Explore the most beautiful parts of Brittany from Brest
Brittany and its coasts are full of remarkable places, unusual towns and villages and highly touristic monuments!
From Brest, you already have many circuits and emblematic places to visit at the wheel of your converted van.
The Brest Museum of Fine Arts, the famous Océanopolis aquarium in Brest (which houses over 1000 marine species), Fort Montbarey, the National Maritime Museum in Brest or the Motte-Tanguy Tower… And while you’re in the area, visit the magnificent island of Ouessant and its most famous monuments and museums!
Once you’re back on the road in your van, don’t forget to visit the Bay of Morlaix, a major tourist attraction in the west of France, if you’re in the mood for some culture and history!
And if you’re more of a hiker, take advantage of your time in Brittany to discover the GR34, the French favourite long-distance hiking trail, which allows you to discover the Bay of Morlaix on foot.
Do you want to get some height? Then park your camper van and explore the Monts d’Arrée ridges. You won’t be disappointed!
And why not take advantage of your van to venture south? Head for La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Oleron, Ré or the French Basque coast in your fully equipped motorhome or combi. You’ll be amazed!
Discover Finistère at your own pace in a rental van
If the tip of Brittany is full of extraordinary places and wild landscapes to discover, you should know that some big cities and their surroundings are not to be missed under any pretext!
Park your van and visit the old town of Quimper and the emblematic Saint-Corentin Cathedral for an impromptu trip back to medieval times.
You can then spend the day in the earthenware museum or the Fine Arts museum, the Halles Saint-François de Quimper or take a break in the sublime gardens of the city (the Peace garden, the gardens of the Château de Lanniron or the garden of the Retreat).
And if you feel like disconnecting from the city, park your van and go for a walk in the Stangala gorges or challenge yourself on the ascent of Mont Frugy, to enjoy a superb panorama of the city.
You can then get back on the road and discover the most beautiful beaches of the region, the dunes of Tréompan, the Plage de l’île Vierge in Crozon and the Presqu’île de Crozon, the beaches of Bénodet, Ile Tristan and the Plage des Sables Blancs in Douarnenez, the Pointe du Millier, the island of Groix (opposite Lorient) or the Plage de la Torche… And all this at your own pace!
Brittany in a vehicle: gastronomy, crystal clear water and fest-noz
Would you like to discover the most delicious Breton specialities? Take advantage of your trip in a rental van to visit all the gastronomic destinations of the region and taste the tasty strawberries of Plougastel, the famous galettes of Pont-Aven, the kouign-amann of Douarnenez, and the famous kig Ha Farz!
You can then take a break in front of the ocean on the Pointe de Crozon or in the Gulf of Morbihan and admire the view with a full belly!
By going on holiday in a van or motorhome, you can also follow the most famous races and regional festivals: the Route du Rhum (between Guadeloupe and St-Malo), the Vendée Globe, the maritime festivals of Douarnenez, the 24H du Mans further east…
You can also take advantage of your hire car to immerse yourself in the culture of the region’s festivals and fest-noz: the Vieilles Charrues in Carhaix, the Festival du Bout du Monde in Crozon, the Hellfest in Nantes, the Petites Folies in Lampaul-Plouarzel, the Astropolis in Brest… There’s something for everyone!
After these colourful musical events, get behind the wheel of your van to drive up to the north of Brittany to the superb Pink Granite Coast, and finish your journey in St-Malo, on the Pointe du Grouin, on the beaches of Normandy or in the direction of Mont St-Michel.
