Brittany, an attractive country

Brittany Brittany is an interesting and attractive country to explore, especially during spring and summer.

Thrusting defiantly west into the Atlantic Ocean, Brittany's coastline incorporates peninsulas, rocky inlets and cracked granite cliffs that simultaneously defy and succumb to crashing waves and brisk winds. Inland, exposed moorland conceals sheltered, wooded valleys interlaced with rivers and streams.

In Brittany, the sea is not far : hardly 150 km separate the north and south coast. This maritime situation gives it the healthiest of the oceanic climates, with a soft and wet winter and a summer in the temperatures rather moderate. This moderate climate favors a vegetation so varied as colored which gives to the landscapes this particular light to which were sensitive so many painters and poets. Because of the climate is mild over the year, you can find flowerish gardens.

Attentive to the protection of its natural areas, Brittany was so able to offer to his visitors an intact natural heritage, for most great pleasure of the walkers. It affects not only the coast but also the inside of the country; for example, the Armorique Natural Area (Parc Naturel Régional d'Armorique) covers 172 000 hectares (of which 60 000 in the sea), from islands of the Iroise sea (la mer d'Iroise) to the Monts d'Arrée.

To protect the flora and fauna, seven nature reserves were created in the region Brittany, occupying a total surface of 2400 hectares. So, off the Pink Granite Coast the nature reserve of Seven Islands Natural Reserve (Réserve naturelles des Sept-Iles) shelters an important colony of puffin monks and other species, among which the gannet, the petrel, the crested cormorant and the guillemot of Troïl.
