Additional Information

The ancient name for Brittany was Armor, land of the sea, and it is undoubtedly this element that most influences the landscape and best captures the spirit of this distinctive region. From the rocky headlands of the northern shore, sweeping round to the sometimes wild west coast, to the gentle sheltered bays along the southern coastline, the sea is always an integral part of everyday life here. During the first few days of your holiday, you'll be walking along the magnificent paths that hug the northern coast. It's a landscape of pinky-gold cliffs, secret coves, deserted, heather-backed beaches and traditional Breton fishing villages untouched by tourism. It's perfect for exploring on foot and, at every turn, you're rewarded with fabulous panoramic views of the entire Emerald Coast. Heading inland, the route takes you along the banks of the River Rance and on through the majestic Hunaudaye forest. Highlights include the feudal Fort la Latte and the beautiful stone-crafted town of Dinan. In the Middle Ages, Dinan served as one of the main strategic strongholds of the Duchy of Brittany and much of her medieval charm remains today.
