If you’re looking for a piece of beautiful French coastline then Brittany is the right spot for you. The region itself is a cluster of towns connected by cultural similarities. The region sticks out from the mainland making for some great beaches.
Food in Brittany
The food in Brittany has a really distinctive style. Oysters are popular in almost all of the restaurants, usually followed by the local pancakes or “crepes” which come with a large range of sweet and savoury toppings. If you’re looking for a local wine to enjoy with your meal then Muscadet is the tipple of choice. Here you’ll be able to choose from a host of different vineyards and vintages.
In most Brittany hotels and restaurants you’ll find the most impressive dish to be the “Fruits of the Sea”. Upon its arrival you’ll see why this meal is usually meant for sharing. The enormous platter consists of a host of crustaceans and shellfish from the local harbour, and can come either hot or cold. The crowning point of the dish is often a large crab or lobster that makes the meal look unusually big.
Thanks to the huge coastline you’ll have a number of beaches to go at. Dinard on the west side of Brittany is a town with spacious villas and an elegant casino, so it’s a great place to stay. Dinard beach is also renowned as one of Brittany’s best, with a loyal English and American fan base. Laber beach in Roscoff is a little different. This one is set just by the deep-water port so you will be able to soak in a true port town, complete with its own shipwreck.
Beach-side cottages can be a beautiful way to settle into your holiday in Brittany, and they aren’t uncommon all across the region. If you’re looking for something a little larger then hotels like the Hotel le Nouveau Monde make for an extremely romantic stay. Large rooms, double beds and beach views are all available at this stylish French hotel.
If you want to get some sightseeing done on your stay then the Hotel Oceania Saint Malo is not far from the Saint Vincent Cathedral. The hotel itself overlooks the bay and makes for a great family friendly environment on your Brittany trip.
