Obviously depends on what you like.

However if you like visiting venerable old well preserved towns, both Fougeres and Vitré are on an obvious route from Normandy to La Rochelle and well worth a visit.

In fact there are many  attractive fortified towns on the border between France and Brittany.

The Gulf of Morbian is beautiful..........have visited Ile aux moines pretty little island........................along with many other places :)

NB if you get to la Rochelle you really must visit Ile de Ré

Hi - I'm totally biased as I live here but I can throughougly recommend Finistere! You've got the most westerly point in France, lots of amazing coastal scenery, follow the coastal path, take in the islands and lighthouses, the pretty harbours etc  - really depends what you are into.  Have a look at www.escapetofinistere.com there are ideas of places to visit and places to stay,  


Hope this helps!

Sorry I was not very clear....I know La Rochelle isn't in Brittany but as I have heard lovely things about it, I wondered if there was anywhere slightly further north IN BRITTANY that may be just as pretty.

We will be driving from the Domfront area in Normandy but only have a couple of days free....without the dogs....so would like to head off somewhere new....

Any suggestions gratefully received.

La Rochelle is lovely but it's in the Poitou Charente not Brittany.
