Vive La Revolution with 15% off Le Boat’s Brittany Cruises

March 29, 2017 Cruise Deals No Comments Email Email

Burst into the time of the revolution when Chateau de Blain on Brittany’s shore was set alight before serving as a barracks and a prison. This monument steeped in history once defended Brittany from invaders yet now it stands like a beacon welcoming Le Boat’s occupants on a trip of immense French culture. 

Brittany, lying in the Northwest of France, is one of the greatest historic provinces of France. Its Celtic heritage is what sets it apart from the rest of France. From its walled cities and castles to extravagant churches to traditional manors scattered liberally across the countryside to major cathedrals and quaint, tiny chapels, Brittany is for explorers.

Relax up on the deck as you past cruise shores bristled with defensive castles and forts and lush green paddocks. Experience a land of prehistoric mysticism, proud tradition and culinary wealth. Discover Brittany’s “galettes”, a special type of crepes, served with sausages, cheese, bacon and mushrooms and delicious “kir” a cider cocktail made with blackcurrant and cherry and dance with the locals at their fest-noz (night festivals) that take place almost every weekend. Explore undiscovered gems like Paimpont Forest, linked to King Arthur and Merlin the forest still has a touch of magic about it.

Visit the remarkable Abbey of St. Sauveur in Redon, which was founded in 832 A.D and survived the Hundred Year War, visit Yve’s Rocher’s HQ where you can wander around the botanical garden filled with 1100 species of plants .

From historic battlegrounds to thick forests perfect for exploring, Le Boat gives guests an authentic experience to suit individual paces and interests. Le Boat holidays in Brittany start from $2,190 for up to 6 people on a Calypso boat for 7 nights.
