One great day out I can recommend… the Island of Bréhat (Ile de Bréhat).
From our gite in Brittany, it will take you about 1 hour and 20 minutes to drive to Paimpol. From there it will be signposted for Ile de Bréhat.
The boat crossings with the ‘Vedettes de Bréhat’ are every half hour and only take 10 minutes.
The island is famous for its pink granite, birds and beautiful flowers.
It will take you about 1 hour to walk round it unless if you stop at a café! On the way, you will see a chapel, water mill, light house, semaphore and stunning stone houses made of local pink granite.
The island has cafés, restaurants and shops.
On the way back, you could visit Paimpol and the coast up to St Brieuc. You will discover lovely sea side resorts.
