Cheap flights to Brittany

Brittany is a diverse cultural region in the northwest of France. With a total land area of 34,023 square kilometres (13,136 square miles), Brittany is bordered by the English Channel to the north, the Celtic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Bay of Biscay to the south. It is subdivided into four administrative départements: Côtes-d'Armor, Finistère, Ille-et-Vilaine, and Morbihan. It also includes the Loire-Atlantique département with the city of Nantes. It covers the western part of Armorica. It received its modern name when it was settled by Britons. The region has also been referred to as Less, Lesser, or Little Britain (as opposed to Great Britain).

 

What to see & do

Brittany is an enthralling destination for explorers, with its awe-inspiring coastline, lush forests, and medieval towns. Some of its popular tourist attractions include St-Malo, Dinard, and Dinan; the little-known towns of Roscoff, Quimper, and Vannes; the coastlines of Finistère, the Presqu'Île de Crozon, and the Morbihan Coast. Enjoy a wide range of activities that you can do here. Not only the coastline between Morgat and Cap de la Chèvre is incredibly stunning, it’s also perfect for hiking and trekking. Explore nature and wildlife in Océanopolis, wander around the one-of-a-kind town château in Josselin known as Château de Josselin, and satiate your palate with plenty of sumptuous options like Chef Olivier Roellinger’s delicious meals at Le Coquillage, European gourmet choices at Le Mutin Gourmand, seafood dishes at Au Crabe Tamboure, French dishes at Le Balafon and La Saint-Georges, and excellent gourmet crêpes and galettes at Breizh Café. 

 

How to get around within Brittany

Although the major cities and towns of Brittany have rail connections, the interior routes are poorly served. The region has an extensive bus network, but note that services are infrequent, so allot more time if you’re planning to take the bus. The best way to navigate around is by renting a car or motorbike, which is also great if you’re planning on exploring out-of-the-way destinations. You can also opt to bike around, as cycling is very popular here. You’ll find bike rental places almost everywhere. If you’d like to tour via canal boat, you may contact the Service de la Navigation for more information.
