Broceliande, Brittany
(3.2/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very nice to walk through the enchanted and isolated forest especially on hot summer days. If you like mythology and fairy tales, then you should come here. 
  • I loved this forest! With its fall color is beautiful! The mythical place of the forest are not well indicated it is better now having a GPS has brought hand. I will recommend the Val without return with his journey that makes us climb the height and see the extent of the forest and the rest of the trip made us penetrate in the forest with its small pond hidden including the mirror to the fairy! It is quiet and relaxing, it's a very beautiful forest

  • Brocéliande, we found it by chance and we are not disappointed. It is the gateway to a magical and mysterious world far from our stereotypical universe full of modern and computer gadgets... Apart from an effort to better attract visitors with a better markup, no complaints. We took the opportunity to:-admire the giant tree and the maximum of trees all extraordinary - see all the environment of Merlin (seen this mythical era) - make a good equipped market of good shoes, bags and adequate maps (the field is large) - do a long pause of restoration at the snack before leaving by car a good day to remember and more environmentally friendly.
