Why stay here ...

A quiet, rural site near Concarneau, Les Prés Verts is run by a very welcoming family who speak good English. Their friendly nature is reflected in the site’s relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, which appeals to couples and younger families.

The spacious, grassy pitches are arranged in small groups and separated by low hedges, with some offering sea views. This being a more traditional site, facilities are limited but clean and modern, and a supermarket and bakery are within walking distance.

A small path leads directly from Les Prés Verts to a small, sandy cove where guests can bathe. There are also lots of coastal cycling paths nearby, and Concarneau can be reached by foot in under an hour. To the north is Quimper, which is worth a visit for its 14th century old town and half-timbered houses.

Peaceful and Relaxing

We stayed here for 10 days from 8th of July and had the most peaceful and relaxing break. The site is ideally located on the outskirts of Concarneau, and just a short walk from amazing beaches. The Caravan Club it is not, that's because its typically French, the shower block is clean with good hot water showers, the pool whilst not large is plenty big enough for the size of the site and certainly spotlessly clean. Unfortunately the owner was recovering from complications following surgery while we were there, however Sophie, his daughter and her mother could not have been more helpful and friendly, when asked if there was a way we were required to pitch up (bearing in mind the regimentation of club sites) Sophie explained - "its your holiday, pitch how you like" not because she didn't care, but at all times wanted us to be relaxed about our stay and enjoy. Would thoroughly recommend this site.

Needs to be re looked at by the Caravan Club

We arrived at 11.30am in the last week of June found the reception closed and had to wait for some time for somebody to appear from within the campsite. The lady informed us proudly that an English couple had turned up the previous day and promptly left earlier that day having booked onto a different site as they were not happy. After taking out tourist tax money she told us to look round the campsite to see if we wanted to stay (which we did). We found the pitches not to the usual size of those we have stayed at before in France, but eventually found one we could fit on (our caravan being only 7.5 m long). We had to use levelling blocks (which was not an issue) and easily reached an electric point only to find it was not working. Went back to reception to report this, but once again reception was closed and had to search the site to find anybody, both connections on the electric point had tripped, but she only reset one of them, when I queried the other connection that had obviously tripped, she replied "You are ok", lo and behold later that week another van arrived and he had to trace somebody to reset the trip. The pitches were in desperate need of cutting some of the grass and weeds were ankle deep and the hedges overgrown with brambles. There were two shower blocks on site, but only one was open, the locked up with water turned off and looking at the state of it was unlikely to open in the near future. The showers were always hot and clean, but turned off at night and not on again until 8am. Although the temperature was in the high 20's/low 30's while we were there the swimming pool was not open the gate being locked and the pool needing a clean. The one saving grace was the beach and sea, absolutely beautiful with a clean beach and very clear water. The directions to the site are wrong, there are no traffic lights to pass through for instance, we spoke with one couple who had tried to follow these directions and ended up in the town centre. What appeared to have been a shop and a cafe on site was all closed and being used for storage of old items. Of all the English people we spoke with during the two weeks we were there not one had any praise for the site. We never saw the reception open other than when people were booking in and on may occasions we saw people just waiting at the entrance for somebody to appear.. The site is in a state of disrepair and in drastic need of time and money spent on it, which is a shame as it could be a fantastic site. I think this site has been miss represented and the Caravan Club need to rethink about recommending it. We have stayed on several Caravan Club recommended sites in France in the past and have never been disappointed before. We will not be returning.

We stayed here at the beginning of May and right from the first day we loved it. The site is easy to find and access is good, with a security barrier. The owners were lovely and gave us a warm welcome and were so helpful throughout our stay. The shower and toilet blocks are very clean, plenty of hot water with washing up and laundry facilities. Just a five minute walk takes you to a beautiful and safe beach and close by there is a cycle track that takes you into the centre of Concarneau. OK, so the pool wasn’t working but with beach so close, you don’t need it. Pitches are clean and well looked after, take plenty of levelling blocks and a long EHU. The family who own the site are brilliant, very friendly and helpful and keen to help us with our French learning. Would we go again? Most definitely, it’s well worth a visit and as long as you remember that you’re in France (no loo paper or toilet seats) and that the site has no control over the weather or the amount of seaweed on the beach (there really isn’t much) you will have a great time. A very clean and peaceful place to stay, thanks for having us! 😀🏖

Fantastic Welcome, Clean Facilities, Picturesque Beach, Peaceful Stay

We have just returned from a stay at this site and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The site is run by a delightful family who gave us such a warm welcome we were immediately made to feel like old friends. They went out of their way to be helpful and informative and to help us with our learning of the French language and places to visit. The site itself is lovely, access to a beautiful beach is an easy walk and there is an off road cycle path to Concarneau which is easy and enjoyable. The facilities were exceedingly clean, hot water was availiable at all times of the day. The swimming pool was not operational at the time of our stay but this didn’t diminish our enjoyment of the site at all. The pitches are somewhat unlevel so be sure to pack all of your availiable blocks. If, like us, you enjoy peace and quiet, wildlife, the coast and friendly hosts this is the site for you. We will be back next time we are in the area.

We'll be back next year!

We absolutely loved this place. It was everything we could possibly have wished for and more. The family are absolutely delightful and really make the site worth visiting. Apart from the the location is perfect... Right on a cycle path, minutes drive from Concarneau (with which we fell utterly in love), quiet and beautiful. I almost don't want to write a raving review in case it gets too popular! Thanks for a wonderful holiday.
