A disconnected getaway

A relaxing and rejuvenating holiday is important before resuming the hectic life that many of us live at 100 km/h. There is not much missing to make the most of it, and there are many places in Brittany to enjoy Nature while forgetting, for a moment, the worries of everyday life.

Here are our tips to make the most of your disconnected getaway

  • Forget screens. Easier said than done and yet, it’s essential! Only keep your phone to take souvenir photos of Brittany and forget about work emails and social networks!
  • Engage in a sports activity. In Brittany, you’re spoilt for choice! A bike tour in Finistère, a hike in the Monts d’Arrée, surfing on the tip of Quiberon or a horseback ride on the beaches of Northern Brittany. The hardest part will be making a choice… Or not! The goal is to get away from it all and stop thinking about your professional life.
  • Dare to be bored! What a joy to be able to have time to be bored, to think about nothing and to enjoy only the sound of the birds or the surf of the water. Even if this activity can scare more than one, it is nevertheless effective to revive your creativity!

Enjoy the joys of a Table d’hôtes
Tables d'hôtes Bretagne

There’s nothing quite like the joys of a good dinner after a busy day. Charme Bretagne offers tables d’hôtes to enjoy good food during your stay. You can then enjoy it in a flowery garden near Brocéliande, with your feet in the water of a swimming pool in the Gulf of Morbihan or well installed near Mont Saint Michel. There’s nothing like a menu featuring local Breton products or a cuisine that evolves with the seasons to get away from it all for a meal!
