Brittany, a superlative film location

Brittany, a superlative film location

With over 2 500 km of coastline, Brittany offers the largest sea frontage of the French coastline – from the Emerald coast to the coast of megaliths, the Armor region has a succession of sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, ria coasts and estuaries.

Inland, the Argoat region is made up of fields and hedges, open moors and woodland. Whether awe-inspiring or intimate, our landscapes form a remarkable natural heritage where wide open spaces alternate with delightful little hidden corners.

This diversity of settings can also be seen in the rich architectural heritage – for example, Brittany has more than 4 000 interesting castles, manors and country houses in a greater density than anywhere else in Europe. Towns full of art and history, ancient burgs and modern-day centres complement the list of this diversity which makes it easier to envisage all types of filming especially as Brittany benefits from the presence of many experienced professionals, actors and technicians.

Our office also can offer many services to you in addition to pre-locations : we can assist you to find liaisons with local authorities qualified, accommodations, technicians, actors, extras,…
