Brittany is France’s northwestern most region.  It’s a hilly peninsula extending out toward the Atlantic Ocean. It has a long, rugged coastline which is dotted with beach resorts such as chic Dinard and walled Saint-Malo (famed for its pirate history. The Pink Granite Coast in Morlaix Bay is famous for its unusual, blush-hued sand and rocks. Brittany is known for its abundant prehistoric menhirs which is a type of megalith) the most famous being Carnac.  The larger cities are Brest and the capital city of  Rennes.

The climate in Brittany is oceanic with cold winters and cool summers and winds off of the Atlantic throughout the year.  The west coast (Brest) sees lots of rain decreasing in Saint Malo and the inland areas. Least rainy season is the summer when average days of rain are 10-12 per month.

Events and festivals are plentiful in this region of France.  We found these informative What’s On in Brittany websites : the official tourism site and angloinfo and as you will see there’s something going on most of the year.
