Situated in the extreme west of the European mainland, and so enjoying 3,000 km of coastline, Brittany covers 27,208 km2, i.e. 5% of the surface area of France. Extending 300 km from east to west and 150 km from north to south, this point of land which projects out so distinctively into the sea is easily identifiable on a map of France. The interpenetration of land and sea gives Brittany its diverse landscapes. The region's climate combines the invigorating effects of the seaside and the mildness of its seasons.
