Search the best hotels in Brittany
For carbon-conscious Brits, wary of spending too much on travel in the current economic climate, holidaying close to home has rarely seemed more appealing. Easy to get to from the UK, Brittany has ferry ports at Roscoff in the west, St-Malo in the east, and Normandy's ports close by as well. The Hotel Guru's picks of the best places to stay in Brittany offer something for everyone from chic B&Bs to seaside hotels to historic manoirs.
Things not to miss:
- With its long coastline of sweeping beaches, rocky headlands, estuaries and inlets, Brittany has much in common with Cornwall, and the Breton people, like the Cornish, can trace their ancestry back to the Celts.
- In the North, glorious sandy beaches dot the Côte d'Emeraude and the Côte de Granit Rose, interrupted by bustling seaside resorts (Dinard is a chic option and just a short drive from St Malo), fishing villages and oysterbeds.
- Inland, the region also has much to offer, from the hilly, forested Parc Naturel Régional d'Armorique to the more serene wooded valleys of the south.
- Families in search of bucket-and-spade country have also long favoured the fine, slowly-shelving beaches along the Golfe de Morbihan and the Côte d'Amour on the gentler southern shore, and the majority of our picks of the best places to stay in Brittany can be found here.
- La Baule has long been a favourite, due to its vast sandy beach that stretches for an incredible 12 kilometres!
- Once capital of the region, Nantes is now a thriving cultural hub and a good option for those who like a buzzing atmosphere to accompany their coastal holiday.
- Vannes is another town to consider, with its beautiful medieval centre and port, and from here you can catch the ferry to Belle Ile en Mer, a charming island in the Golfe de Morbihan that the French have been trying to keep to themselves!
Windswept but picturesque fishing communities nestle in the wild, dramatic landscape of Finistère in the west, where you can sample some of the best of Brittany's famous seafood and some of the best places to stay in Brittany.

- For an unusual option book the Hostellerie de la Pointe St Mathieu. A converted lighthouse, this offers contemporary rooms, spectacular seaviews and fabulous restaurant.

Good access to the ferry
- For a location with great access to the ferry at St Malo one of the best places to stay in Brittany would have to be the Manoir de Rigourdaine. Overlooking the Rance estuary you're just a short hop to the ferry terminal, but feel like a million miles away.
- Another good option is Malouiniere Le Valmarin. This charming property feels like a country manor, yet is centrally located within St Malo, just 50m from the beach and with easy access to the ferry port.
For a chateau stay
- Chateau de Kerlarec is a 19th century building which has been lovingly restored and now offers charming B&B accommodation.

- Hotel le Cardinal is a great family seaside property on Belle Ile. There's a large swimming pool, two restaurants and beach very nearby.
- Le Lodge Kerisper is a chic seaside hotel between Vannes and Lorient. Family rooms sleep up to five and for larger groups there's a villa which can accomomdate ten.
For a countryside escape
- Awash with charm and character, Manoir de a Hazaie is a glorious manor house. Featuring delightful, individually decorated rooms and lovely gardens to explore, it's an amazing place to relax.
- Manoir de Kerledan is a beautifully renovated manor house offering charming accomodation near Carhaix Plouguer. Featuring delightful rooms and an excellent, intimate restaurant, it's a great B&B option.
