Fancy France in May

Post by Kata » Feb 6th, '18, 20:36

I'm off to France in May via Brittany Ferries. Looking to go down South at a leisurely rate as taking a pillion. Also, Im definitely NOT camping as it always rains when i even think about it.

Anyway, if other peeps would like to come along too give me a shout.

If you're heading down the West coast, look at the D785 from Morlaix to Quimper - nice start to the journey, like Dartmoor without speed limits & with sunshine. Cuts off the corner somewhat too.

Even worth a detour if coming back early, head to Brest at Rennes & pick up the D785 again.

Have fun, can't make it in May but will do something later in year.

Kata - are you inviting us to share in your holiday or just the commute to where you're going?
Eitherway I'd like more details please.

Cheers for the info. Will add it to the list of places to look at for the trip.

Share holiday - all or part. Im easy really. :-)

I havnt yet got a route or accommodation sorted but plan to get a route sorted by the end of the month then start booking hotels. Been wanting to get to that sodding big bridge down south of france for a while. Also stopping at Tours as the food is lovely.



Open to ideas.

Pm if interested.

Cheers
John
