The Brittany region is made up of four "départements", each with its own rich personality:
Côtes d’Armor, famous for its magnificent, wild and unspoilt coastlines, such as the Emerald Coast and the Pink Granite Coast.
Finistère appeals to those who enjoy wild and rugged landscapes, with superb bays and headlands. This area is also proud of its traditional culture and its past, which it celebrates with folk festivals and the recounting of legends.
Ille-et-Vilaine home to charming seaside resorts and to the capital of Brittany: Rennes.
Morbihan, associated with delicious oysters and its many megaliths (large stones) which leave a curious legacy from prehistory.
Hoëdic, Houat, Belle-île, Groix, Sein, Molène, Ouessant, Batz, Bréhat… Each island has its own personality and very individual geography: creeks, coves, gold sandy beaches, cliffs, small traditional villages…
Le golfe du morbihan
An enchanting place where the land, sea and sky combine to produce constantly-changing and unusual natural vistas. There are about a dozen islands and intriguing megaliths to discover.
Carnac is an important site due to its famous "alignment" or rows of 3,000 menhirs (standing stones). To the south of its prehistoric monuments, the protection from a peninsula creates a special coastline – a bay with azur blue water surrounded by several kilometres of fine, sandy beaches.
The Quiberon Peninsula extends about 14 km into the sea, between the foaming Wild Coast, the flowering heathlands and countless secluded sandy creeks and coves.
BETWEEN THE LAND AND THE SEA, THE COTES D’ARMOR
