Brittany’s vast shoreline makes up a third of the country’s coast, stretching out to France’s most westerly point. Distinctive craggy rocks frame hidden coves, and miles of quiet beaches offer an alternative to the bustle of southern coasts and make Brittany a popular destination amongst travellers of all nationalities, people here are renowned for their friendliness. The more remote western region is still visibly influenced by ancient Breton culture. Many people still wear lace headdresses and speak Breton, a language that bears greater resemblance to Welsh than to French. The Celtic influence is still strong here, and the revival of interest in the Breton language has given birth to many local festivals celebrating this unique enclave of France. In contrast the east is more typically French and is home to the regional capital Rennes. There are also the pre-historic standing stones at Carnac, the fortresses at Josselin, Vitré and Fourgères. Sweet and savoury crêpes are a delicious speciality of the region, along with the north’s typically strong cider. The fine aquariums at Vannes and the walled town of St Malo are entertaining diversions for the children.
