Unusual – Bréhat island, Brittany.

Off the coast of Paimpol is Ile Bréhat, one of Brittany’s loveliest islands. In actual fact, Bréhat consists of several islets around two small, car-free islands, which are joined by a bridge at low tide. It is easily accessible by a regular 10-minute boat journey from Pointe de l’Arcouest.

Thanks to the Gulf Stream, the micro-climate allows many Mediterranean plants to flourish here such as palm trees, eucalyptus, agapanthus, hydrangeas and geraniums, which enhance the beautifully tended gardens of the pretty stone cottages and villas; many are holiday homes owned by Parisians. Bréhat also attracts its fair share of birds including gulls and cormorants as well as 270 pairs of puffins, which nest among the pink rocks.
