Great Golfing holidays in BrittanyIf you're a lover of Golf then you won't be disappointed with a holiday in our Brittany Gite as there's over 40 excellent golf courses spread over the 4 administrative departments of Cotes d'Armor, Finistere, Ille et Vilaine and Morbihan that make up Brittany; and as our Gite is pretty much in the middle of Brittany we're very well placed to be the base for either a Golfing holiday or to get in a round or two as part of your holiday break.
Spectacular Scenery and Fantastic FairwaysSome say that the courses of Brittany are only second in golfing quality behind Scotland, and whatever your personal standard of golf there are miles and miles of parkland, links, forest, hill-side, river-side and sea-side courses to play through. Many of the courses offer spectacular views over the Brittany countryside and the many sea-side courses offer particularly breathtaking scenery.
Comfortable and relaxing playThe golf courses in Brittany are surprisingly uncrowded. offer reasonably very priced play, and unlike some of the courses back home are welcoming and not in the least bit stuffy! Of course eating well is taken equally seriously in France and the club house afterwards won't disappoint either with fantastic food being served in comfort able surroundings.
