The Granite Coast of Brittany

The Granite Coast of Brittany Overview

Discover a wild coastline of rugged pink rocks and secluded sandy bays as you walk from one pretty village to the next.

  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • gentle walks around rocky headlands and sandy bays
  • delicious fish and seafood dishes
  • discover the Celtic culture

With its own language and the highly Celtic flavours of its culture, Brittany can feel like a separate country, which is not surprising given its relative geographical isolation and several centuries of independent rule in the Middle Ages.
The coast is characterised by its variety of landscapes, from calm, wooded estuaries to craggy bays with their pink granite rocks weathered into weird and wonderful shapes. This splendid walking route is a discovery of Brittany’s northern coast, the Côte du Granit Rose, passing through bustling fishing ports and stone hamlets. Our route mainly follows the well-waymarked GR long-distance path, and though you cover up to 17 kilometres a day (about four hours' walking), the going is easy, along coastal paths, tracks and quiet country lanes. All the hotels with restaurants serve delicious fish and seafood specialities – the Hotel Aigue Marine has even been awarded a Michelin star.
