Cotes d'Amor is a beautiful area of Brittany dotted with historic towns and villages in a landscape rich in flora and fauna. A holiday cottage here is a great base for a peaceful holiday.
Nature lovers will be spoilt for choice with the Loudeac National Forest, Les Landes de Ploumanac'h and Ile de Brehat all offering miles of trails for spotting rare plants and birds. There's plenty of opportunities to get out on the water too - try Jugon-les-Lacs or Lannion for pedalos, canoes or a guided river boat trip and go to the seaside resort of St Cast Le Guildo for water sports and fishing.
Visit daily markets in the medieval towns of the region to stock up on fresh bread, cheeses and the shellfish the area is famed for. The town of Dinan is great for souvenirs with local craft shops selling artisan leather, silk, pottery, woodwork and glass.
