Idea n°1: Family get-togethers

Enjoying your vacation in Brittany as a family is great. But finding something to occupy the kids when it’s raining is even better! The good news is that in Brittany, there are plenty of activities to keep you and the kids entertained… while staying out of the rain!

The to-do list of things to do with the whole family in Brittany :

🎳 B owling: the youngest has his first strikes in his sights!

⚽️ Sports: are you more into climbing or indoor soccer?

🏴‍☠️ Elopirate: let the kids set sail in a pirate-themed indoor theme park.

👀 La Cité des Télécoms: enjoy a unique experience with the kids in the immersive Radôme course, themed back to the future.

🔑 An Escape Game: an unusual and friendly game, where you try to escape to get an aperitif to share with the family! An Escape Game to say the least… festive.

Tip no. 2: Make your own canvas

Comedy or thriller? Drama or adventure? Whatever your preference, a rainy day is the ideal time to perfect your film culture on the Pink Granite Coast. Comfortably ensconced in an armchair, you’ll be fishing for popcorn (with salted butter caramel). It’s better to be here than out there: it’s a no-brainer.

📌 Practical info: See you at Les Baladins cinema, near the center of Lannion, or at Plestin’s cinéma le Douron for the next screening!

Tip no. 3: Discover nature from the inside out

Who says you have to be outdoors to discover the secrets of Brittany’s nature? Certainly not us! On the Côte de Granit Rose, while the rain is in full swing, set off to meet the most beautiful animals of the seabed, reach for the stars at the Planetarium or play naturalist on the Ile Grande!

🐟 L’Aquarium Marin de Trégastel: Here’s an aquatic visit just in time! Young and old go on guided tours, discovery outings or to meet Channel marine animals like stingrays and dogfish at this superb aquarium in Brittany.

🐦 La station LPO de l’Ile Grande: Visit the Sept-Îles National Nature Reserve, and more specifically its museum, to explore a space entirely dedicated to the marine world. The highlight of the visit will be the breathtaking view of the gannet colony! A great way to keep warm while keeping an eye on Brittany’s biodiversity.

⭐️ Le Planétarium de Bretagne: Your vacation on the Côte de Granit Rose will be filled with the stars, especially during the 10 astronomy shows on offer at the Planétarium de Bretagne. Ready to travel to the infinite and beyond?

Tip no. 4: Warm up to Brittany’s traditions

Fermentation, maturing, brewing… If you’re unfamiliar with these terms, it’s a good sign that you need to visit a distillery on the Côte de Granit Rose! Once you’ve learned all the ins and outs of the trade, a tasting session will take center stage… There’s no doubt about it, Brittany is winning you over!

Our favorite visits in the region :

* Alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health, consume in moderation.

Tip n°5: Try your hand at creative activities

If art is second nature to you, roll up your sleeves – you’ve got your work cut out for you with Brittany’s multitude of creative activities! Whether it’s soap, seaweed cooking or pottery, our passionate craftspeople will be delighted to share their secrets with the whole family.

Our favorites ❤️ in Brittany:

🫧 La Savonnerie de l’Intendant: Not very good with your hands? No one will pass you a bar of soap: instead, we’ll teach you how to make one during this activity! Color, scent, texture: it lathers up when it rains in Brittany!

🌱 L’écologie joyeuse®: Make rainy day rhyme with ecology! During this green activity, seaweed cooking and aromatherapy become child’s play.

🏺 Atelier Moca: Want to go all “Ghost” on a rainy afternoon? Initiate yourself and your loved ones to the art of pottery. It’s so satisfying to see your creation come to life at your fingertips!

Tip n°6: Treat yourself to a gourmet break

What better way to fill up on specialities than at a good Breton restaurant? While it’s pouring rain outside, you’ll be able to warm your body… and your taste buds with tasty treats! Far breton or kouign-amann, where do you start?

Put your feet under the table in Brittany 👇🏻

  • Le Truc Café: Between two tastings of local produce, enjoy a game of board games.
  • Café Théodore: A space with a worldly feel, inviting you to indulge in a voyage of discovery.

Tip N°8: Bubble in a water park

If you’re not a fan of rain, but you’re not afraid of getting wet, head for an aquatic centre in Brittany! Covered and (above all) heated, it’s the ideal place to watch your figure while doing a few laps in the pool… Or to take it easy in the spa area. Which will you choose? We’ll let you make up your own mind!

The Bretons have been close to rain for so long that they’ve had the opportunity to study it. Let me tell you, the Bretons have studied rain! They’ve even created a word for each of its subtleties:

💧 Glav bihan: The drizzle (which apparently gives a pretty complexion by the way!).

💧💧 Glav bras: Heavy rain.

💧💧💧 Glav pill: The driving rain.

💧💧💧💧 Glav pill polos: The downpour.
