  • Description
  • A saying goes that in Bretagne the sea and the country are enamoured with each other. According to the rhythm of the tides the sea penetrates deeply into the country. The 350 km long coastline “Côtes d’Armor” stretches in the north of Bretagne. The Côtes d’Armor” is home of sea birds, wild flowers and a varied and legendary history. You walk from East to West, following the ancient customs path from Goêlo coast to the pink granite coast, the “Côte de Granite Rose”. You are mainly following the coast but that does not mean that you won’t catch a glimpse of rural life: on the sea you find artichoke fields, a lighthouse between a village and the cabbage field, tractors on the fields, seaweed used a fertilizer and many other unusual views. Little coves invite to swim.

Highlights

  • Fishing port of Paimpol
  • Ile Bréhat, one of Brittany's loveliest islands
  • Granite Coast, so-called because of the colour of its rocks, one of the most beautiful stretches of Brittany’s coastline
  • Go for a swim out in the sea!
  • Taste food specialities: crepes, galettes, apple and pear cider and the reputed Kouign Amann
