Côtes-d'Armor is a department in the region of Brittany, which is located in northwestern France.

History of Côtes-d'Armor Côtes-d'Armor was originally known as Côtes-du-Nord, meaning 'coast of the North' or 'North coast' in French. In 1990 the name was changed to Côtes-d'Armor, with 'ar mor' being 'the sea' in Breton (the original Celtic language of Brittany). Côtes-d'Armor was originally one of the 83 departments created during the French Revolution.

Climate and Geography Like the rest of Brittany, Côtes-d'Armor has a pretty warm, wet climate that can reach temperature highs of 86 °F in the summer months. Due to all the sun and frequent rainfall, Brittany is relatively green in most places.
With the English Channel to the North, Côtes-d'Armor is a popular tourist destination due to its clean, sandy beaches.
If you want an idea of what Côtes-d'Armor  looks like, the following video shows the department as filmed from the air. It's pretty breathtaking to see.
