Northern France is redolent with reminders of some of the bloodiest events of the 20th century. Increasingly Kiwis are drawn to its D-Day landing beaches, to visit battlefields that are the last resting places of soldiers from the 1st and 2nd World Wars. Travel onto Brittany to explore ancient walled cities, dramatic, rugged geography and inland woods. The picturesque coastline has been an inspiration for many artists.
Brittany is the unique land of the Bretons who share Celtic roots with people in the far-flung corners of the British Isles. The earth breathes history – Neolithic standing stones dot the landscape, and the salt tang of the ocean and delectable seafood, like mussels or lobster served in picturesque ports like Cancale, is never far away.
Stroll along St-Malo’s ramparts and see the stunning cathedral. Visit the picturesque monastic island of Mont-Saint-Michel, take a tour of the famous Abbey and then walk around the narrow streets on the base of the rock, with its jumble of medieval houses. At low tide you can walk out to the island, but watch the water, or you’ll have to wait at least 6 hours before returning.
A well preserved and very picturesque town. Stop at the Musée de la Marine, housed in the church of St. Étienne which features model ships and antique furnishings. You’ll also find many galleries with art dating back to pre-Impressionism. .
True specialties of the Normandy region. The village of Camembert is authentic, the cheese gourmet and creamy. Local pear cider and Calvados apple brandy are the perfect accompaniments.
