Nicknamed the ‘land of the sea’, Brittany is an ideal destination for a holiday to get your feet wet in France. Villas in Brittany by the seaside offer unforgettable moments appreciating this majestic landscape. This region of strong character and tradition has preserved the natural beauty of its 1820 km of coastline, with beaches of golden sand lapped by the Atlantic waves, providing a diverse range of activities on your French holidays. Visitors of all ages enjoy exploring this area, so you can happily stay at one of these French gites in a couple, with family or with friends.
Despite being known and loved for its coastal location you can also find numerous meadows, heather fields and forests near our holiday lettings further inland as well as golden, sandy beaches and infamous cliffs by the sea. Regardless of where your holiday home in Brittany is located, you will find monuments of architecture in their beautiful surroundings: old churches, chapels, fortresses and castles, historic cities, numerous megaliths and stone monuments that are reminders of the beginnings of Breton culture. Enjoy all of this in close proximity to our wide range of French holiday homes located across the region.
Because of the mild winters and warm temperatures in summer, the region is visited by tourists all year round. The beach season starts in May and finishes at the beginning of October. During winter you may experience strong gales are frequent in Brittany in winter, but after a brisk walk you can go home and warm up in your private holiday cottage in France. Fortunately, especially to the south of the region, sunshine exceeds 2000 hours per year. This makes holiday lettings by the beach particularly pleasant, but even in cooler climes, a breath-taking view of the Breton coastline from your French holiday rentals can be enjoyed by visitors wherever they are.
Renting gites in Brittany offers gourmet lovers the chance to try a vast selection of delicacies. Fresh fish, seafood (oysters, clams, lobsters, crawfish), fresh vegetables and tasty meat, everything comes from local producers and is the basis of the delicious regional cuisine. As with French cuisine in other parts of the country, the region is also famed for several regional cheeses, including the affectionately titled ‘Petit Breton’. Enjoy the food in one of the many local restaurants, or buy the fresh ingredients and cook a meal yourself at your very own villa in France.
Brittany is no exception to French culture, in that the region inherits a rich history of wonderful cuisine, music, art and language. However, its geographical position has also afforded this holiday home location some unique cultural qualities. You may hear a language, for example, that sounds unfamiliar to you during your villa holiday in Brittany. This is 'Breton', which is used by several hundred thousand inhabitants of the region, taught in local schools and even used on the radio.
