Brittany (or Bretagne) is a unique area of France, in culture, history, and legends. Reputed to be the place of Arthurian legends, it has roots in Celtic culture which tie it to England across the channel. Remaining independent until the sixteenth century, it has a certain detachment from the rest of the nation-- while at the same time remaining intrinsically French. The coastline of Brittany, where this villa is located, rivals the Cote d'Azur with its warm white-sand beaches, rugged cliffs, and offshore rock formations. Locquirec, the coastal town nearest this French vacation villa, is located between the port town of Roscoff and Perros-Guirec. Roscoff is an ancient port town, at various times the landing point of Mary Queen of Scots and Prince Charlie (the Young Pretender). Today, the ferry lines to Plymouth and Cork have been revived. Sights in town include the 16th century Notre-Dame-de-Croas-Batz, with an ornate belfry, and the old harbor, where you can catch a ride out to the Ile de Batz. Once feared because of its resident dragon, today it is loved for a plethora of sandy beaches. Locquirec is a small city and bathing resort with a disco, museum, cinema, and other shops and restaurants.
