Luxury Holidays to Brittany: An Overview

If a combination of cute coastal towns, beautiful beaches and romantic rolling countryside is your idea of the perfect summer getaway, then holidays to Brittany are just the thing. This hilly peninsula in north-western France is the perfect spot to slow down, unwind in nature and make time for simple pleasures, whether it's seriously good seafood fresh from the ocean, or tours around time-worn towns with local guides.

Brittany's coastline - at a whopping 700 miles, the longest in France - is undoubtedly one of the region's main calling cards. Lace up your walking boots for a hike along well-marked coastal paths, join local fishermen on boat trips (followed, of course, by scrumptious seafood lunches afterwards), and discover lonely lighthouses dotted on the cliffs (rumour has it, Brittany has the highest concentration of these iconic structures in the world).

If you can drag yourself away from the sea, there are historic towns; centuries-old chapels; and, of course, the vibrant regional capital of Rennes, known for its medieval half-timbered houses and grand cathedral. To give you a real sense of the region, we'll pair you up with local guides who will introduce you to the best secret spots and tell you the region's tales and legends. Come night, we can recommend the top tables in town to feast on fresh oysters and indulgent crepes, and wonderful hotels, whether you're after an authentic homey base or a more luxurious hideaway.
