For every town and village, there are comprehensive and opinionated reviews of all the best hotels, restaurants and cafés, whatever your budget. There is plenty of practical advice on a host of activities including boat trips along Brittany’s Nantes-Brest canal and cycling the backroads. The guide also includes a unique chapter on Breton music and language and comes complete with maps and plans for every area.
