brittany ferries plymouth roscoff armoriqueThe 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.
