Things to do in Brittany, France while taking a CELTA

Brittany is a region full of picturesque villages and scenery, and there is so much adventure sealed up in this charming French city for our trainees to unlock. Dinan Medieval town, for example, is a must-see with its paved roads and intriguing history. Similarly, the walled town of Saint-Malo is a favorite with CELTA trainees wanting to step back in time and experience a little of the region`s past.

Located right on the coast, Le Pointe du Grouin, which means 'Pig’s Snout', allows fantastic views of the sea and nearby islands. Hiking can also be done here, and wildlife lovers might spot some unusual bird species too. Watching the sunset from here after spending the day exploring or after an intensive TEFL class is a great experience.

Brittany is famous as the home to beautiful picturesque villages and scenic towns. Saint Suliac is a seaside town with the Norman Church and lots of traditional Breton architecture. An alternative spot for a tranquil day out is the not-so-secret island Presqu’lle de Quiberon, which is most popular among the locals. The area dotted with wildlife reserves has a large part of it extending into the sea providing an avenue for you to take a stroll by the coast. There is the Quiberon town, featuring lovely painted houses in shades of blue. Walk the streets and gulp in some fresh air as you enjoy the serene environment.

Brittany`s local food specialties do not disappoint. Try the traditional seafood dishes of the region and dig into crepes, Kouign Amann, macarons or galettes at one of the many restaurants found in almost every town. If you can imagine yourself exploring small French villages, perhaps cycling along cobbled lanes and enjoying some days by the sea, then our Brittany course is an excellent fit for you.
