To meet the specific needs of people with disabilities and help them get the most out of their stay, Brittany’s Regional Tourism Committee has created a special website www.handi-tourismebretagne.com.

Here you’ll find:

  • Specially-adapted holidays, including accommodation ideas and activities
  • All the hotels, campsites, gîtes, bed and breakfasts and holiday villages with Brittany’s  ‘Tourisme & Handicap’ label
  • Restaurants in Brittany with the ‘Tourisme & Handicap’ label
  • Specially-adapted activities, walks, and visits to local places of interest
  • Tourist Offices with the ‘Tourisme & Handicap’ label
  • A list of associations and structures offering home care services for people with disabilities requiring everyday help during their stay in Brittany
  • A list of specially-adapted transport services for getting to Brittany and travelling around the region

The www.handi-tourismebretagne.com website has been created to make it easy to use for visitors with visual, hearing, mental or physical impairments. It is compatible with technological aids such as screen-readers, voice synthesisers and specifically-adapted keyboards, etc.

For each type of disability a specific search engine allows visitors to find all the relevant offers available.

‘Tourisme & Handicap’ Label

The ‘Tourisme & Handicap’ label offers people with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy specially adapted facilities, either individually or with family or friends, whether it be for a museum visit, a stay in a hotel or a trek.
Brittany has adhered to this initiative from the very start, aiming to ensure that its structures are accessible to as many people as possible. So far, more than 180 different places have been awarded the quality label.

Four types of disability are covered by the label (mental handicap, physical disability, visual or hearing impairment). The services offered by the establishments with the ‘Tourisme & Handicap’ label include at least one of these disabilities.

The ‘Tourisme & Handicap’ label focuses on the accessibility of tourist-related facilities such as:

  • accommodation (hotels, campsites, holiday apartments, furnished rentals, bed and breakfasts, youth hostels)
  • restaurants
  • tourist attractions and leisure facilities (museums, zoos, aquariums, sporting activities, etc.)
  • natural beauty spots and tourist sites
  • tourist centres and places providing tourist information
