Brittany is situated in the Northeast corner of France and is synonymous with beaches and family holidays.The sandy beaches there are ideal for babies and toddlers and there are a number of family resorts dotted along the endless and stunning coastline. Many of the seaside towns and resorts are lined with hotels and restaurants to suit all budgets; other hotels, gites and B&Bs lie tucked away at the end of little rural laneways in unspoiled idyllic locations.
Brittany’s most striking towns are the walled medieval cities that once guarded its borders with France such as Dinan, Vitré and the ports of St-Malo in the north and Vannes in the south. There are loads of castles and forts, particularly in the western more Celtic part of the region where older toddlers will be able to explore. There are also plenty of adventure parks, nature sanctuaries, gardens, zoos and aquariums. Brittany is also the home of the perfect crêpe, both sweet and savoury.
