Believe it or not, ‘Little Britain’ is one of the many names given to the French region of Brittany. This ties in with the French name for it, ‘Bretagne’, as compared to their name for Great Britain, ‘Grand Bretagne’. Settled by migrants from Cornwall and other Celtic regions of the British Isles, Brittany has its own distinct identity and even has its own language, Breton (or Brezoneg) which is very similar to Cornish.
I recently visited on a family holiday, staying in the region known as ‘Cornouaille’ in the south west of Brittany, near the city of Quimper. Some photos are online on my site, and all are available to buy as prints. Please feel free to have a browse by clicking here.
