Bretagne General: 23 reviews and 25 photos
Favorite thing: The typical Breton house is built of granite with a slate roof. Granite being expensive, modern houses tend to reduce the actual stone to door and window frames but the older ones are completely built of stone. Granite and slate are exacavated locally. The granite can be of a variety of hues, typically light grey, yellow-brown or pink. The latter one comes from the cliffs of pink granite in the North of the region and is very particular. Its colour comes from the pink feldspath part of the stone is made of. The slate can go from deep black to grey or yellow.
