Central Brittany Journal

Look inside…



Finistère is an amazing mixture of rugged coastline, with some spectacular sandy beaches, of medieval towns, prehistoric sites, craggy moorland and undulating farmland. Wendy Mewes has successfully selected a number of tours which, by following clearly described routes, introduce the visitor who may not have a lot of time to plan their own trips around this lovely area of Brittany. Even the casual reader will gain an insight into the region from the wide-ranging selection of tours excellently illustrated with colour photographs. Each itinerary is further accompanied by a few comments from the author on her own favourite places - a useful indication of how well she knows her own ground.
