Overview


In this abundantly illustrated guide, naturalist Dennis Furnell and his wife Ann introduce the reader to the ancient region of Brittany—rich in nature, wildlife, landscape, history, food, and wine. Four "departments" of Brittany are explored—Côtes d’Armor, a lovely area much influenced by the sea; Finistère, with its dramatic coastline; the small but varied Ille et Vilaine; and the beauteous Morbihan. A general introduction to the natural history, ecology, and human history of each place is followed by detailed introductions to the major sites. Highlights include the dramatic cliffs at Cap Fréhel; the nature reserve at Les Sept Iles; Le Park, with its country lanes, forests, wood valley, and wild heaths; and Cancale, renowned for its seafood. Written with enthusiasm and knowledge, this is an ideal companion for travelers and ramblers.
