Armed with your paintball gun, you’ll soon be experiencing life in colour! And if you take a picnic or even a barbecue you’ll find the fun lasts even longer!

Brittany is a place where people like to have fun – and the party atmosphere is infectious! So a seaside festival in Brittany is all about having fun – and boats! It’s a time when a Breton fishing port becomes home to people of every age and origin, with sailors flying the flag for every nation under the sun. It’s the perfect place to enjoy past and present, local traditions and ideas from abroad, and have a great time with your friends to the sounds and rhythms of Celtic music.

Hire a bike and discover the islands

A vélo sur les îles

Less than 90 minutes away by boat, the islands of Brittany are perfect for exploring with your friends. You can hire a bike for a few hours or a few days, and cycle around these islands in complete freedom – made even more enjoyable by the number of quiet lanes and almost total absence of hills! There’s no better way of discovering these offshore lands than by cycling from port to beach, cafe to water-sports centre – whenever the fancy takes you!
