The beautiful unspoilt northern coast of Brittany between Roscoff and St Malo enjoys an exceptional climate due to the Gulf Stream. Alongside the rocky coastline, through deep-cut inlets and in the inland wooded valleys, we will discover some extraordinary gardens in secret locations. Most gardens have been extended by their present owners. They have been inspired by the climate, good soil and the ability to acclimatise plants from other parts of the world.
Our base is the contemporary, stylish Hotel Costans, situated on the cliffs above the attractive town of Perros-Guirec on the pink granite coast. Hydrangeas in full flower are eye-catching in early autumn.
Travel is by Eurostar from London St Pancras to Paris, a private transfer to the TGV train from Paris to Guingamp in Northern Brittany. We use a small quality local coach for the garden visits. Possibility to continue on to our Normandy tour by joining in Paris.
Relatively level waking, gardens extensive.
Can be combined with the Normandy tour (deduct £190 pp from the tour cost).
