Brittany is situated in the northwest corner of France, it has an exceptional coastline; to the north long and jagged and to the south its more gentle with wooded river valleys and sandy beaches.

 

CONCARNEAU, twinned with Penzance, is a charming town on the Finistère Coast and has been an important fishing port for hundreds of years. The main attraction is the ‘ville close’, the old stone fortified town that dates back to the 1300’s. Its connected to the mainland by a bridge and here you’ll find a superb collection of timbered and gabled houses surrounded by flowers, all jostling for space in pretty cobbled streets.

The hotel overlooks Concarneau’s beautiful bay and from here on your free day explore this town at leisure or perhaps take a walk along the coast to discover sandy beaches, rocky creeks, the fishing ports and marinas, that make up this seaside town.

 

VANNES located on the southern coast of Brittany, is an attractive walled town with a fascinating history that dates back to the 16th century. As you wander through the beautifully preserved medieval quarter you’ll discover traditional half-timbered buildings, city ramparts, pretty gardens and old market squares. Its a joy to explore with something new around every corner!

 

DINAN is without doubt one of the most attractive and best preserved small towns in Brittany, with half-timbered houses, cobbled streets, ramparts and an attractive port. On market day the town square is packed with market stalls selling a variety of fresh local produce, leather goods and clothes. The town itself has an array of art galleries, craft shops and alfresco restaurants.
