Climate

You will never see the sky change so quickly anywhere else.

With the English Channel on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the peninsula enjoys a true oceanic climate – both mild and invigorating. It’s never very cold, and it’s never too hot.

On the north coast, the prevailing winds come from the north-west on the coast of Finistère, with a few sheltered areas such as the Isle of Bréhat, around which flows the Gulf Stream, a warm ocean current that helps create micro-climates.

The south coast benefits from a sunnier, warmer, drier climate than the north coast. Carnac (Morbihan), for instance, has only 128 rainy days per year on average and 2,055 hours of sunshine. The average summer temperature in Morbihan is 18°C. Finistère’s south coast also enjoys good weather with the Fouesnant and Bigouden areas having the added advantage of a micro-climate.

To sum up, the different areas of Brittany have sharply contrasting climates. Of all the non-mountainous areas in France, Brittany is where the greatest differences in climate are to be found.
