Brittany

Made of stone, water, wind and tides; built of faith, tradition, legend and superstition; home to sailors, navymen, fisherman, Celtic heritage, seawater therapy and granite-lovers, Brittany is one of France's most distinctive regions. Beyond its capital, Rennes, a drive along the northern coast of Brittany makes a traveler happy as a dog driven along Ocean Boulevard with his head out the window: the heaving tides and windcut rocks of the Emerald Coast (Saint Malo, Dinard, Cap Fréhel), the more distant shores of the Pink Granite Coast (Perros-Guirec, Trébeurden), then out to Finistère, where the land finally gives way to the ocean. The southern side of the penninsula is warmer, milder, with inlet towns and cities from Vannes to Quimper, via the point of Quiberon, and with attractive islands (Belle-Ile, Groix, Glénan) within easy reach by boat.
