Fine sandy beaches, wild moors, immense cliffs of pink sandstone and emerald sea will plunge you into a poetic atmosphere. Breathtaking panoramas await you in this site of remarkable natural heritage. If you feel like it, take the GR34 hiking trail from Erquy and follow the wild coast. A few minutes from Cap Fréhel, explore Fort La Latte, also known as Château de La Roche Goyon, one of the most famous Breton castles and a listed historic monument.

Melt your partner's heart by planning a trip to one of the magnificent islands of the Côtes-d'Armor. How about making your biggest declarations on the most beautiful island in Brittany and the first classified natural site in France, i.e. the Island of Bréhat, renamed "the island of flowers"? This archipelago with its enchanting and legendary setting will dazzle you with its turquoise waters and colourful flowery landscapes. However, other heavenly islands in the Côtes-d'Armor are worth a visit. Among them, we advise you to escape to the archipelago of the 7 islands, the Milliau island, the Renote island and the île-Grande in Pleumeur-Bodou.

For a surprising Breton romantic trip, go to the Pink Granite Coast, a unique site in the world. Admire the time of an afternoon, granite rocks dating from 300 million years. Sculpted by the sea and the wind, they will surprise you with their improbable shapes. Don't leave without contemplating the lighthouse of Ploumanac'h (Mean Ruz lighthouse), also made of pink granite and located in the commune of Perros-Guirec.

Exchange sweet nothings during a sunrise or sunset as you return to the most beautiful viewpoints in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc. We recommend you to go to the Pointe du Roselier in Plérin, the Pointe des Guettes in Hillion, the Pointe de la Béchue in Pordic, the Pointe du Bec de Vir in Tréveneuc or the Landes de Lanfains. Famous for its high tides and scallops, your stopover in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc promises to be an emotional experience.

For an enchanting break for two, explore the narrow streets of Pont-Aven (the city of painters), Quimper, Concarneau and Cornouailles. Continue your stay for two by discovering Le Conquet, a seaside resort on the Iroise Sea, remarkable for its historic town centre and fishing port.

Take advantage of your visit to Finistère to taste one of the most famous dishes in Brittany: Kouingn-Amann. But to savour this delicious butter cake, we recommend that you go to Douarnenez, a seaside resort and also the capital of Kouingn-Amann.

Moreover, as you probably know, Brittany is famous for its crêpes and galettes. Enjoying delicious crêpes is good, but making them is even better!
