Caravan sites & campsites in Brittany

With some of the most impressive coastlines in France, and a generally sunny and dry climate throughout the summer months, you would be forgiven for thinking you were a long way from the UK.

But Brittany's proximity to the UK and good transport links make this region a firm favourite with visitors. Quaint towns, beautiful landscapes and miles of sandy beaches mean that there is plenty to do and a great choice of places to stay.

Brittany also has a rich archaeological heritage - colossal standing stones can be seen at Carnac and Belz. Picturesque market towns and fishing harbours, such as Pont-Aven and Vannes, make great day trips, whilst Quimper is famous for its pottery, medieval quarter and stunning cathedral.

Rennes, the regions capital, has a lively feel with bustling shops and nightlife, or perhaps try walking some or all of the long distance Brittany coastal path!

Wherever you go it will be difficult to resist Brittany's charm and beauty.

Top questions

How do I book an overseas site?

Overseas campsite bookings can easily be made on the Club website and "combined deals" are common when you book a campsite at the same time as your ferry crossing. Booking online means you save the £15 Contact Centre booking fee.

Does the Club take deposits for overseas bookings?

Yes, deposits for overseas bookings are calculated at 20% for a site and 25% for a ferry (unless it is a non-refundable ferry/Eurotunnel in which case full payment is due at time of booking). The final balance is due 10 weeks prior to travel.

Is the standard of overseas sites similar to that of the UK?

European campsites are star-rated by their own local authorities and can have different standards and regulations to the UK. However, the Club's travel team handpick and inspect our campsites so that members can be sure of a high standard.
