Somewhere Far from the Tour Eiffel ????

 If you are on a long trip to France or you live in Paris  and want to go on a gateway far from the condescend and crowded touristic places like the heart of Paris, Champs Elysee's , Tour Eiffel, Mont Mart and many other places .... You should head to Brittany " Bretagne " in french , in the North West of France

The historical province of Brittany is divided into five departments: Finistère in the west, Cotes-D'Armor in the north, Ille-et-Villaine in the north east, the loire-Atlantique in the south east and Morbihan in the south Bay of Biscay .
Where we went couple of weeks ago to see a bit of Sun and the sea in a small village called Arzon .After 5 hours drive we finally reached to a charming place, Stunning natural landscapes, far from the madding crowd it was us and the  nature...
Feeling the wind, observing the birds and walking on the our case was relaxing .

but here is a list of the things that you can do over there 
There is a wide  range of activities and things to do while visiting, also it depends on the mood and the reason of the visit and the season .

Nautical activity
1- The Week of the Gulf " La semaine du golf: a maritime festival takes place and it is the destination for an exceptional gathering , from the spectacular yacht all the way to the traditional boat from 30 Mai to 5 June 2011.more info


2-Follow the route " Des Ducs des Bretagne "
 On the way of this route there is an outstanding reminder of Rhuys Peninsula's medieval history :Scuscino Castle which was built in the 13th century between the sea and the forest at the heart of the vast hunting preserve.Every summer a Historical show takes place "Les spectacles Historiques " where you can see flamboyant costumes and impressive sound and light show .

3-A walk in its narrow streets is the best way to appreciate this charming port, watching the fishing and pleasure boats dancing on the sea water, observing, listening, enjoying nature.
