A photo from Brittany

The region of tradition and folklore. Music and the Feznoz parties. The magical coast of Brittany offer a very spectacular landscape. The charm and gentleness of the people, fine regional cuisine, cider, traditional costumes, language and Celtic influence makes this a very special region.

The dramatic coast lines, with cliffs, rock lined beaches and emerald waters are ideal for sailors, wind surfers and divers.

Old fishing ports are dotted along the coast, from where the boats used to set sail to "La Terre-Neuve (the Newfoundland) in Canada.

The shell fish and other sea food is excellent and abundant. Another very traditional dish from Brittany is the "Pancake".
