Walking Brittany

£5.99

Product description

28 Brittany walks with maps, photos and directions, covering the departments of Finistère, Côtes d’Armor, Morbihan, Ille-et-Vilaine and Loire-Atlantique. The introduction gives an historical outline, an overall view of the variety and cultural background of Brittany’s footpaths and a useful glossary of relevant Breton and French vocabulary.

The walks include spectacular sections of the famous coastal path, legendary hills and forests, varied water courses and traditional countryside. The text fully describes directions and provides atmospheric accounts of places of interest on the route, such as megalithic monuments, châteaux and sacred structures with their associated legends.

Each walk begins with practical information – location, length, duration, etc. – and a detailed introduction to set the scene in terms of landscape and history. The directions are clearly explained and reinforced by a sketch map of the route. Further suggestions for walks in the same area and other places of interest in the vicinity are given at the end of each walk.
