Brest is the perfect location to have a short break in France. Come and have a complete change of scenery, fill your lungs with fresh, Atlantic Ocean air and enjoy amazing landscapes off the west coast of France.
This city was heavily demolished during the World War II during the Battle for Brest in 1944 -after the Allied invasion of Normandy, which had destroyed the huge German submarine base. It was of course, rebuilt after the war. Nevertheless, Brest and Brittany have always kept their strong cultural identity with their Celtic cultural heritage (nowadays, it is still considered as one of the six Celtic Nations).
