Ille et Vilaine, Brittany
Posted by Sandy Moody on Saturday, May 16, 2009
Brittany has the longest coastline in France and therefore there are miles of unspoilt sandy beaches. A coastal footpath makes it almost possible to walk the entire length from Mont St Michel in the North to Saint Nazaire.
Inland Brittany is less well trodden that its coast and the beautiful countryside is full of history, heritage and legends. Take time to explore the diverse landscapes of farmland, woodland, rivers, canals and lakes.
Why Brittany ?

Brittany has a lovely mild climate and offers a host of activities.
The coastline is diverse, from rocky crabbing beaches to the famous Point Du Raz to soft fine sand.
Our beautiful campsite is just outside the traditional, medeival town of Quimper, offering you an abundance of local wares.
There are lovely market villages nearby all well worthy of a daytrip, such as, Concarneau, Pont L'Abbe, Locronan, Benodet and the artists paradise of Pont Aven. All uniquely beautiful in their own way.
For children as well as our active 4* campsite and local beaches, you will find a zoo, sea-life centre, wild-life walks, paint-balling, theme parks, mini-golf, bowling, go-karting, adventure parks, boating lake, indoor swimming pool and lots, lots more. Most of the above is within an hours car ride away.
We feel it's an ideal place for either a relaxing beach style holiday or as fun and action packed as you can make it. There really is something for everyone in Brittany.

Brittany is the bit of France which reaches out into the Atlantic, and it is an area that is very distinct from the rest of the country. It is a place of contrasts, a fasinating mixture of spectacular coastline and ancient towns. The people are Celts, sharing much of their culture with that of Cornwall in England and of Wales and Southern Ireland. Their ancestors built standing stones and passed on their myths and customs. Legend has it that King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table gathered in the Forest of Paimpont and that Merlin is buried close by. Traditional Breton costume is worn at all the festivals, especially during the annual "Pardons". These religious festivals celebrate local saints and include a procession, enlivened by traditional Breton music played on traditional instruments. As a land surrounded by sea, seafood is abundant. The succulent lobsters and langoustines, the mussels and oysters make any visit to Brittany a gastronomic delight.
