Welcome to Rennes 2 University, 

Degemer mat e Breizh! (welcome to Brittany!)




Weather in Brittany is generally mild, in winter as in summer. We are under an oceanic type of weather.  The ocean and the Channel are of great influence since we are a long peninsula with very active sea on 3 sides and one the world's most dramatic tidal regime. No point in Brittany is more than 80 km away from the sea at most.



This means that even in summer, you might want to have a light rain jacket handy.  Dreezle episodes are not uncommon. At night and early in the morning, you might enjoy having the comfort of a sweater, especially if the sky is clear.

The forecast for our week is pretty good,  with reasonable temperatures around constant 18-20 celcius during the day, so far no heavy rain is on the map, to the contrary, a good gentle sun seems to be willing to greet you!

Especially on the excursion day, we strongly advise you to get a cap, a hat for the sun, as gentle as it can seems, it might burn with cruelty.  In Brittany we have high levels of UV. Good UV protection cream is always a good idea as well as sun glasses. 

We'll keep you of course updated daily on the weather, especially for the excursion day.

You'll hear people say (especially french people) that it is "always raining in Brittany"... ( yet Brittany is a "green country"). Science shows they are dead wrong  you'll be the witness of how prejudiced they are!


Brittany is really not the worst place to be on the planet!
