Why stay here ...

Located in southern Brittany, between Concarneau and Lorient, this site is run by the Guyader family and is bustling in high season. A range of facilities means families are well catered for and there is a range of entertainment organised in the daytime and evenings. There is also a footpath to the beach where guests can fish, sail or surf.

The friendly, efficient staff speak very good English, and those at reception will help you plan your excursions or arrange bike rental so you can enjoy a day’s cycling.

The site has direct access to over 50km of coastal and country footpaths, and the town of Névez with its shuttered stone houses is a 3.5km walk. Lorient has an interesting history, having been a submarine base in the Second World War, and is now a dynamic fishing centre. 

For inspiration follow the steps of impressionist painters such us Paul Gauguin by visiting the beautiful Pont Aven.

Great location facilities looking tired

Stayed 4 nights Aug 2017. Great location, staff very efficient, pool good for families but the facilities are now looking very tired particularly toilet block which have not changed since last visit approx 10 years ago. There is only one non disabled toilet in the shower block the rest being on the other side outside of the block which is why there was a sign stating "please do not use these showers as a toilet!' Ate a meal in the restaurant which which was very poor quality & value compared to other campsites. Manoeuvring anything but the smallest unit is difficult with tight corners & turns with shrubs and bushes on corners which scratch your unit. It's a lovely place but just needs to make essential improvements

Very good but....

Stayed for 10 nights at the start of August 2017. The facilities are cleaned daily and maintained to a very good standard. The site is very close (5 mins walk on private path) to the beach which is a fantastic sandy long beach with plenty of room for everyone. Further around the bay in both directions are further smaller beaches all accessable by the coast path. The site has a good swimming pool area which gets very busy and very noisy. There is a small shop with basic provisions, a small bar, a takeaway serving pizza, frittes, cooked chickens and lasagne and around the bar/pool area was a range of kids play equipment. The vast majority of the staff speak good English and everyone we spoke to was very helpful and polite. There was something arranged most evenings while we were there but it all appears to be held outdoors by the bar. These events often go on till midnight and were very loud and could be heard right across the site. The Karaoke events being by far the worse with nowhere to escape from the din! There are no shops or restaurants within wasy walking distance, we walked to both the northern and southern next villages along the coast paths to eat out. The northern route is roughly a six mile round trip on fairly good paths but we found no shops, whereas the southern route is more like eight miles and the coastal path is hard going and not suitable for young or anyone struggling with mobility but there was a small supermarket. A supermarket and fuel was also available from Nevez, a town a couple of miles away in-land. As already mentioned, there are some narrow access roadways on the site but the pitches are of a good size and well shaded although there were a large number of wasps around the weaping willows which the site were trying to manage by hanging wasp traps in the trees. As with most of France, dont expect the dog mess to be picked up so be careful where you put your feet when you walk around the site! Nice enough place but as we have a motorhome (so no car on holiday), the lack of shops and restaurants within the local area and the noise late into the evenings means we wouldn't return.

Well worth a visit

We only stayed here for one night as we were getting the Roscoff ferry back to Plymouth the next day. On the way to the site we passed some very pretty towns i.e Pont Aven and Nevez which we would definitely like to visit in the future. We arrived to a friendly welcome by the staff and found a pitch of our choosing. After setting up, we walked to the beach, the sea was too rough for swimming on that particular day but there is a coastal path so we walked part of that instead. The on site swimming pools were very nicely kept and were not at all busy (2nd week in September). We definitely would like to come here again and book enough night so that we have time to explore the pretty places that are close by and are very definitely well worth a visit.

Lovely site but BEWARE large outfits

Was unexpectedly in this area for 1 extra night (kids travelled much better than expected!). Have a long van (over 8m) and so used CC to find site as didn't want to run into problems with pitch size / getting around site. However - nightmare checking in (narrow road, not very clearly marked where to go, so you end up blocking entrance of campsite). They continually tried to get us to park round a tight roundabout to free up said road, and wouldn't listen when we said we were too long. Forced us to do so and my poor husband had to do a 20 point jiggery pokery with everyone from Reception, the shop and the café watching to get us out! My advice - if you're long and think you cant get round, stick to your guns! Lovely pool and location, loads to do in the area, nice pitch once on it! Tricky leaving too as many corners have trees and well established bushes - damaged side of the van on way out. IN SHORT - lovely site for smaller outfits and those who don't get stressed and bothered when towing in a tight space!
