Information on Bretagne (Brittany) and Property Available for Sale through Leapfrog Properties
Brittany, located in the north-western tip of France is very popular with the British due to its proximity to the UK and its long and varied coastline. The climate here is mild due to the Gulf Stream but often has to cope with harsh winter months inflicted by its Atlantic position. Sailing, windsurfing and scuba-diving are popular here and its white sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, offshore islands and picturesque harbours make for a great setting. Access to the UK is via ferry links from Roscoff and St-Malo and its welcoming seaside towns such as Vannes, Dinan and Dinard makes Brittany an attractive prospect for second home buyers and those wishing to relocate.
Its agriculture and fishing account for 10% of France’s national production while industry is also thriving and Rennes, its capital, is an international centre for telecommunications research. Other popular areas to consider buying property are the Cote de Granit Rose, Benodet and the Morbihan coast around Quiberon in the Golfe de Morbihan. The major tourist town of Vannes lies on the Morbihan coast in the South, with its Cathedral, and attractive pedestrianised “Vieux Vannes” surrounded by little gardens and is certainly a strong candidate if acquiring a Property in Brittany.

Property for sale on the Brittany coast is not particularly cheap but further inland you can pick up some bargains and explore the wooded region and estuaries that surround it. The Gulf of Morbihan on the south coast is the most expensive area and popular with the French and has a larger percentage of new build properties than the rest of the region. However, inland there is more affordable family property (where most British buy) which tends to be situated on the border between the Morbihan and Cotes d’Armor departments with plenty of houses to renovate at very competitive prices. As a region it remains one of the cheapest in France.
Property in Brittany is mainly made from the local stone which is pink, grey and black with slate roofs. You can see evidence of this from the mystically shaped pink granite rocks that line part of the coastline here.
