Many many thanks for all your information. I have a very general plan of the direction we will head each day, based in large part on reading your blog. I have read other guidebooks as well, but they seem a little short on details about Brittany. (Have not read the Michelin one yet.) Mainly I want to find towns and scenic areas where we can park the car and take a walk and enjoy some good food and scenery. I'm really looking forward to it.
Unfortunately, we will only be in Paris for one afternoon this trip. That is when we first arrive. We are spending our second week in the Dordogne region with a day in between in the Loire Valley. I will bookmark your site in case anyone I know is looking for a bike tour, or we have that opportunity on a future trip.
Thanks again for all your help. I would love to see your pictures from your current trip, so I will look for them.
May I just say how fantastic your report was (as well as other information you have posted) and how much it has helped me to plan our trip - husband was getting worried! This is a Brittany taster trip for us having never been there before. We are beginning with a family birthday celebration at Malestroit - for diplomatic reasons I will not mention your comparison between Rochefort en Terre and Malestroit to them!
It looks like we will be going from Malestroit to Carnac for several nights and then Carnac to Treguier (or general area) for several more nights and then drive from Treguier back to the ferry at Caen on the Saturday we leave. Do you have any suggestions for wonderful things/interesting routes on the way to Treguier?
Once again thank you for your fabulous report written with wit and fantastic detail. My Megalithic knowledge is now immense

Hello, from Vancouver, Canada. Here it is 2021 and I am still fascinated by your post from 9 years ago. We cancelled our plans for a 2nd trip to Brittany in 2020 and it looks like we will have to wait until 2022 before we can make that trip. So, I read and I dream about the wonders of Finistere and all points west. We loved reading about your hunt for big rocks in Brittany and that inspired us to visit many menhir sights from the Cote de Granite Rose to Le Bono to the Islands in The Gulf of Morbihan and of course Carnac. Although I also love rocks we are looking for our next inspiration. I just wanted to thank you for your past posts. Re-reading them keeps me excited about travel through this crazy pandemic time. I hope you are well and still exploring. Cheers, Maggie B.
Maggie - I hope you get to revisit soon and I can quite see why you would want to.
I had not seen this report before , but this part of Brittany holds very special memories for me -several years of multi- generational family holidays when my children were small. FMT - I am not sure if you are still here at all or maybe from time to time , but what a great report and fantastic that whatever medium you used for your photos has survived these last 10 years or so.
