Brittany by Rail May 2013

Five nights from £629 per person.

You'll love this tour if you like:

  • Dramatic coastal scenery - the Cote de Granit Rose is beautiful
  • Pre-historic monuments - Carnac is cloaked in mystery
  • Distinctive local character - Brittany retains its unique customs and traditions
  • Ancient abbeys - Mont-Saint-Michel is spectacular
  • Fortification - the many castles and walled towns highlight a fascinating history

Occupying an isolated peninsular jutting out into the Atlantic, Brittany is culturally and geographically distinct from the rest of France and so offers a glimpse of unique cultures and traditions, along with a blend of glorious coastal scenery, quaint towns and mysterious pre-historic sites. This rewarding tour will give you a taste of the real Breton character from ancient sites such as Neolithic Carnac, typical towns including Dinan and Dinard, majestic castles like Combourg and Normandy’s Mont Saint-Michel and dramatic scenery, the pink cliffs of the Cote de Granit Rose being of particular note. Based in the lively regional capital Rennes, your lovely central hotel is housed in the old printworks of the Ouest France newspaper.
