Brittany, France


Occupying the north-west corner of France, Brittany is a popular region with British holidaymakers and expats mainly due to its close proximity to the UK. It is easy to travel to Brittany from the UK by ferry making it a good option for a holiday or second home.

With such a long coastline, Brittany has an abundant supply of seafood, including oysters from Cancale, and scallops. Brittany’s most famous dish has to be its pancakes. The savoury pancakes are called galettes, made with wholemeal flour and often filled with ham, cheese and eggs, while the sweet pancakes are called crêpes, made from white flour and filled with cream, chocolate and fresh fruit.

Average property prices in this region vary from €2,552/m2 for houses and €3,145/m2 for apartments.
