Your holiday begins onboard your overnight ferry. Enjoy an excellent choice of bars, restaurants, shopping and live entertainment before retreating to your cosy en suite cabin for the night.
Day 2 Saint-Malo to Rennes
Arrive early into Saint-Malo and take a short drive to the lively university city of Rennes. Admire the half-timbered houses as you wander the medieval streets of the old town, marvel at the magnificent parliament building before relaxing on the lawns of the Thabor Gardens. Alternatively, perhaps spend an afternoon engulfed in Breton history at The Musée de Bretagne.
Day 3 Rennes to Quimper
This morning take a leisurely drive to Quimper, Brittany’s cultural center. As you drive through the beautiful Breton heartlands perhaps stop to admire the charming medieval town of Josselin. Still inhabited by members of the Rohan family a visit to the castle is a must. Stroll to the Nantes-Brest canal which offers a lovely setting, while the lively town square is ideal for a spot of lunch before continuing on your journey.

Enjoy a relaxed day exploring Quimper’s atmospheric old quarter, visit the impressive gothic cathedral, admire the fine paintings housed in the Musée des Beaux Arts or perhaps take a boat trip on the beautiful Odet River which runs serenely through the city.
Day 5 Quimper to La Pointe Saint-Mathieu
Say goodbye to the city and head north to the striking headlands of La Pointe Saint-Mathieu, near the pretty village of Plougonvelin. Explore the coastal footpath or spend a relaxing afternoon at your hotel, taking in the sweeping sea views. At dusk, admire the ruins of the former abbey which stands atop the cliffs, illuminated by the neighbouring lighthouse.
Day 6 La Pointe Saint-Mathieu to Saint-Malo
This morning depart for Saint-Malo, Brittany’s gateway town brimming with seafaring history, perhaps stopping en route to admire historical Morlaix or the pretty coastal town of Saint-Brieuc. This afternoon, enjoy the culture and history of the walled old town or simply relax and take in the fresh sea air.
