Discover North of Brittany


Saint-Cast-le-Guildo welcomes you on its coast with preserved beaches and hiking trails in a landscape and a rich and varied heritage.

Saint Malo (about 24 kms)


A stone’s throw across the Channel, a weekend break in Saint-Malo is all about the good life: eating, drinking, shopping and sightseeing. A short hop across to Saint Malo is the ideal way to grab a couple of days’ respite. Breathe in the fresh sea air, maybe have a go a watersport on St-Malo’s glorious long sandy beach or walk barefoot to one of the town’s tidal islands.

Dinard (about 20 kms)


This chic seaside resort is all about the glamour of yesteryear with glorious villas, beautiful beaches and excellent restaurants. For the adventurous, use Dinard as a gateway to northern Brittany.

Dinan (about 24 kms)


Dinan is without doubt one of the most attractive and best preserved small towns in Brittany. With its 1.8 mile (3km)-long ramparts, half-timbered houses, attractive port and cobbled streets filled with art galleries and craft shops, it’s worth a day of anyone’s time.

Mont Saint-Michel (about 65 kms)


The world-famous island abbey may stand just across the border in Normandy, but much of the phenomenal World Heritage Site Baie du Mont St-Michel forms part of Brittany. Try out fascinating different ways to appreciate the Breton half of the bay, including some very surprising culinary routes.

Cap Fréhel et Fort Lalatte (about 18 kms)


Bracing walks, soaring cliffs, attractive beaches, stunning views over the Emerald Coast and the Channel Islands, a seabird reserve, an historic lighthouse and a fortified castle straight out of a story book – the wild and windswept area around the Cap Fréhel peninsula has got plenty to interest.
