Brittany is known for some of the best summer sailing grounds in France, and where many families spend their cruising vacations. Brittany is a former independent Celtic kingdom, now incorporated into France. It was at one time called Less, Lesser or Little Britain (in opposition to Great Britain). Brittany occupies a large peninsula in the north-west of France, lying between the English Channel to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south.

The historical province of Brittany is divided into five departments: Finistère in the west, Côtes-d’Armor in the north, Ille-et-Vilaine in the north-east, Loire-Atlantique in the south-east and Morbihan in the south, on the Bay of Biscay.
