  • All buffet breakfasts and 4 evening meals are included. Brittany’s fish and seafood is without doubt one of the region’s biggest draws. Platters stacked high with lobster, crab, oyster, shrimp and prawns grace the tables of the atmospheric restaurants. Huge bowls of fresh mussels, scallops and stuffed clams take their place alongside delicious sea bass and bream. The flat local ‘Belons’ oysters are delicious, fleshier than normal ones; they are renowned for their fine hazelnut flavour. Seafood will generally be served with the excellent Breton butter, which contains Guérande salt crystals, and plain bread. Many people also think of crêpes when they think of Brittany and indeed almost every little village or town has its own crêperie.

    Arrive at Lamballe

    Your holiday starts at M. Jamin's 16th Century manor house in the countryside, just 3kms outside the market town of Lamballe. With only 16 rooms, it's a lovely, intimate place to stay.

    Lamballe to Sables d'Or-Les-Pins

    It's gentle cycling today as you head first along quiet country lanes then out to the coast and the lively sailing resort of Pleneuf-Val-Andre. The deserted white sandy beaches here are simply gorgeous so make sure you take your swimming things with you! There are also some excellent ocean-facing restaurants where you can enjoy a long seafood lunch. Lovely beachside trails lead to the sleepy seaside village of Sables-d'Or-les-Pins where your hotel is just 200m from the sea. *Standard Hotel*

    At Sables d'Or-Les-Pins

    Relax on the beach or follow our 25km circular cycling route taking in the Cap Frehel lighthouse and the famous 14th Century feudal stronghold of Fort de la Latte. Perched on a rocky promontory above the sea, it occupies one of the finest settings in northern France, and it's easy to see why it's been used on numerous film sets. A climb up to the gallery at the top of the tower will reward you with magnificent views extending as far as Jersey on a clear day. Optional ride: 25km / 16 miles *Standard Hotel*

    Sables d'Or-Les-Pins to Dinard

    Today's route starts with scenic pedalling through pretty farming hamlets - wonderful views across the Baie de la Fresnaye. Perhaps stop for a coffee in the bustling market town of Matignon before you head on to the popular yachting village of Lancieux, with its impressive square bell tower capped by a dome and lantern turret. Continue to gorgeous St-Briac where Debussy composed his major work 'La Mer'. The final stretch takes you to your hotel in the seaside town of Dinard. *Standard Hotel*

    At Dinard

    Once a sleepy fishing village on the estuary of the Rance, the English transformed Dinard into one of the most famous and upmarket seaside resorts in Europe. Although a little quieter now, it has not lost any of its charm and many of the Belle Epoque villas have become historic monuments. Walk out to the Pointe des Etretes for views of the off-shore islands, or take a 10 minute ferry across the bay to St-Malo to lose yourself in the narrow cobbled streets within Intra Muros (the fortified walls) of the ancient mediaeval city. *Standard Hotel*

    Dinard to Dinan

    A complete change of scene today as you cycle inland and follow the banks of the River Rance. You'll feel like you're taking a trip back in time as you pass sleepy hamlets, forgotten fishing ports and postcard-pretty St-Suliac, officially rated as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Enjoy lunch at the lovely sailing port in St-Hubert then cycle along the wonderfully flat towpath to Dinan. Your hotel here overlooks the river and picturesque port, and has a lovely outdoor swimming pool if you fancy a dip. Two route options: East bank route 34km / 21miles or West bank route 33km / 20miles *Standard Hotel*

    At Dinan

    This beautifully preserved ancient walled town, with riverfront port and picturesque half-timbered buildings, is an absolute gem. Wander round the marvellously restored ancient squares and ramparts, visit the imposing 13th century castle (with dungeon), admire the flamboyant Gothic basilica and stroll the lovely cobbled streets packed with authentic artisan workshops. Maybe take lunch in the bustling Place des Merciers, where pretty triangular-gabled houses are further examples of Dinan's exceptional architectural heritage, then, in the afternoon, perhaps follow our 25km circular cycle route inland to the pretty village of Evran. Optional ride: 25km / 16 miles *Standard Hotel*

    Dinan to Lamballe

    Your first stop today is the picturesque little village of Lehon, then it's on through quiet farming villages to the impressive 13th century Château de la Hunaudaye. The ruins of this huge Château date back over 800 years, yet the five majestic towers are still in good condition and are surrounded by a water-filled moat. You finish the day with gentle, flat cycling through the forest back to Lamballe where you can relax in the gardens and enjoy a celebratory drink before dinner - a Kir Breton (cassis and cider) maybe? *Standard Hotel*
