Shade 1: Aquamarine blue,

the feet in water 

 

 

Ideal temperature for active in the water, perfect weather for a walk on the coast... All the lights are green (or rather blue!) for enjoy the month of September in Brittany. Take a paddle, a tube of sunscreen (yes yes) and a bit of motivation: head for the Arguenon for a kayak ride. Unless you prefer to stroll along the Rance!

Our good plan : the pass for 10 sessions in a nautical center to try your hand at catamaran or windsurfing. Promised, at the end of your stay in Brittany, you will have enough to make the athletes blush who will show up on the beach next summer!

Our advice for enjoying Brittany in September: rediscover Cap Fréhel, which takes shape in a whole new light once the summer season is over.

Shade 2: celadon green

we go green!

Does green suit you better? Brittany in September is also a huge playground for lovers of golf, bike or hiking. Shall we put on sneakers? Here are 3 ways to enjoy the Indian summer while keeping your feet on the ground:

  1. Swing at the Saint-Cast-le-Guildo or Sables-d'Or-les-Pins golf courses
  2. Cross the GR34 (and take the opportunity to pick up the waste accumulated this summer…)
  3. Cycle from Dinan to Évran, along the canal or along the Rance, on the cycle route

Our advice for enjoying Brittany in September: take a breath of fresh air in the wide open spaces of Brittany once the tranquility of the place has been restored.

Shade 3: Tangerine orange

from sunrise to sunset!

With the Indian summer comes the arrival of orange hues, spectacular sunsets and inimitable lights. Your mission ? Fill a wicker basket with good local products, take out the checkered tablecloth and the molkky, head to the beach for an impromptu picnic facing the sunset. The most courageous can even climb on a paddle board to indulge in a few paddle strokes!

 

Our advice for enjoying Brittany in September: rub shoulders with the mildness of Dinan and the golden light on the stones of its houses. A privileged period to appreciate the medieval city, far from the crowd.

Shade 4: midnight blue

the last mild summer evenings

While everywhere in France, everyone is putting their noses back in their files and impatiently waiting for recess, the campsites are emptying to welcome the privileged! Those for whom the holidays continue in Indian summer time, far from the summer hustle and bustle. And if you are one of those who have already braved the return to school, a weekend in Brittany in September should make you wait until the next vacation. On the program for your stay in Brittany: nights under the stars (depending on the temperature) and perfecting the art of recognizing the constellations!
