Binge on Brittany: the nature cocktail

Let’s Binge on Brittany because not everyone is lucky enough to be in France right now. Many are at home yearning to be in France…

We’ve designed our BingeonFrance series, including BingeonParis and this one BingeonBrittany, to help you immerse yourself in France and what’s happening right now!

Each of our #BingeonFrance articles includes chatty guided videos and photos galore along with articles and wonderful information. Full of wonderful holiday ideas and so much information that these articles cause you to feel that you’re the one holding the camera! yes, really!

There are many superb regions in France and they are so diverse!

We’ve chosen to focus on Brittany first. Why?

Well, it is so magical, so overflowing with natural beauty: Coastal gems, astounding healing forests, and rich stories about warm Breton people. We decided to set about exploring, discovering, and experiencing as much about Brittany as we could and to share it with you. Our overall theme is health and wellness. Many members have spoken of the need to decompress in particular at this time and we feel that being surrounded by nature helps us all do just that: de-stress! To us, Brittany is our ‘Nature Cocktail’.

2. Introducing Dinan

Let’s now go to a little village in northern Brittany named Dinan. Introducing Dinan… arguably Brittany’s prettiest town, Brittany Tourism describes it as: “Dinan is, without doubt, one of the most attractive and best preserved small towns in Brittany. With its 1.8 mile (3km)-long ramparts, half-timbered houses, attractive port, and cobbled streets filled with art galleries and craft shops, it’s worth a day of anyone’s time

    These are the exact villages I visited last week while touring Brittany. St Malo was my favorite. We based ourself out of Rennes and drove to all of these Villiage like Dinan. We were there on Bastille Day
