    Brest has a large harbour to enjoy plus the Chateu de Brest over looking the harbour, which is now also home to a naval museum. A few years ago I visited the Oceanopolis, which is well worth a visit. There are 3 different tempersture zones to explore. If the weather is kind to you, there are boat trips you can take from the harbour to the islands or just across the river. The harbour cruise qives you a nice view of the city. Not far outside the city are lovely little places like St Thegonnec, La roche Maurice etc with wonderful old churches. Further afield southwards there places like Carnac with its standing stones, Concarneau which has an island fortress in the harbour to explore & the wonderful cobbled old town of Auray, but I am not sure if you would have time to visit these places too. Lucky you Toyin this is my favorite area of France! Have a wonderful trip (~_~)
