Averages for Brittany in September
If you’re lucky, September can provide an Indian summer, with warm temperatures averaging around 20C in the day. Enjoy romantic strolls along Brittany’s Emerald Coast or through the region’s forests. Swimming in the sea – currently at 18C - will be a refreshing challenge. Children will certainly not mind going for a little dip or a trip out to sea for fishing, wildlife spotting, or island excursions.
The festival scene starts to slow down in September, however, there are still more than five events you could attend. In Morbihan there is Pardon de Notre Dame du Roncier, or visiting Ille-et-Vilaine offers the Festival des Mines d’Or – to name but a couple.
September rainfall is the lowest of the entire year, which makes it a great time to visit the Huelgoet Forest. This forest is between Morlaix and Carhaix. It covers 10 square kilometres of land. Caves, moss-covered boulders, ‘the mushroom’ rock formation, and several trails provide outdoor entertainment for the entire family. It is also possible to camp at Arthur’s Camp or stay in Huelgoat village at a local inn.
Beaches like those in Rennes, which is the capital of Brittany, offer golden sand. The town also has art, medieval, and history quarters to explore. Shops of all kinds for adults and kids add to the entertainment in Rennes.
Roughly 55 hotels are available in Rennes alone. Whether you have a budget or wish to splurge, you can enjoy a comfortable hotel stay with en-suite bathrooms. Hotel Escale Oceania and Kyriad Rennes Nord are two establishments of modest cost, which are also considered clean and high quality. Mercure Rennes Centre Parlement is a little more per night, but they offer a lovely business hotel.
