Discover a different France in Brittany

Brittany has a special place in the heart of many a traveller. Once you've been, it rarely lets you go. It's easy to see where the nostalgia comes from, what with wild, wave-battered lengths of jagged coastline merging with wide bays of bisque-coloured sand, with medieval keeps soaring atop hearty Breton bistros where platters of crepes and crab are the norm. Towns like Saint-Malo, ship-spotted Brest and regal Rennes all entice with tales of seafaring and statecraft. Rugged Finistere is a hiking, sailing magnet. Primeval Morbihan is steeped in ancient history. Brittany holiday rentals are a ticket to the lot.

Brittany is wild to the hilt

Brittany is a veritable playground for outdoorsy types. You can charter a boat and bounce over the wild Atlantic swells, taking in the gorgeous bays of Finistere as you go. You can lace up the hiking boots to wander endless swathes of sand dune or wind-buffeted clifftops. Wetsuits are needed to ride the waves of the west coast, where rollers crash into the Crozon Peninsula and Pointe de la Torche. Camping is plentiful and so are wholesome seaside towns where promenades drop down to sparkling beaches ripe for those sandcastle maestros.

A history of its own

Brittany holiday rentals in Saint-Malo could be the perfect introduction to the rich past of this northern cut-out of France. They sit shrouded by the soaring turrets of a fairy-tale chateau and endless ramparts that hint at the old pirating history of the place. Moving on to Rennes, there are more regal sights with fine art museums and neoclassical Rennes Cathedral heading up the itinerary. Tales of great maritime battles and seafaring adventurers meet in Brest's Musée National de la Marine, while darker moments in Europe's 20th-century past are chronicled at the Musee Memoires 39-45.

Dodge the rains in Brittany

It's a good idea to organise any family holiday to the gites of Brittany for the summertime. There are bound to be more travellers seeking out Brittany holiday rentals then, but the months of June, July and August do guarantee the highest temperatures and – crucially – driest days. Winter, early spring and autumn can be prohibitively wet in this oceanic region, meaning you'll need to be sure to pack the waterproofs if you intend on coming anytime between November and March.

Coasts on all sides in Brittany

Brittany sprouts from the north-western corner of France. It's surrounded by ocean on 3 sides, so it's hardly surprising that it's famed for its long and beautiful coastline. The cap of the province is the much-vaunted Finistere department, a land of rock-ribbed inlets and soaring cliffs where the full force of the Atlantic meets the land. The northern stretches of the Cotes-d'Armor are much tamer, offering sailors a haven with boulder-dotted bays and medieval port towns. Inland, the vistas are taken over by the low, forested hills and winding riverways typical of the Ille-et-Vilaine region.
