You are looking for a total change of scenery, close to the campsite Le Neptune.  Take the direction of Paimpol, embark at the Pointe d’ l’Arcouest, direction the island of Bréhat.

Our opinion: a little trip not to be missed during your stay in the Côtes d’Armor.

You will experience a real immersion in a colourful land. Ideal for walkers to discover paradise.

Bréhat is renowned for its floral diversity, as well as its landscaped paths.

When spring arrives (the ideal time, to avoid the crowds), you will be welcomed to Brehat by a magnificent colourful palette and its floral scents.

The island of Bréhat has 470 inhabitants in winter and 5000 in summer…

Discover this beautiful little island of 3.5 km by 1.5 km.

This subtle mix between the granite and this floral diversity, make it a colourful canvas.

For the little story…

The island of Brehat is also, and above all, a maritime history. But also, a military history, which has deposited its imprint from the Middle Ages, or many privateers reigned terror in the Channel.

To know….

You will discover on the one hand, a variety of plants and flowers such as palm trees, mimosas without forgetting the one that symbolizes the island: the Agapanthus. There are also many exotic species such as the agave and the echium.
