Brittany, land of mysteries and legends

less than a minute reading

Maritime region situated on the western tip of France, Brittany enjoys a mild and humid climate all year round, with winds that can sometimes turn fierce. Its fishing villages, medieval fortifications and towns, craggy coastline (including the magnificent Côtes d'Armor of pink granite), parks and nature reserves make it a favoured destination for lovers of tranquillity. It played a major role in France's history, from ancient Gaul to the Hundred Years' War. Brittany is a region of legends, appearing first in the Arthurian legend, then serving as location for numerous fairy tails and fiction novels.
