Brittany (4th ed.)
(Cadogan Guides USA)
Philippe Barbour

published 2009 • 5 ½”x 8 ¼” • 520 pages • full-color photos • maps
ISBN 9781566567657 • paperback • $21.95

“If you look at life as a journey rather than a destination, then Cadogan Guides are the manuals for you.–Everything France magazine

Cadogan’s half-Breton author takes the reader on a lovingly described tour of Brittany, through great cities and granite villages to dramatic headlands and isolated beaches. Full details of local markets and festivals encourage you to stray from the beaten track, while a section dedicated to the spellbinding Mont St-Michel gives a unique insight into this arresting ancient monument.

Hand-picked, inviting places to stay and eat, easy-to-use maps, clear layout and rich cultural background detail combine with expert advice on everything from Neolithic ruins and old fortifications to Breton bagpipe music and delicious crêpes.

Old Breton legends are interspersed with enticing descriptions of contemporary local life in a guide that is as revealing as it is reliable.

Philippe Barbour is half-Breton and half-British, and has written extensively about France in both books and magazines. He is the author of Cadogan’s Rhône-Alpes guide and co-author of the France guide.
