l'île de bréhat...

sometimes referred to as "la perle des cotes-d'armor", this twinned island paradise off the coast of northern brittany, l'île de bréhat, is also known as "l'île des fleurs et des rochers roses"...the masses of rugged rocks along the shorelines actually glow a golden pink colour in the sunshine...and the unusually warm microclimate is conducive to lushly blooming gardens of palm, eucalyptus, fig, mimosa and camellia trees, hedges of hydrangeas and the islanders' favourite blue agapanthus...
