Brittany: The Northeast
Occupying a large peninsula in the northwest of France, Brittany lies between the English Channel to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south. During the Dark Ages, the Britons were pushed south across the English Channel from Great Britain, after which the Brittany region remained a Celtic duchy for over 1,000 years prior to its annexation to France in 1532. Today, a deep Celtic tradition remains. Brittany boasts a fascinating mix of spectacular coastlines, ancient fortified towns, hidden inlands, and wooded areas to explore.
