Côtes-d’Armor, department 22 Côtes-du-Nord was one of the original 83 departments created during the French Revolution on March 4, 1790. It was created from part of the former province of Bretagne. Its name was changed in 1990 to Côtes-d’Armor ("ar mor" meaning by the sea in Breton). The name also has a historical connotation recalling the Roman province of Armorica. Côtes-d’Armor is located in Brittany at the western tip of France. This exhilarating department borders the English Channel, it is therefore very close to the UK and easily reachable by road, rail, air or sea. The Côtes-d’Armor attracts both visitors and those looking for a life changing move who long to discover the Breton traditions. The economy and popularity benefit from the sea with many water sports, local produce and activities relating to the abundance of harbours in this region. The Côtes-d’Armor offers many and various landscapes, from the peaceful 350km long coastline along the Channel to the beautiful countryside filled with stone houses and quaint villages. The coastline includes both small and large sandy beaches majestic pink-granite boulders, medieval castles like the famous Fort la Latte. Saint Brieuc’s bay is the second largest in France, after Mont St Michel In spite of its perfect location and precious natural assets, the Côtes-d’Armor department is still the second least expensive area in Brittany There are regular and inexpensive flights from London (Stansted) and East Midlands to the small and friendly Dinard airport via Ryanair. For those who are travelling from the UK, the ferry is another popular choice, the Côtes-d’Armor being served by Brittany Ferries and Condor Ferries to St Malo. There are also daily flights and ferries from the Channel Islands. You deserve to come and enjoy a few days away from your UK base, stroll along the fantastic beaches, dine out on the finest moules marinières à la crême in France followed by crêpes, the most famous Breton dessert, washed down by the local cider - then view some amazing properties, go on, spoil yourself!.
Living in the Uk was getting a bit stale, I had worked in the printing industry since the age of 16 and the last 15 years or so ran my own print business. The whole family fancied a change so we bought our house in Brittany in 2004 and moved here early the following year with our 5 year old son. We were not looking for the life changing experience that some may seek but to have a more relaxed and stress free lifestyle and we have certainly achieved it! I spent the first few years renovating our property - one day it might be finished! Lisa, my wife, began working for Leggett Immobilier in 2007 and after helping wherever possible behind the scenes and seeing how rewarding it was to find someone their dream home, I decided to join in 2009. We love the beautiful coast, the people, the fresh air, the traffic free roads, the cider and helping to find the right home for those who also want to enjoy living their dream! I look forward to meeting youView Brittany Information Homepage
