Discover the charms of Brittany  13/12/2013

The region of Brittany is a popular holiday destination throughout the year for travellers from France and further afield.

Despite this, there are a few areas of the region that have managed to slip below the radar and are still well worth visiting if you're currently planning a camping holiday in France.

Here, we're going to provide a guide to some of the untouched treasures of Brittany.

Archipel des Glenan

Located around ten miles off the cost of Finistere, this archipelago of islands is, unfortunately, only accessible during the months but is well worth visiting if you get the opportunity.

The area is best-known for its sailing and diving schools, meaning it is an ideal destination for those who love water sports.

It is also home to a unique indigenous flower, meaning its also an attraction for nature lovers.


The Sein, located five miles of the Pointe du Raz, is perhaps the region's most unusual island, in part because it is completely flat.

The area is home to lots of interesting museums and there is also plenty of opportunities to take in the spectacular views by taking a leisurely stroll along the coast.


This is a beautiful, uninhabited island that you really ought to visit when given half a chance.

That's largely because it is home to one of Brittany's most impressive Neolithic site, a pyramid-shaped stone burial chamber.

However, the most noteworthy aspect of this site is that the interior walls are covered with some spectacular artwork. And to make matters even better, you can go on a guided tour of the island.

Thereafter, you may wish to head inland and enjoy the beautiful wildlife that can be found in the French countryside.

What's more, this is also a great place in which to enjoy a picnic with the family.
