The climate in Brittany

The climate in the peninsula of Brittany is well known in France for being characterised by very high humidity and rapidly changing weather. This fast change in weather results in beautiful light effects and a play of colours. But it’s also why the weather in Brittany is difficult to generalize. The north coast of Brittany is a bit rainier and cooler than the south coast. The climate is characterised by the Gulf Stream, so mainly mild temperatures prevail.

The Breton cuisine

The Atlantic undoubtedly influences Breton cuisine above all else. Fish, seafood and seaweed are an integral part of Breton cuisine. However, the most famous dish in Brittany has a sweet character. Crepes – the deliciously thin pancakes with sweet fillings are eaten in some form or another all over the world. Definitely try the famous Oysters from Cancale, the famous scallops and excellent cider from Brittany. Another speciality that forms the base of many dishes is the sea salt flavoured butter.
