The region consists of four départements: Côtes d’Armor, Finistère, Ille-et-Vilaine and Morbihan. The Brittany region is directly accessible from the UK thanks to the cross channel ferry routes and their arrival ports of Roscoff and St Malo.

 

You can discover the diversity of Breton landscapes on foot or by bike along hiking trails and bike paths or along the Breton canals.

Unwind by participating in an aquatic sport, by opting to stay in a spa or visiting the Breton islands by boat such as Bréhat and Ousessant ( Ushant), or the archipelago of the Sept Îles.
