Sailing with Brittany Ferries into Roscoff is the ideal opportunity for a delightful short break in France. A relaxing ferry ride is rewarding with an even more relaxing time in France! This picturesque port is a delight to discover and there is plenty on the doorstep to keep you entertained. Roscoff is home to the Onion Johnnies – the men in stripy tops and berets that cycled along with strings of onions around their necks. Feted for their distinctive flavour, these AOC onions are the star of the show; enjoy them in all their guises from onion tart to the ultimate onion soup or simply stock up with a string or two. Take a stroll in Roscoff Botanic Garden to wake up your senses and get away from it all. Perched on a pile of granite rocks some 18m high, the garden offers a panoramic view of Morlaix bay and a collection of no less than 3000 exotic plant species! Alternatively, visit the fascinating Château du Taureau, a fortified rocky island in the Bay of Morlaix designed by Vauban having served as a prison and a sailing school. There are also some lovely beaches, leisurely walks, and a good choice of restaurants and cafés to taste local culinary specialities and French cuisine.

Le Brittany Hotel & Spa****

A magnificent Relais & Châteaux hotel with a successful mix of ancient and modern in Roscoff, Brittany. Treat yourself to the luxury of an 18th century manor house located in an exceptional setting. The luxury hotel has preserved the Breton soul of the building’s past. “The Celtic touch is everywhere”, explains the owner, and it can be seen carefully blended with more classical lines or contemporary touches. The rooms are all different – ‘tradition’ with a New England style; ‘petite tradition’, with light-coloured woods; ‘suite avec terrasse’ with a contemporary feel. The superb health & fitness centre, with its designer recliners, heated pool and 2 treatment rooms, is a haven for those who want to wind down. And, of course, aficionados of good food are in their element: Loïc Le Bail, in his Michelin starred restaurant “Le Yachtman”, serves a truly refined Breton cuisine with the accent on seafood specialities.
