27th Mar 2013

Whether you’re on a camping trip or you’re in the area for other cultural attractions, Brittany has become one of the most popular European holiday destinations, for a variety of reasons.

A multitude of events are held each year in the Brittany region and there’s also a long and varied list of resorts, towns, cities and villages there that are enduringly popular. We’ve picked a few for you to consider if you’re considering Brittany as your next holiday destination.

Camping in Brittany
Brittany camping has been an eternal pull for tourists in France; the weather is simply perfect for camping in the summer. It has 800 miles of coastline offering bays, beautiful villages and lovely beaches that make it perfect for family holidays.

There are also plenty of themed children’s campsites that you can take your kids to, if you’re looking for something a little more fun for them.

Cycling holidays
Brittany is also ideal for those who want to grab a pair of wheels and ride around the gorgeous countryside. All you have to do is hire a bike and head over on the ferry from Plymouth, and then begin exploring the country.

You’ll see beautiful farmland and quaint little villages, old churches and cathedrals, lighthouses and of course, the stunning coastline.

If all the camping and cycling has gotten to you and you’re looking for something with a little extra kick, parachuting is an exhilarating option in Brittany. It’s definitely the best and most exciting way of enjoying the beautiful landscape and countryside there.

You’ll not only be able to get a bird’s eye view of the region, but you’ll be able to kick your adrenalin levels up more than a few notches. It’ll be something you’re not going to forget in a hurry!

Motor racing
If parachuting didn’t quite cut it for you, or you’re afraid of heights, motor racing might be more up your alley if you’re seeking thrills in Brittany.

The motor racing tracks cater to everyone, whether you’re a beginner or an advanced speed-fiend. They usually offer a range of courses and tutorials, so everyone’s happy if you go along with your family.

Walking trails
Of course, if parachuting and motor racing is too intense and all you were looking for was a bit of peace and quiet in the countryside, this is still possible!

There are numerous walking trail tours that you can take with the whole family, with tree climbing included for the kids if they’re looking for some additional fun along the way.
