Broceliande, Brittany

2.9
#18 of 35 in Nature in Brittany
Visit the legendary Broceliande that has ties with Arthurian Romance, most notably a magical fountain and the tomb of the legendary figure Merlin. The forest first appears in 1160 literature--such as the "Roman de Rou," a verse chronicle written by Wace--and is legendary because of its uncertain location and unusual weather. Walk a few steps from the tomb to visit the Fountain of Youth, and then go to the Valley of No Return to view the Fairies' Mirror and The Golden Tree.

  • We had the opportunity to discover the beautiful forest Brocéliande in carriage led by Alain and his family. Throughout this trip, we were accompanied by Guillaume, a great storyteller guide, which makes us discover the sights of Brocéliande (the garden of the monks, the Golden tree, the mirror of the fairies...) to the rhythm of the Arthurian Legends. We have embarked on his legendary stories punctuated humor. The warm atmosphere and the beauty of the landscapes won us during this trip from 3:30 where we have not seen the time spent! Thanks to the team for its friendliness and, despite the high heat - walk performed Aug. 28 under 30 ° C, well Yes, in Britain, it can be very hot too ;) Do not hesitate to contact the office of tourism of Brocéliande and to appeal to a storyteller guide for your next walks in the forest, you won't be more amazed.
