Description Page Pays-Bretagne
With approximately 1800 kms of coastline, etched with rivers and canals, Brittany is a region of unique, contrasting landscapes: dunes, cliffs, beaches, a smattering of islands, legendary forests and undulating farm land. Once an inspiration to great artists who immortalised its beauty in their paintings, today Brittany brings you land, sea, climate, culture and good food.
Water sports enthusiasts, hikers and gourmets all find what they're looking for. With its hundreds of natural harbours, well-known cultural festivals and invigorating coastal climate, Brittany is one of the country's most desirable destinations. It is one of the most popular regions for international buyers.
Brittany is well served by rail, air, road and sea networks. Daily TGV links from Paris and Brussels to Rennes deliver travellers in under 4 hours. Foreign airlines as well as several local airlines offer direct flights to Brest, Lorient, Quimper, Rennes and Saint Brieuc. The A11 motorway connects Brittany to Paris in three hours. Cross channel ferries from Portsmouth, Plymouth, Poole and Cork service Saint Malo and Roscoff.
Authentic, affordable charm
Home purchasers will be enchanted by the traditional local architecture. Whitewashed, half-timbered houses with thatched roofs; long, low sea-cottages, or grander homes, built from massive bricks or quarried stone and capped with slate roofs. Complement this with reasonable prices and purchasing your Brittany dream home can very easily become a reality.
