This island off the shores of Brittany is known for its dramatic rocky coast, which has acted as a muse of sorts for stories by Flaubert and Dumas, and canvases by Matisse and particularly Monet, who painted a whole series on the subject. You may be inspired to hike a portion of the walking path that follows the entire coastline, an exhilarating way to observe the stone spires and sea caves. These rough contours enclose 150 small villages scattered about a tranquil green countryside, with plenty of cozy places to relax and indulge in the freshest of seafood, and Breton specialties of crêpes and cider.
