see.

This is an area with so much to see and do, that you will never have a day of boredom, in fact, you will probably run out of time whilst on your holiday in France!
