Rennes is the charming fairy tale capital of Brittany and a beautiful city to explore. It’s also the perfect gateway to this idyllic region where you can experience the wonderful Breton culture that’s on our doorstep.
Flights from Guernsey to Rennes operate with an easy connection via Jersey.
It’s just a short 40 minute flight from Jersey to Rennes where you can hire a car and explore Brittany, or jump on the quick C6 bus to Rennes city centre.
From here you can also take high-speed TGV trains to explore Brittany, including Quimper, Vannes and Brest.
You can also travel to Paris, Marne-la-Vallée Chessy (Disneyland Paris), Nantes & Lyon.
While the car is perfect for exploring the Loire Valley, or visiting the chic resort of La Baule.
From iconic half-timber houses, to wandering the narrow streets, enjoying galleries or a peaceful stroll through Thabor Park, Rennes is the diverse capital of Brittany that’s waiting to be discovered.
From classy bistros and fine dining to wonderful crêpes, galettes and refreshing cider. Embrace the local cuisine and even find a restaurant with a secret terrace such as the Saint-Michel Prison.
Head southwest to the wonderfully chic La Baule, with a stunning 9km bay, boutiques, fine restaurants and pavement cafés to watch the world go by, no wonder it’s the fashionable go-to resort for Parisians.
Dinan, Dinard & St Malo
The Rance river runs through Dinan, complete with medieval charm, cobbled streets and 14th century castle. While St Malo, Dinard and other resorts along the coast offer a relaxed getaway.
Trains to Paris & beyond
