    Ewen is not an islander. He arrived in Bréhat by chance. Then he fell in love with it to the point of taking his visitors behind the postcard scenery. Trained in agro-ecology and botany, Ewen looks at things you don't see any more: bramble, nettle, plantain, fern... He knows the discreet plants of pebble beaches, moors and seaside lawns. He'll tell you how they grow, how to cook them and whether they're medicinal. Ewen also likes to explain how human activity, stone-cutting, agriculture and tourism have shaped these exotic garden landscapes alongside natural areas. There's a choice of six original guided walks lasting between 1? and 2 hours. In groups of five or more, learn how to cook with plants by booking a plant-based culinary workshop. If you want to see the whole of the Bréhat archipelago, opt for a mix of land and sea, including a half-day sailing trip on Eulalie, an old rigging replica of a former sardine ship.
