Overview

From craggy islands to isolated menhirs and chapels tucked among the boulders, the Cadogan Guide to Brittany leads you into this distinctive region's calmest corners and out to its wildest limits. It uncovers great cities -- corsair St-Malo, timberframe Rennes, pottery-filled Quimper and slave-trading Nantes -- and gritty granite villages; and meanders round the endlessly dramatic Breton coast, finding sandy family resorts, wilder stretches of windswept beach, and exhilarating coastal paths. The author, himself half-Breton, entertains you on your travels with tales of dragon-slaying saints, daring explorers, wicked women, drowned cities and the home-life of mussels and oysters.
