Why stay here ...

Based on the outskirts of Quimper, this beautiful site occupies the grounds of a 17th-century manor by the banks of the River Odet. Converted outbuildings serve as the restaurant and bar, while the surrounding grounds offer some lovely walks.

Keen golfers will appreciate the nine-hole course, driving range and training bunker, while the Odet provides some peaceful spots to fish. Children will also find plenty to do, with a huge pool complex, mini-golf and kids’ clubs to enjoy.

Quimper is within walking distance of the site and has a stunning Gothic cathedral and 14th-century old town. Stop at the Place du Beurre for a crêpe or admire the local art at the Musée des Beaux Arts. The sandy beaches and rocky coves at Bénodet are also close by; visit Saint-Gilles beach for a sport of rock pooling.

Wouldn't stay again.

We booked a superior pitch (described as having own water, grey waste, fridge, garden furniture) on the basis that there were really bad reviews on here, but we really wanted to visit Quimper and thought the superior facilities would compensate! We found that the water was a shared tap, the grey waste was a shared soak away (situated under the water tap). Yes we did query with the site and the club (who were exceedingly helpful) and discovered that these were supposed to be shared facilities. The fridge turned up eventually and the garden furniture. The price also included wifi for the stay but we never got that working. The restaurant/bar closed earlier than advertised (by an hour on one night). No one could tell us when the shop opened (we were given 2 different times, then the next visit to reception they admitted they didn't know). The toilet block was not cleaned for the 5 days we were there (nor was it checked). Security is lax - there are barriers at the entrance but you can drive round by moving 3 small cones. On our last night they took on 9 travelling units who were playing load music until 1am in the morning and no action was taken. None of the staff seemed at all interested in the campers. We booked through the club and they were very helpful when I rang to check what I thought I'd booked and they mediated with the site on my behalf - to no avail though!

Pleasant stay

We stayed here recently and had a very pleasant stay. We were allocated an extremely large pitch with EHU and water. The facilities were good, lovely hot showers. Very scenic walk along the river to the town. The streets are pedestrianised and cobbled so it is good for walkers. Lots of cafes and restaurants. Obviously it is not high season when we stayed so we had a different experience to others there in high season.

Will never go again

We booked to stay at L'Orangerie middle of June 2019 and paid extra for a larger pitch. On arrival we were allocated probably the smallest pitch on the site - which we naturally complained about and were given an alternative but even that was less than we booked. As others have said, there was a wedding on the first night and the Gents sanitaires were closed off, meaning Gents had to use the Ladies facilities - not particularly good for either sex. During the evening, some of the guests came into the campsite looking for more toilets and when they couldn't find any they relieved themselves where they could in full view of the campers- disgusting. The next day, the Gents facilities were opened up and I can honestly say they were the worst I have ever seen - not used but seen - they were absolutely filthy and frankly unsafe healthwise. It took until nearly 1030 that morning for them to be cleaned - well past the time campers use facilities. In addition, vehicles were using the path to the toilets and churning it up quite badly which meant more dirt in the toilets and more dirt in everybody's vans. We have since made a formal complaint which seems to have fallen on deaf ears and were offered no recompense for a very expensive, thoroughly unpleasant stay. Clearly the management of this site concentrate on satisfying Wedding guests much to the expense of campers. Quimper is a nice little town but we will never return as a result of the horrendous experience we had at L'Orangerie. Never again.

Could be so much more

We stayed in May this year but there was some minor issues. The facilities were not cleaned daily and when we were there they had wedding on, consequently the men's facilities was closed and they had to use the ladies. The swimming pool wasn't open, the shop wasn't open and the restaurant/bar seemed to only open when somebody could be bothered to open it !! The site is in an excellent position and setting. It has fantastic facility's when available !! ok the pitches are slightly overgrown but they were large and did have easy access.

Good site for a short stay

Arriving at the end of September we found all but the most basic facilities were closed (which we expected), which makes this site quite expensive for what you get. There were not many occupied pitches, but as one toilet block was closed most people were pitched together at one end of the site. Unlike previous reviewers we didn't find the place untidy or excessively overgrown - who wants hedges trimmed like a show garden anyway?.The toilet and dishwashing facilities were kept clean, despite bad weather causing some mud to be trampled in - this was inevitable, but the cleaner did a good job. The reception is some distance from the site, but that's not too much of a nuisance. More of a nuisance is that to use the foot and cycle path into Quimper you have to go all the way back past reception to enter the path and then double back. Any direct access from the site is fenced off, presumably for security reasons, but it does add 10 minutes or so to the walk into town. This is a good site if you want to visit Quimper, but would not go back otherwise. We obviously can't comment on the facilities for families in high season, but they appear to be good.
