Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Ile de Brehat, France, Your Home Away From Home

If the idea of a small, French Island renowned as a bird and wildlife sanctuary where cars are banned sounds like an ideal place for a vacation, then a holiday rental cottage in Ile de Brehat is just for you. This fascinating place is actually two islands joined by a bridge, and is often called the most beautiful part of Brittany. Summer is the most popular time of year for tourists from both mainland France and beyond, and self catering accommodation in Ile de Brehat is at a premium during this time. Booking well in advance is therefore essential.

Things to Do on Holiday in Ile de Brehat, France

Activities on the island are not as all-encompassing as other parts of France, but of course, its other aspects more than make up for this! The island is both small enough to walk from one end to the other within an hour, but also big enough to find a new walk every day. Bicycles are available to rent from the harbour if you would prefer to get around on two wheels. The beaches are always within easy access, and so sunbathing and swimming are all possibilities. Remember, however, that the water is a little cooler here than if you were on the Mediterranean!

Places to Visit on Holiday in Ile de Brehat, France

If you are on holidays in Ile de Brehat for more than a week, then you may wish to travel further afield, and see some of the attractions on the mainland. The immediate coastline on the mainland is known as the Pink Granite Coast, and is definitely worth time spent exploring. Inland, the medieval town of Dinard is a must see, with its 13th and 14th century partially timbered buildings and impressive walls. You can easily spend a day here, wandering through its cobbled streets and visiting the craft markets. If visiting the mainland, you may wish to hire a car in order to make the most of your time there.

Weather in Ile de Brehat, France

The normal weather that you can expect whilst on holidays in Ile de Brehat is one of a warm summer and mild winter. Certainly, it is not as warm as the Med, but average daily temperatures through July and August regularly peak over 20 degrees Celsius, making it warm, but not outrageously so. Rain can be an issue, and so go expecting a similar climate that you would to the south of England at the same time of year. During the winter, the average minimum temperatures rarely drop below 2 or 3 degrees Celsius. The island itself is much quieter during this time of year, with very few holiday makers, and just the three hundred or so residents.

Travel to Ile de Brehat, France

The Ile de Brehat is only accessible by ferry, and the journey from the mainland takes from between ten minutes and half an hour depending on conditions. An important point here to keep in mind, is that as there are no vehicles in the island, you should only bring what you can comfortably carry or wheel behind you. If travelling from the UK, you can drive and catch a ferry from the UK to France by landing at St Malo, Caen, Cherbourg or Le Havre. If flying, then Rennes (RNS) is probably the airport of choice, where Flybe operates routes from UK cities such as Birmingham (BHX) and Exeter (EXT).

Fabulous cottage in beautiful area perfect for 2 and a dog!

5 of 5
Very impressed with the quality of the cottage including all the decoration, interior & exterior. Extremely quiet and very pretty area with stunning coastal walks within minutes of the property. Nice touches were the milk water and wine on arrival although the cottage was extremely well equipped generally. We took our dog and the enclosed garden was perfect for him & the cottage was dog friendly in every way. Thank you Anne - we loved our stay & wished it could have been longer! Maybe next time!!!

Nice accommodation, ideal for what we needed, a 4 day stay at the start of the season. Everything on one level, several outdoor steps to reach terrace. Short walk to restaurants & bakers.
