Roscoff holiday cottages – a classic Brittany beach holiday
Roscoff on the Breton coastline is a fantastic destination for your holiday in North West France.Travelling to Roscoff is easy as well as you can catch the ferry to your Roscoff holiday rental directly from Cork or Plymouth. As it's a port town you could be forgiven for assuming that Roscoff has less natural beauty than other destinations on the French coastline but it has some beautiful beaches. It is also the town that gave Brits the stereotype of Frenchmen with strings of onions around their necks and you can visit the Maison des Johnnies in the town centre to find out all about them. Brittany is arguably more famous though for its sweet foods and everyone who visits Roscoff will want to try plenty of sweet and savoury crepes, galettes and the famous Breton kouign amann butter cake. Staying in a holiday rental in Roscoff, you will find culinary delights right on your doorstep.

Head down to nearby Plouescat and visit La Miellerie, a charming shop selling all kinds of honey and honey related goods. High quality seafood is also available in abundance in this area and just outside Roscoff is the Brasserie-Cidrerie Kerav'ale, which has been producing craft beers and cidres since 2005. You can buy bottles of it there, or even a keg of 20 or 25 litres to enjoy back home or at your Roscoff holiday cottage. Roscoff and the surrounding area have plenty of walking trails for those that like to keep active or want to counter the impact of all those crepes! In addition, there are plenty of cycle routes and places to rent bikes. Take your bike all the way down to Morlaix or Saint Pol de Léon to see more of this lovely area, or take the ferry to Ile de Batz, a small island just 15 minutes away by ferry which is home to a great botanical garden and some fabulous beaches. If you rent a holiday home in Roscoff, you needn't even rent a car to do some exploring!
