Brittany is this month’s regional focus– and it’s an area particularly close to our hearts at French Connections. Most of us have enjoyed truly memorable holidays there and Izzy, the friendly voice of our owners’ helpline, is a native of la belle Bretagne.
The appeal of this westerly peninsula is a potent mix of peaceful, unspoilt countryside, a charming rocky coastline and a special factor that can only be described as soul. Like Cornwall, Brittany is Celtic country where ancient magic and myth abound, where you can sense the mystery and tradition. From the thousands of standing stones at Carnac to religious processions in local costume, from the Archangel Michael’s Mont St Michel to folk art and musical instruments, a visit to Brittany is a varied voyage of discovery.
