Incredible natural environments; incredible coastlines; charming seaside towns; areas steeped in history and mystery - Brittany is a real holiday wonderland for everyone. From our hotel in Northern Brittany, anything is possible. From the Iroise Sea at the far west of mainland France with the islands of Ushant and Molène to Mont Saint-Michel on the edge of Brittany and Normandy, there are countless adventures to be had.
Just 1 hours from the hotel, the Côte de Granit Rose (Pink Granite Coast) is one of Brittany’s must-see destinations. With beaches, granite landscapes and coastal towns such as Perros-Guirec Ploumanach, Trégastel and Trébeurden, this coastal area is incredibly beautiful and truly enchanting. The colour is brilliant, as are the surprising eroded shapes, with multiple granite rocks emerging along the shore, creeks and islets making up this unforgettable coastline. Offshore, the Sept-Îles archipelago, a designated nature reserve, is a bird’s paradise. With more than 20,000 pairs of sea birds and 27 nesting species, it is the most important reserve on the French coast.
A bit nearer, just a few kilometres from Paimpol (30 minutes from the hotel), the Pointe de l’Arcouest is the point of reference from afar for the Île de Bréhat, known as the “Island of flowers”, where the scent of exotic fragrances fills the air.
At the other side of Saint Quay Portrieux is the Côte de Penthièvre. Stretching from Pléneuf-Val-André to the Cap Fréhel via way of the Cap d’Erquy and the town of Sables-d'Or-les-Pins, it offers superb beach and cliff landscapes. After the Cap Fréhel, the Côte d’Emeraude running to Cancale features Saint-Malo (home to the legendary privateer Robert Surcouf), Dinard, a number of small fishing ports, spectacular large waves (particularly in Saint-Malo Bay), landscapes with superb colours, as well as some delightful Breton cuisine to be sampled along the way.
