Chateaux Wedding Event and Accommodation in Brittany

We have sourced many unsung heroes which we have coined “Escape to the Other DIY Châteaux” bed and breakfast, gite, wedding and special event venues in Brittany.  Due to their popularity most of the Escape to the Chateau DIY which have been featured on Channel 4 are booked well in advance; however there are many choices of beautiful venues.

Brittany conjures up images in your mind of wild coastline similar to parts of Cornwall and if this is the landscape you seek you will not be disappointed.  The image is of Château de La Roche Goyon in the Bay of St Malo (the Château is open to the public visitor information).  

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.

Getting to Brittany : This region is serviced by RyanAir, Flybe, EasyJet and British Airways, information
You can also hop on Brittany Ferries Plymouth to Roscoff or Portsmouth to Saint Malo.
