Welcome to Brittany 

 

Brittany is France's north westernmost tip, bravely reaching outwards to the Atlantic Ocean. It is a delightful area to discover and is well-served with ferry ports, making it easy to bring your own car from Ireland. For a home from home once you arrive settle in to one of our Siblu holiday parks in the region, Domaine de Kerlann, Le Conguel, or Les Pierres Couchées. Think Celtic culture, crêpes-cider-and-seafood, a mild climate and a stunning coastline. It’s time to pack those suitcases: let’s head for southern Brittany!

What to Expect from a Trip to the Region

 

Brittany offers a whole heap of activities and events for all the family to enjoy. Find out all there is to know about the world under the sea at leisure park-come-aquarium, Océanopolis (near Brest). Or for a less watery experience visit  Pont-Scorff’s beautiful zoo. Quirky Labyrinthe de Pont-Aven (with petting zoo) will keep your little ones amused for hours. Lorient’s Interceltic Festival is a great way to embrace Celtic traditions from around the globe, while the Festival de Cornouaille (Quimper) is a dynamic array of concerts, parades and demonstrations of all things Breton. There’s also Bonobo Parc nearby – a zip wire adventure park. And right next to the Domaine de Kerlann campsite, explore artists’ fishing village Pont-Aven – famous for its association with Paul Gaugin. The town is particularly lively during the Fête des Fleurs d’Ajoncs (gorse flower festival on August 1st), with Breton food, music, dancing and locals in traditional costume.

Brittany History

Castle picto
The megalithic complex at Carnac
This is the most famous megalithic complex in the region: it has been listed as a historical monument since 1889 and is known for the incredibly unique alignment of its stones. The two main sites alone (Ménec and Kermario) consist of almost 3000 menhirs spread out over almost 4 kilometres! The presence of menhirs, dolmens, tumulus and other structures bear testimony to the fact that this architecture dates from the neolithic period.
Castle picto
Puy du Fou
Le Puy is a historical theme park in Les Epesses where kids and adults can find themselves truly transported into stories and adventures from the past. The park is divided into separate attractions, providing live-action shows that re-enact several different historical periods. Marvel at the Medieval City, experience the Circus Games in the amphitheatre, or shiver at the sight of Viking warriors as they launch their attack on Fort de l’An Mil! The spectacular nighttime shows featuring armies of actors, costumes, fireworks, waterworks and image projections, performed against the backdrop of the chateau and lake, are also well worth experiencing.
Castle picto
Pornic
Pornic is a charming little medieval town full of history, including a tenth century castle and a number of megalithic structures. The bars and restaurants scattered along its pretty fishing port are the perfect place for sitting and sampling the delicious local cuisine.
Castle picto
Concarneau
To really get a sense of this walled city, you have to see Corncarneau from the old town. The medieval “Ville Close” is a fortified walled city on a long island in the centre of a harbour. Looking at it, you’d think it was a château sitting in water! You’ll definitely feel like you’re on holiday when you take in the view over the harbour, or why not go on a boat ride from the fishing port?

Brittany Culture

Culture picto
Lorient Interceltic Festival
Celebrate everything Celtic at this huge festival. Every August the town of Lorient welcomes over 700,000 visitors from around Europe, from Galicia to Scotland, to celebrate the cultural traditions of Celtic nations. It’s a treat for your eyes and ears, as performers get dressed up and provide full days and evenings of entertainment in the form of concerts, parades and dances.
Culture picto
Nantes
Nantes is located on the Loire river, and provides its visitors with plenty of activities that will please young children and culture vultures. Kids will be kept entertained at the Jardin des Plantes, which has a beautiful botanical garden decorated with whimsical animal topiaries and sculptures. Nantes is also home to the striking Castle of the Dukes of Brittany, which was the Breton residence of the French monarchy. You can explore this imposing castle with a guided tour. To learn more about the political and maritime history of Nantes why not head next door to the Historical Museum of Nantes?
Culture picto
Quimper
Quimper is the oldest town in Brittany, and is renowned for its rustic atmosphere. There are footbridges spanning the rivers throughout the town, timber houses and cobbled streets. We recommend visiting one of its stunning gardens, including the Le Jardin du Prieuré de Locmaria, and to go shopping in this town rich with merchant and maritime history. Quimper’s old town and maritime landscape have been well-preserved for all to enjoy its beauty.
Culture picto
Pont Aven
This small town is bursting with natural charm and beauty. Take a stroll through its charming streets packed with watermills, overflowing vegetation, rivers, and boats and discover the landscape that inspired Gaugin. Kids might enjoy discovering the town by 'geocaching' (tracking down ‘treasure’ containers via clues and references), or why not take a boat tour and discover the town from the water? If it's quaint French countryside you're after, you won't do much better than Pont Aven.

Brittany Nature

La Presqu’île de Crozon
The Crozon peninsula is the central point in the Finistère region, offering three different striking seascapes: the Roadstead of Brest in the north, the southern bay of Douarnenez, and the Sea of Iroise in the west. It’s a corner of paradise and it comes as no surprise that the presqu’ile has been named a natural reserve. You’ll have plenty of excuses to walk around and discover the creeks, rocky coastlines, and glittering water. You also won't be able to miss the imposing structure of the fortified Tour Vauban, a 17th century garrison and UNESCO World Heritage site.
fleur
The Gulf of Morbihan
The Gulf of Morbihan is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. It’s therefore not surprising that it is a hotspot for celebrities, who own many of the 42 islands. The cross-shaped Ile aux Moines and Ile Arz are a magnet for holidaymakers and provide plenty of opportunities for scenic walks and dips in the creeks and coves. The best way to enjoy the bay is probably by taking a boat trip, either around the gulf from Vannes, or over to the prehistoric island of Gavrinis, rich in megalithic structures.
fleur
Salt Flats at Guérande
Situated at the end of the peninsula, Guérande is a charming medieval village with magnificently preserved walled ramparts. What you might not know is that it is renowned for its 'fleur de sel' – a high-quality salt which occurs naturally in its square marshes. Guérande’s salt marshes represent a great part of this region’s heritage, and you can take a guided tour to find out more about how salt workers use traditional techniques to extract the 'fleur de sel'. Another exceptional way to experience the salt marshes and to discover more about the local birds and plant life is to take a guided walk at sunset.
fleur
Île de Noirmoutier
This island is a seaside paradise for lovers of nature. Noirmoutier is particularly well-known for its unique microclimate and for the salt water-wetlands that cover over a third of the island. There are over 25 miles / 40km of beach here, so water sports activities like sailing, diving, paddle surfing, land sailing, and kitesurfing are definitely on the cards. For some local French flavours, don't miss out on the oysters, shellfish, natural salt, turbot and, of course Noirmoutier's world-famous delicacy: “bonnotte” the world's most expensive potatoes.
