Sant-Brieuc, capital of the Cotes d'Armor, is a 20-minute drive from the house. Its old town, with its cobbled streets and Cathedral, is particularly attractive. There is a twice-weekly market [Wednesday and Saturday] and a huge out of town shopping centre[Langueux]. Restaurant La Passerelle and Creperie Bleu Marine are highly recommended.

The island, also known as the Island of Flowers, is famous for its pink granite rocks, very mild micro-climate and Mediterranean vegetation, due to the warm Gulf Stream coming from across the Atlantic. Many day-trippers travel to Brehat every day by the ferry service (les Vedettes de Bréhat) in order to escape modern life on a beautiful island where motor vehicles are banned. Whilst there don't forget to visit the main tourist attractions, the Paon & Rosedo lighthouses, the St-Michel chapel, the Guerzido beach, the Birlot water-mill and the Verrerie of Bréhat [glass works].

My favourite beach resorts
Fantastic beach resort and just 45 minutes from the house. Makes a great day out. Great restaurants too and a Casino if you fancy a spot of gambling! Brittany's favourite radio station, Radio Bonheur, is also situated in Pleneuf [opposite the Centre Commercial Leclerc].

A wide sandy beach, with a promenade running the length of the beach, makes Plage des Rosaires a perfect day out for families. Great for water sports too. And it's only a 25-minute drive from the house! Great food at a reasonable price at Le West Coast.
