I studied Geography in the 4th grade with Sister Clara. A long time ago! We studied countries like Persia, Czechoslovakia, Ceylon and the USSR, which are now known as Iran, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Sri Lanka and Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldovia, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.
So when my friends at Holiday Rentals sent me some info on Finistere I had to learn more about it. Finistere is in France, Brittany more specifically. I also learned this...Finistère has a temperate climate. Temperate, meaning NOT EXTREME. Not extreme as is no below zero winds chills and no near blizzard conditions. That in itself sounds so very appealing to me right now, as I sit shivering and watching the snow fall and fall and fall.
A little getaway would be so wonderful right now and Finistere might be just the place, with it's beautiful coastline and rich heritage. If you're also looking for a getaway, you might want to try a private rental, instead of hotel rooms and you could save up to 40%!
