  • Tailor-made authentic hotel holidays to Brittany

    Luxury holidays to Brittany

    This extreme western part of France has been known as the Land of the Sea, as wherever you are in Brittany, it is never very far away.

    The sea continues to influence the way of life in Brittany as it has done for centuries and provides much of the charm and magnetism for the visitor with dramatic sunsets over the ocean, the excellent diet of fresh fish, breathtaking seascapes and authentic fishing harbours. There are both rugged cliffs and sheltered coves on the northern coast of Brittany where sea and land seem to merge into one as you pass around headlands and inlets and islands appear in the sea in the distance. On the southern coast of Brittany miles of soft sandy beaches are the right ingredients for a family beach holiday and mediaeval fortified towns are perfect sightseeing centres.

    Our selection of luxury hotels in Brittany are all located close to the sea with panoramic views of beautiful coastal scenery. Brittany is perfectly located for a self-drive touring holiday due to its location in northern France. Enjoy a holiday exploring Brittany's coastal scenery, or incorporate a stay in the region into a longer holiday in a different part of the country.

    Local highlights

    Sample the local gastronomy of seafood or cider. Festivals: Pardons -religious processions on Saints' Days throughout the year. The Breton costume is still worn on special occasions, see Nautical fashions, and experience the Folklore festivals.

    Travel arrangements

    Self-drive: Direct ferry services from Plymouth to Roscoff (6 hours), Poole to St Malo (8 hours), Portsmouth to St Malo (9 hours). Overnight crossings take longer. Or you can travel, perhaps overnight, from Portsmouth to Cherbourg or Poole to Cherbourg and then drive. Another recommendation is to travel Dover to Calais if you want a short crossing and then spend one night in Normandy on the way out and/or on the way back. By Air: We recommend flying into Nantes. It is possible to fly with British Airways (operated by GB Airways) into Nantes from London.
