Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Brest, Brittany, France your home away from home

Sitting on the western tip of the Brittany Peninsula in Finistere, Brest boasts an important port, home to the French Navy. Despite being almost completely rebuilt in the 1950’s concrete and granite style after being raised to the ground by Allied bombing during WWII, Brest has an undeniable charm.

The impressive 15th Century Castle which still stands over the city is one of the few monuments to survive the War in and around Brest. The castle is a fantastic place to visit upon your arrival in a Brest villa, as it provides a stunning panorama over the city, and also holds the fascinating Musee National de la Marine, depicting the history and artefacts of the French Navy. The Musee de Vieux Brest is a wonderful place to visit directly afterwards, as it depicts the town on the eve of WWII. The museum is easily found, being housed in the dominant Tower of Tanguy which stands on the bank of the River Penfeld.

The Brest Aquarium or Oceanopolis Marine Centre is a wonderful place to visit from a Brest apartment, villa or holiday home, especially if you are travelling with children. There are always a variety of marine animal displays, as well as an excellent 3D cinema.

The house was very clean, modern (and quite stylish) and had more than enough space for our family of 4. The area really is great with a big choice of lovely beaches - great to explore by bike. We also loved the village, especially the Boulangerie and La Mole! The shower was not very powerful and there was no BBQ when we were there (no real problem as we bought one) but otherwise the house was perfect for us. We would love to return.
