A road trip in Brittany is ideal for a stay in a campervan. Parking spaces are plentiful and available, but you can also easily park under a tree, on the side of a path or in the middle of the forest. The possibilities are limitless…
Departing from Nantes, head to Saint Nazaire to visit the submarine base as well as the coastline and its biodiversity. Don’t forget to see the ocean serpent on the beach of Saint Brévin… Then go to Guérande to discover the fortified town and the castle of Bretesche. The neighborhood is warm, we feel very good there! Stop for a meal at Maison Pavie. Take a guided tour of the salt marshes and bring a pair of binoculars to admire the different types of birds.
Then take the destination of Carnac, Celtic cradle, to observe its mysterious menhirs. The West coast is full of mystery and treasures, do not hesitate to also consult our atlantic road trip. Continue to Quiberon and Belle Ile en Mer. Take a walk on the Pointe des Poulains or the Aiguilles du Port Coton. Go for a walk on the side of the urban wall towards the Port du Palais, the Vauban citadel and the church of Locmaria about thirty minutes on the island.
Continue to the Névez region, to Kerascoët to see the atypical thatched houses. At lunchtime, opt for a picnic on the beach and reserve a table at a creperie in Port Manech for dinner. We recommend La Chataigneraie or Chez Jacky. Stop off at Morgat, to enjoy the beach, take beautiful souvenir photos and take an electric bike ride in the Armorique Regional Natural Park.
Then head towards Pointe Saint Mathieu. Go for a walk around the famous Saint Mathieu lighthouse, its architecture and the ruins of the Notre Dame des Grâces chapel. The abbey is also worth seeing. Continue to ,Roscoff an emblematic city approved as a “city of character”. Get some fresh air in the town’s exotic and botanical garden, then head to the Île de Batz!…a little architectural surprise awaits you on the beaches.
A 40-minute drive away, stroll along Gwin Zegal beach and the Plouha cliffs. At Cap Fréhel you will come across Fort de Latte, also called Château de la Roche Goyon, remarkable for its location: a rocky cape facing the sea. It is also the ideal place to observe the fauna and flora. Still on the road to Saint Malo, in Dinan, a medieval town, you can admire the alleys and roofs of the old town from the top of the ramparts.
Finish your Brittany road trip by descending to the fabulous bay of Mont Saint Michel, famous for its impressive tides. After a visit to the abbey, let yourself be seduced by the local gastronomy and specifically the famous omelettes of Mère Poulard. For the most dreamy, try Mont Saint Michel seen from the sky in a microlight!
