  • Petit train in presqu'ile de Rhuys

    ok ok this is a catch many times, but what I am saying is, if you are first timer or second and had little time to move around and see things, the petit train or little train is a good idea. And it can be a good rest after much walking which is the preferred way in town.anyway here it is in the presqu'ile de Rhuys around the coastal and beach...

  • What's the obsession with roundabouts?

    (work in progress)Oh my word, what is it with Bretons and roundabouts?As I usually travel by train in France, I can't comment on whether this obsession is regional or national. But there does seem to be a fixation with centrifugal tendencies that is somewhat unnerving for the foreign tourist!Five in a row in St Malo (and I'm a poet and I don't know...

  • The Great Diesel Hunt!

    (work in progress)Driving a car in France is easy - finding out where to refuel it can be a bit trickier if you don't know where to look!We hired a diesel vehicle from Europcar, and things were fine until the fuel gauge started to plummet alarmingly in a deeply rural area on a Sunday afternoon. We are used to driving in countries where there are...

    While in Brittany, the company I worked for hired various vehicles, minibuses and cars, from Opelrent. I drove one of the cars for a while, an Opel Meriva (which would be a Vauxhall Meriva in the UK), and found it to be a good little run around (apart from a few issues with the bars at the sides of the windscreen, which make visibility on bends a...

  • Rent or Bring a Car

    A trip through Brittany to see its many and variedsites and vistas can only be done by driving a car. The traffic in the largest cities is easily managed and the backroads are well paved. French drivers are careful and polite. Of recent years more superhighways have reduced much interpoint time and the advent of GPS is a godsend, but careful study...

  • Arrive Relaxed

    There are many ways to arrive in France from the UK. It seems that most travellers prefer to take their own cars and have the convenience of getting from A to B ( which can be a long way ) in their own vehicles which makes a lot a lot of sense.If on arriving you have a long drive in front of you then you need to arrive refreshed. Choosing the right...

    Buses are better for journeys through the region. The only railway connecting the North to the South goes from Brest to Quimper.On the contrary, buses can take you to every village, even the smallest one.

  • Car rental

    It´s important to have or rent a car in Brittany. We did rent one there, not even at home. It was low prized, best without kilometer limit. But you have to pay at start and to give a bond (same like prize).Do pictures of the car (with date) at start ! So you will not have a bad surprise at the end.

  • Bus

    Moving around most towns in Bretagne is by bus..Its cheap, and always available. Unlike Paris, metro is not very popular here, and it is just very convinient to go round with the bus.

  • Private Car

    I find it more convinient to travel to this region using a private car. The first time I was in Brest, it was by air, and I didnt see much of Bretagne. Driving from Paris, is more fun, as you get to see a lot of places on the way. You also have the choice of stoping over wherever you so wish.

  • Excellent road network

    Brittany has an excellent road network built around a few dual carriageway roads, where the speed limit is 110 km/h. This is what the French call "voie express". It is faster than a main road but is not quite a motorway. The good news is that Brittany is the only region in France where there is not a single toll paying motorway, while having roads...
