Brits Head to Brittany

 


Visitors: 130

Whether you live there already or are considering moving to France you will probably be aware of the popularity of Brittany for both tourists and native French people. In fact, Brittany has a large British expat community.

Projecting into the Atlantic Ocean, the region is bordered on the north by the English Channel and on the south by the Bay of Biscay. During the winter it can be wet and windy! But summers are usually warm and sunny (bring a brolly for the showers though).

It is unique in terms of other French regions because of its Celtic heritage, with around a quarter of its population of 2.8 million being able to speak Breton, a Celtic language similar to Cornish. The coastline is similar too Cornwall as well!

Brittany holidays
Perhaps the most attractive thing about this area of France is the ease at which it can be accessed, particularly from the UK.

If you are hoping to move to France, but don't want to be too far from home, it is a good spot to pick and the activities and sights on offer will no doubt entice British friends over to enjoy a Brittany holiday. Brittany ferries regularly sail to Portsmouth, Poole and Plymouth as well as Cherbourg, Caen, Roscoff, St Malo in France and Santander in northern Spain. There are cheap flights into Brittany in the Summer season - making it ideal for long weekends.

Visiting Rennes
If you are feeling adventurous and looking for recreation , a trip to the bustling city of Rennes wouldn't go amiss, with its traditional Celtic museums and attractive restaurants.

Nearby is the popular tourist attraction of Mont St Michael, a small rocky tidal island in Normandy , roughly one kilometre from the north coast of France.

Tours of this sixth century stronghold are available on request and locals will agree that it is well worth checking out.
