Our journey to South Brittany starts from Nantes airport.

After having collected our luggage and picked up our rental car, we set out to the discovery of this wonderful land that will no doubt result into an unforgettable experience for you.

You’ll encounter unique landscapes of rare beauty and enjoy an ideal climate, never too hot, never too cold.

Brittany’s medieval towns, rich with history, will take you back in time. For sure, one of the great pleasures of this journey is the “cuisine bretonne”, which abounds with fish and meat dishes and fresh vegetables, too. It goes without saying, you’ll taste the famous crêpes and buckwheat galettes.

On this tour of South Brittany, you’ll visit both seaside resorts and historical towns and villages, together with archeological sites. You’ll set foot on the Isle of Gavrinis, explore extensive fortifications on the sea and admire the small town of Pont-Aven, which was of inspiration to Paul Gaugin. You’ll be inspired by Guilvinec, the most picturesque port in Brittany and reach Pointe du Raz, on the edge of the world.
