Bastille Day in Brittany

Recommended Posts

I will be in Brittany for Bastille day. I've always wanted to be in France for this celebration but this is our first time. We' had thought of travelling down to Josselin but wanted to stay in the north and north west to explore those coastal areas.

 

Can anybody recommend where 'the 'best' town' (in their opinion) is to visit and join in with the party?

 

Thankyou all in advance

One thing to think about is that some villages actually celebrate the day before! We found this out a couple of years ago when we had a lovely firework display in the rain in one place, then when we moved on somewhere else the following day, there was one there too! :-D

Spent many Bastille days in France. Sailed into Cherboug once on yacht, forgetting the date, and arriving at the Harbour entrance as they fired the cannon,at midday. literally across our bow. Any way back to question, the best one we saw was in ConCarneau, on the seaward side of the old cite, Fantastic !1 with the boats lit up in the background..

PS Mont St Michel may be a good place as well.

Vannestastic! Thank you all.

 

Good Aire/Site at Conleau, and bus into town, as parking can be difficult Watch for Mossies in July
