Hiking, Nature & Reliance on Life on Brehat Island
from 250 € / p. from 4 to 8 personsInfos & Booking
The island of Bréhat in Côtes-d'Armor is a beautiful place, among the most beautiful in Brittany, and highly frequented during the summer season. Yet, it contains mysterious, magical places, which can only be discovered in peace, after the departure of the last ferry making the connection with the continent. Brehat then becomes what she is. And this stay is the opportunity to discover it well, by its secret paths, its passages by the sea, to contemplate it with the different lights of the day. Take the time to "breathe".
Bréhat is an island without a car. An island that invites to calm down, to relax. Where time goes differently. It is an island located on a granite base, whose powerful energy is felt greatly. An island surrounded by the Channel, whose tidal coefficients are among the highest in France (more than 10 meters difference between low and high tides). An island whose vegetation is exceptional for its location: there are agapanthus, hydrangeas, palm, banana, mimosa. The mild climate allows its plants to develop in a grand way ... a marvel to contemplate, especially in this season (late May) when they are at their peak.
This trip is an invitation to take care of you, to enter into a gentle reliance with nature and its elements so present in this place. An invitation to walk, to focus on oneself, to touch the essentials.
This time is a parenthesis for oneself, to combine the discovery of a place of our beautiful Earth that deserves the detour, to take time for oneself, to walk in full consciousness, to practice daily different approaches to connect to oneself, to everything.
