My first impressions of Bretagne

July 25, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Couple of weeks ago I finally made my first trip deep into French Brittany otherwise more known as Bretagne. Previously I had been to places such as Le Mont-Saint-Michel, Dinan, Saint-Malo etc. but this time I made it all the way to the furthest point of the wild and exotic corners of the finistère. My wife and I stayed in a chambre d'hote near the plages de Brignogan called La Maison Bleue  www.maisons-bleues.fr   where our hosts Kristen and Luc were super cool and I will definitely go back for a visit. From this local you are close to so many sight seeing places that you will need some days to explore. 

For a photographer the landscapes are absolutely sublime. You may not always have the sun on your side but the landscapes make up for it.  I have to also add the people in the region are very warm and receptive. Travelling around Bretagne I found so many different types of landscapes that my finger hardly ever left the shutter button.

Another thing that really impressed me again were the people and the connection they have to there rich culture. One of the places I visited where I learned a bit ( in a pub over a pint...or two) was a commune called Huelgoat. Hearing people speaking in old Celtic tongues was quite interesting, I even learned a few words myself that I will not even attempt to try and spell. The places I have mentioned are just a couple of the places I visited, there is so much to tell that if I continued it would become a short story, one thing for sure is I will be returning more often.

If you are planning an up coming travel in France I highly recommend le Bretagne and if you are interested in having a tour guide I'm totally open to that.
