Sometimes it’s difficult to take a break. Especially if you love your job and you feel you need to be there supporting your team or your company, holidays may seem – sometimes – a bit of an imposition. Or perhaps you’re considering going away but taking your laptop and phone with you so you stay connected, just in case something happens.
Our immediate advice here is… don’t! Holidays should be taken seriously – in fact, as seriously as your work hours – especially because a few days of complete disconnection are indeed good for your health.
Brittany is a place of variety – from family fun to scrumptious food, there is something for everyone in the beauty of this sprawling landscape. Leave the children behind and explore the countryside in search of the perfect glass of wine.
The breathtaking scenery of both coastline and terrain make Brittany a mystical place; the surrounding sea, the forests, and the hills ensure that you have a wonderful experience while golfing. Brittany’s uncrowded and inexpensive golf courses are the perfect, enticing experience for your holidays.
After a lot of deliberation, you decided on taking your family for a holiday to Brittany. You’ve booked your accommodation, packed everything bar the kitchen’s sink and piled the kids and the dog in the car for the Channel crossing. And now you are there, watching the deep-blue Atlantic and the steep cliffs, and when you are about to let out a sigh of satisfaction your twelve-year-old daughter says: ‘but this looks just like England!’
Well, yes. The landscapes – and the weather – may be, in some aspects, similar, but Brittany is very different and it has many secrets to surprise your family with. Just wait and see!
A superb holiday destination, Brittany is perfect for anyone who loves a fun-filled vacation surrounded by beautiful scenery at all times – and for people who enjoy a temperate climate and warm waters to swim in! Rich in history and with a varied collection of fauna and flora you can spot and discover, you won’t lack for things to do when you visit this famous region. Brittany is also known for its many cultural aspects, from ancient castles to beautiful pieces of modern art, making it a truly spectacular destination.
When choosing what to do once you’re here, it pays to plan ahead, since something is always going on and you’ll be able to attend many different events – as well as see many of the attractions available!
Booking accommodation for your holiday is probably one of the first things that you do when you’re planning to get away.
However, we know how difficult it can be trying to pick the perfect one for you; is a hotel better for your needs or would you benefit more from booking yourself a villa for your stay? Why would you want to stay in a mobile home rather than B&B?
We’re here to clear up that confusion, and help you choose the right accommodation for your holiday – no matter where you’re jetting off to!

“All the children had a great time.”
Finistère is one of Brittany’s four departments. Its name comes from the Latin Finis Terrae, which means the end of the earth. Finistère is the most westerly department in France and is rich in history and culture. The maritime traditions are famous; Finistère is a coastal mecca with delightful seaside resorts and fishing ports.
Brittany’s cuisine is rich and varied, especially in Finistère. Its affluent fishing grounds are harvested by Finistère’s 4,000 fishermen. As a leading fresh fish producer, Finistère makes up 25% of the national catch.
Quimper is the capital of the Finistère department in Brittany, in the north-west of France. The name comes from the Breton kemper that means ‘confluence of rivers’ due to the city having been built in a place where several rivers meet. Located 485 km from Paris, it’s 15km from the Atlantic coast and about 18km from our wonderful Jantom Holidays location.
It’s considered to be the cultural heart of Brittany, and the city of art and history, as it sports a vast cultural and historical background. You can walk through the city and visit the stunning buildings located in Quimper or visit a local park, for a fun-filled holiday!

But, does it really have to be this way? Here at Jantom Holidays, we’ve decided to give you a factual guide to the best time to come and visit us here in Brittany – ignoring all the usual reasons!
