Today we’ll continue our travel to the north of France with Dinard and Rennes. First on our list is Dinard , a very chic summer and winter choice on the coast of Brittany. The place has many magnificent beaches, elegant constructions and is called the “Cannes of the north”.
Our second daytrip to Brittany starts also in Brest and continues with Huelgoat, Saint-Pol-de-Léon, Cairn de Barnénez and Saint Brieuc. Looking at the pictures we can say coming here was a very good idea. First on our list and our favorite is Huelgoat, a place that offers tourists many beautiful things to see.
Visiting the coast of Brittany represents an excellent anti stress therapy . This part of France offers something for everyone: large sandy beaches, ancient cities, castles, high cliffs, fresh air and good food.In this series of articles we will speak about some of the sites we’ve visited in Brittany.
Once known as a cityofpirates, the walled city Saint Malois today the perfect place for an authentic Breton experience. The sounds and smell of the sea, the high tides, the amazing food and atmosphere attract here many visitors. St. Malo offers enough sites to occupy most tourists for a few days, but one day is also sufficient to catch the main attractions of the city. There is no need for a car inside the city.
A few months ago, as I was preparing for our road trip to the north of France , I started searching the internet for information about the weather out there in April. We wanted to visit Lannion, Saint Malo, Mont Saint Michel, Fougeres plus a part of the Loire Valley and a good weather would have helped us.
If you want to see Europe largest fortress or if you are on your way to see Mont Saint Michel or the Loire Valley , you should definitely stop in Fougeres . It might help you to know that the city was visited and appreciated also by two famous French writers: Victor Hugo and Balzac , who found it to be a source of inspiration for their works.
The cost is definitely the main attraction in Brittany and many people choose to make daytrips and visit this area.The place is amazing in pictures but it is more amazing to be seen with you own eyes.Not even wintertime can affect the green color of the grass and all year long feels like just a long spring.
