School Trips to Brittany
Emerald seas and pink-granite shorelines. Feudal castles and fortified cities. Savoury galettes and sweet crepes; salted caramels and fruits de mer. A Catholic region of more than 300 saints and one of Europe’s six Celtic regions, Brittany is the most culturally independent of all the French regions.
Explore the ancient streets of St Malo and learn about the adventurers and pirates who lived here. See the city’s crenelated walls and visit the 360 degree aquarium. Sketch the turrets and conical roofs of intact chateaux and examine megalithic structures across the region. Study castle ruins in Le Guido and half-timbered houses in Rennes. Count the towers at Fougères and the celebrities in Dinard. Look south to idyllic islands, or nip into Normandy to experience Mont St Michel.
A unique French region, just a few hours from England, UK school groups are fortunate to be within easy reach of Brittany. A choice of beach-side accommodation offers an excellent range of entertainment facilities, allowing school groups to enjoy the comforts of their hotel as much as the charms of the region. This is an excellent destination for exploring a variety of curriculum themes, whilst gaining culture immersion and French language practice.
