Family holidays in Brittany and visit of the "Poete Ferrailleur" museum

Spending your family holidays in Brittany means discovering a land of legends anchored in a mysterious nature, such as in the famous forest of Brocéliande! Around, we find cities of character with exceptional heritage, such as Josselin, La Gacilly or Rochefort en Terre.

This Breton journey will first take you to visit the regional capital: Rennes! A young and creative city, Rennes is a great playground for artists. Frescoes, sculptures and monumental installations dress the urban landscape and allow an alternative discovery of the city! Then you will head to Inland Brittany, with its unspoiled nature, its moors and small Breton villages with traditional architecture and incredible charm!

Day 1: Arrival in Rennes

Day 2: Street-art tour in Rennes
Art is not necessarly in museums and galleries, it is also displayed in the streets. With internationally renowned local artists like WAR !, Mioshe and Dino Voodoo, the city has become a pampered street art scene!

Day 5: La Gacilly
For this day we advise you to visit the village of La Gacilly and its photo festival. Every year, La Gacilly is transformed into a “village in pictures”, through its thirty open-air galleries. Thus the photographs dress the streets, the gardens, offering an immersive and ambulatory experience in this charming village of craftsmen. The public space then becomes a scenic space, shared and accessible to all free of charge.
Day 6: Original visit to a scrap dealer
In a small village in the middle of nowhere, there is a world where a funny character comes to life, rustles, takes on color, plays with recycled objects and nature. For many years this DIY artist has been sensitive to the world around him, reinventing it with his creativity. Animated sculptures, useless machines, offbeat architectures, gardens, films, games, eco-homes, everything is humor, magic and emotion. The buildings and magical gardens of this tangle of gears trace an imaginary path of beautiful freedom.
