This Year’s Must Visit Attractions in Brittany
Just across the English channel, Brittany is one of the most popular places for tourists to visit in France, with a beautiful coastline filled with plenty of things to do and see.
For those who enjoy being a bit sporty when they’re away from home, Brittany has some of the most picturesque golf courses in France. Some 33 of them are plotted along the seaside, but don’t be fooled into thinking they’re all the same; there are all kinds of landscapes for golfers of different abilities. While some of your party may be keen golfers, others may like to soak up some sights.
Brittany’s pretty Côte d’Armor is just a stone’s throw away from the Thomson Al Fresco Château de Galinee parc, and the area itself is full of delights for the history buff including quaint little harbours, and half-timbered buildings from the 14th century. There are the very old rock formations at Carnac to see too.
Brittany’s coastline is a big attraction to walkers and there are plenty of coastal paths dotted with old forts and relics from the Neolithic age so get ready to breath in all that fresh sea air. However, if thrills and spills of a more direct nature are what your family desires, why not take them to the white knuckle experience that is Fôret Adrenaline? Or there’s the Oceanopolis maritime park at Brest.. Brittany puts on different festivals for each season. In summer visitors can be swept away for the Festival de Cornouaille (July); an event which celebrates the arts, while spring visitors can appreciate the St Yves way of life during Gouel Erwan (May).
Brittany is an ideal location no matter what you like doing on holiday, as sport, relaxation, amusements, history and shopping are all on your doorstep. And with the Château de Galinee parc set in the middle of it all it’s a brilliant place to spend a holiday.
