WHAT BRINGS US HERE
Brittany is the region that lies in the extreme west of France and has more than 1,000 km of coastline! No wonder its food and gastronomy is based mostly on fresh and quality seafood. The seafood of Brittany is among the best known, most delicious and awarded in the world!
But if that was not enough, Brittany is also famous for its renowned butter, and its Celtic sweets. Among their best-known specialties are the delicious Crêpes, their salted butter Caramel, Kouign Amann and Far Breton – which depict the strong importance of folklore and traditions in this lively French region.
Mont Saint Michel, a small medieval town right on the border of Normandy with Brittany is one of those fascinating places that has become the desire of many aficionados for beautiful travels. Whether it is for the beautiful Abbey that occupies the top of the mount or for the incredible phenomenon of the tide, Saint Michael’s Mount is a unique and must-see attraction.

did you know ?
Why is Brittany's butter salty? In the past, salt was a very expensive thing used almost exclusively to preserve food. In 1343, King Philip VI established the “Gabelle”, a salt tax that would last for more than 400 years. However, at this time Brittany was not yet annexed to France, it was independent, therefore not impacted by this tax. Due to this tax exemption, the consumption of salted butter, which until then had equaled unsalted butter, flourished on the British tables. And since then it is one of the symbols of their cuisine.
