Steep Coast of Brittany

Ragged cliffs and rural life.

A saying goes that in Brittany the sea and the country are enamoured with each other. According to the rhythm of the tides the sea penetrates deeply into the country. The 350 km long coastline “„Côtes d’Armor“ stretches in the north of Brittany. The „Côtes d’Armor“ is home of sea birds, wild flowers and a varied and legendary history. You walk from East to West, following the ancient customs paths from Goêlo coast to the pink granite coast, the „Côte de Granit Rose“. You are mainly following the coast but that does not mean that you won’t catch a glimpse of rural life: on the sea you find artichoke fields, a lighthouse between a village and the cabbage field, tractors on the fields, seaweed used as fertilizer and many other unusual views. Little coves invite to swim.

Steilküsten der Bretagne
Sehr abwechslungsreich, viele wunderbare Eindrücke - Blumen, Felsen, Meer - die Gastronomie war sehr entsprechend - die Kategorie A hat sich besonders in Perros-Guirec sehr ausgezahlt - das Wetterglück (an 5 Tagen viel Sonne) hat auch beigetragen zu einer wunderbaren Reise.

Großartige Landschaft - faszinierende Inselwelten
Der Modulaufbau war sehr gut und wir konnten unsere Bedürfnisse anpassen, d.h. auch mal mehr wandern. Die Ausflugsempfehlungen (Sept-îles, Ile de Bréhat) waren sehr gut. Die Route war sorgfältig beschreiben und die Varianten zum GR34 machten Sinn.

Küstenwanderung in der Bretagne
Die Streckenführung war wunderbar und die Hotels sehr schön gelegen. Ein landschaftlicher Hochgenuss und eine kulinarische Gaumenfreude - besonders außerhalb der Halbpension. Der Transfer funktionierte perfekt und sehr pünktlich.
