The majority of
ferry crossings are served by Brittany Ferries' vessel, the Armorique, which came
into service early 2009. This impressive ship is spacious and features cheery decor
and a friendly crew, always smiling and helpful. Some crossings during Novemebr
and December use the MV Bretagne, another highly specified ship.
All ships have a range of accommodation on board, from comfortable reclining seats
through budget ensuite cabins to the luxury of a Commodore Cabin with TV, large
bed and a sitting area. Overnight crossings mean you arrive refreshed and ready
for your journey into France, whilst you can request a daytime cabin for a really
restful and relaxing journey across the Western Channel.

high standard for which Brittany Ferries is known is reflected in the quality of
the food onboard. The Pont-Aven has no fewer than 3 restaurants and 3 bars, while
the Armorique has a large self-service restaurant and a cafe-bar, plus further bars,
and like the Pont-Aven, two cinemas.
Plymouth is easily reached along the A38 Devon Expressway which is effectively
a continuation of the M5 motorway. The journey takes around 4 and a half
hours from central London or about 3 and a half from Birmingham. And if
you need to stay overnight in Plymouth the city rewards with its spectacular
position at the head of Plymouth Sound, its high quality hotels and shops
and plenty of good restaurants.
Roscoff is a delightful small Breton port. This is where Brittany Ferries
started their operations back in the early 70's, when a group of Breton
farmers got together to form a co-operative to export their agricultural
produce - cauliflowers in particular - to the UK. A good road soon takes
you to the N12 at Morlaix, a dual carriageway taking you to Rennes in about
2 hours, from where the whole of France is within reach.
But for many, Brittany itself is the goal. In the north and west you find wild
and beautiful coastal scenery where secluded sandy coves hide between dramatic cliffs,
while in the south the scenery is softer with estuaries and sandy beaches perfect
for a family holiday. Inland the landscape is often rugged and windswept, but deep
wooded valleys offer seclusion and some great walking. Finally, the towns and villages
of Brittany, from the maritime city of Brest, to tiny hamlets close to ancient stone
circles, all have their special charm.
