BRITTANY: Brittany benefits from excellent transport links, with 3 main international airports, several smaller airports, ferry ports, and a high speed train network (TGV). Northern France is served by ferry ports such as Calais, Le Havre, Cherbourg and Caen all of which are in Normandy. Brittany has St Malo and Roscoff which are accessed via Portsmouth and Plymouth. Brittany has several airports such as Brest, Dinard and Rennes which are all served by the budget airlines.
There is a varied coastline with safe, sandy beaches and the spectacular Emerald coast, so there is much for everyone to enjoy with the seaside never being more than 40 minutes away. Brittany is a top tourist destination in France . The Breton peninsula has over 27 000 km of unspoilt coastline, with a superb mix of sandy beaches, rocky shores, fishing ports, and historic towns. There is even an idyllic inland sea called the Gulf of Morbihan, which contains more than 40 islands.
In this distinctive region there are 8 cathedral cities, fortifications, walled towns, towers, castles, and Neolithic standing stones to explore and enjoy.
Brittany is warmed by the Gulf Stream, so the winters are usually relatively mild, and the summers are nice and warm, without becoming unbearably hot.
Farmers and gardeners therefore benefit from a long growing season. Often described as the market garden of France, this is a very verdant area, not unlike Kent. There are no endless acres of vineyards or sunflowers but in their pace one finds a rich tapestry of arable fields yielding a huge variety of crops throughout the year.
The temperature does not have the extremes associated with other areas with snow rarely seen during the winter although cold enough to warrant central heating or open fires. Once described as being 3 degrees warmer than Cornwall will give you an idea of how pleasant this area really is.
Central Brittany retains its rustic charm, with peaceful villages and hamlets scattered throughout the agricultural landscape Culture and tradition play an important role to the Breton people who celebrate and guard their heritage with many festivals throughout the year held in national costume.
