Dramatic rocky coastline and beaches of fine-grained sand, old fishing villages, a lonely hinterland with pastures and hedges, remnants of a mysterious megalithic culture and lively Celtic traditions all contribute to the appeal of Brittany, for many the most beautiful peninsula and most attractive holiday destination in France. Brittany, reaching out into the Atlantic at the northwestern corner of the country, has two sides to its character. Ar Mor, land on the sea, is the name given to this stretch of coast by the Gauls. Rocky cliffs dominate the coastline, broken by sandy bays, picturesque fishing villages and seaside resorts, popular for their mild climate and healthy air. Argoat, land of the woods, describes the hinterland, once lonely heaths, moors and woodland, now merely the land of meadows and hedges. The peninsula is crossed by the Massif Amoricain, with the peaks of the Monts d,Arree reaching 384m/1259ft (Roc Trevezel), 330m/1082ft (Menez-Hom) on the Crozon peninsula and in the Montagnes Noires 326m/1069ft (Roc de Toullaeron). The capital is Rennes, as the historic capital of Nantes was annexed to the Pays de la Loire region in 1981. Brittany is the second most popular holiday region in France after the Cote d'Azur. Most aim for the coast, but hikers, houseboat holidaymakers and thalassotherapy enthusiasts will also find much to suit their tastes.
