For a holiday with a difference, why not try Canal Boat Breaks in Brittany? This is an area of France which has managed to retain a lot of its traditions and even has its own language. There are festivals and celebrations taking place throughout the year and there is much to see and do for the whole family.
There is a network of canals across the region which means that if you have more than a few days to spare you will be able to visit many places. The Canal d’Ile et Rance cuts across the region and links the Channel to the Atlantic. On the way why not stop at the town of Dinan, a medieval town which is perched on cliffs overlooking the port.
Those on Canal Boat Breaks in Brittany can take the Canal de Nantes and Brest and visit the castle of Josselin, one of many in this part of the world, or cross the Corbinieres viaduct. You and your family can take a leisurely cruise through the forested area of Gavre and visit the town of Blain, which has a famous chateau.
Brittany is a very unspoiled area of France and the opportunity to cruise through the tranquil towns and villages should not be passed up if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life for a few days. The area is famous for its seafood specialities and there are many restaurants that you can try while you are on your travels. With this in mind, if you wanted to try fishing for some of these specialities yourself, there will be plenty of opportunity. For a relaxing evening with a touch of merriment, why not try the local cider? While you are out on your travels, the many cafes will also be serving the Breton crepes, which should be sampled while on Canal Boat Breaks in Brittany.
