Here at One Off Places we’re feeling that Brittany is being a bit underrated, so this post is going to showcase our top six places to stay in Brittany, and remind you why it’s a fabulous destination choice.
If you’re coming from the UK, it’s just a hop across the channel. It means you can take your own car (or rely on one of the many budget airlines for a good value flight) and you won’t end up spending most of your holiday travelling to and from your villa / holiday house.
Brittany is one of France’s most rugged regions and is a fascinating mixture of amazing coastline, charming towns, ancient woodland and magical islands. What is more, it can provide you with a wide array of holiday rental opportunities, from cottages to castles and all points in between.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that holiday properties with any sort of character and eccentricity will cost the earth. Generic chain hotels and boring run-of-the-mill villas and apartments are always cheaper, right? Wrong. It is VERY possible to find quirky accommodation for under £50 a night, so much so that you will actually find it harder to narrow them down than you might think! Granted, you may have to think a little more outside the box in terms of time of year, location, and style of property. But if you’re prepared to be flexible and use your imagination then the world really can be your oyster for a very reasonable price.
In these times of financial uncertainty, exotic long-haul holidays are not something we can always justify. But here’s the good news: a holiday cottage in England offers a fantastic alternative, equally as exciting and colourful in its own way. You don’t need to travel half way round the world to find beaches and mountains, wildlife and scenery, art and architecture, and a wealth of mouth-watering wines and cuisines.
If you’re looking for a European holiday villa and you don’t want to blow the budget then Greece is an excellent choice. This does of course make it a very popular destination, but it’s easy enough to get off the beaten track if you want to, and you certainly don’t need to spend fortunes to stay somewhere lovely, whether it’s a traditional village dwelling or a luxurious villa overlooking the sea.
In cost order from low to high, here are five Greek villas that won’t blow the budget…
