If you are contemplating a vacation in the Brittany region of France, and wish to be surrounded by nature and unspoilt surroundings, then you should consider a holiday in Fouesnant.

Exploring other parts of the Brittany region is highly recommended during your holiday in Fouesnant. This region is rich in history and legend, with sites such as the Carnac megalithic remains, or the impressive cathedral in close-by Quimper. The regional protected d’Armorique park is also worth visiting, with its almost fairy tale feel to it, especially around the village of Huelgoat. Farther away, but definitely worth the trip, is the monastery set on an island of Le Mont St Michel. This is deservedly one of the most visited tourist attractions in France.

The other option is, of course, to fly, and the closest airport would be at Brest (BES). Flights come into here from Birmingham (BHX) and Manchester (MAN) via airline Flybe.
