We travel through Normandy to Mont Saint-Michel, a magnificent architectural masterpiece built on an ancient mount that is often surrounded by the sea at high tide. Wander around the winding cobbled streets leading up to the abbey and walk around the ramparts, browse in the shops or relax in a bar or café. We continue to Cancale: its old town is on the hill and the port area lies below. From the pretty harbour at low tide you can see the ‘parcs’ where oysters are grown. We later reach Dinan where we stay for two nights. The fortified town of Dinan is one of the oldest medieval towns in Brittany and is characterised by cobbled streets, beautiful half-timbered houses and stunning Romanesque and Gothic architecture.
We leave Dinan and head to the beautiful city of Vannes. This well-preserved walled city is a joy to explore with its narrow winding streets, lined with typical pavement cafés selling local delicacies. From Vannes we head to Carnac, famous for its menhirs in the surrounding countryside which form one of the most important prehistoric sites in Europe. We continue to our hotel in Quimper for two nights.
Spend a leisurely morning in Quimper, with its beautiful medieval quarter, superb Gothic cathedral, and narrow streets lined with half-timbered houses. This afternoon, we offer an optional excursion to Concarneau with its ‘ville close’ (walled town) and sandy beaches.
We believe that our holidays may not be suitable for children under 8 years old (except for Disneyland Paris bookings) however, we will
consider individual requests on application. Customers aged 18 and under at the time of travel must be accompanied by an adult, parent or
guardian aged over 18 years old.
You will stay for two nights at the 3-star Ibis Dinan, situated in the centre of town, close to the ramparts. It has a small bar but does not have a restaurant, however, there are a number of excellent restaurants within walking distance. You will also stay for two nights at the 3-star Ibis Quimper on the outskirts of town. The hotel has a restaurant and bar.
Overnight stays in northern France will be in city-style hotels.
We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
