Picture 1 By car

Brittany is the only motorway-free region of France which happily means there are no motorway tolls to pay. Instead, it is served by a fast and efficient network of dual carriageways that have a speed limit of 110km (68mph) resulting in easy, stress-free driving.

Did you know?

It is said that Brittany’s free road network is a legacy of Anne de Bretagne who ordered the abolition of tolls between Brittany and France while married to the King of France. In fact, it is as a result of a political decision taken in the 60s to open up the region to the rest of the country.
