As your holidays in Brest would be situated right beside the sea, many of the city’s main attractions tend to focus on this. The self catering apartments in Brest will be very well-equipped with all facilities you could ever need for a perfect break away.

    Places to Visit on Holiday Brest, France

    The city of Brest really does offer a number of great attractions for you to visit. There are some great museums here, most of which are dedicated to the fact that Brest has always gained its wealth and recognition from the sea - after all, it is the second largest naval port in France. The Musee de la Tour Tanguy and The Musee National de la Marine de Brest are two popular examples for you. You should also set time aside to visit Brest Castle - which is where the city first started from hundreds of years ago. Tanguy Tower is another historically important attraction; alas, following heavy bombing during World War II, much of the city’s older architecture was lost.
