Bretagne (or Brittany,
) positioned in far northwestern France, is the country's #1 agricultural and fishing region. It's a popular resort and vacation area (especially summer and fall
) because of its rugged Atlantic Ocean and English Channel coastlines, quaint little harbor towns, historic lighthouses, sailing and windsurfing venues, white sandy beaches, and for its authentic and enchanting maritime culture.
The French flock here on their summer holidays, and they're joined by other travelers, and for very good reason. Beside the unique ambiance of the Bretagne Region, local attractions include Iles d"Ouessant, the walled town of St-Malo, the stunning abbey on nearby Le-Mont-Saint-Michel, and the prehistoric monuments at Carnac.
