Please contact us about availability of this title


Cadogan’s half-Breton author takes the reader on a lovingly described tour of Brittany, through great cities and granite villages to dramatic headlands and isolated beaches. Full details of local markets and festivals encourage you to stray from the beaten track, while a section dedicated to the spellbinding Mont St-Michel gives a unique insight into this arresting ancient monument. Hand-picked, inviting places to stay and eat, easy-to-use maps, clear layout and rich cultural background detail combine with expert advice on everything from Neolithic ruins and old fortifications to Breton bagpipe music and delicious crêpes. Old Breton legends are interspersed with enticing descriptions of contemporary local life in a guide that is as revealing as it is reliable.
