Pitch Only Camping
If you’re looking for a pitch only campsite in Brittany then Camping le Châtelet could be the one for you.
Set amongst heathland this small yet beautiful campsite has breathtaking sea views giving you the best that Brittany has to offer. Pitches are varied with some looking out across the bay whilst others look towards an ancient hilltop fort.
Although fairly small, le Châtelet still manages to fit in some great facilities with two pools, a lake suitable for fishing, a bar, takeaway, shop and evening entertainment in high season.
One of the best things about le Châtelet is it’s close proximity to two wonderful beaches, Fresnaye and Pissotte, although care must be taken with the steep path to Fresnaye.
Le Chatelet can be booked as pitch only or alternatively through Canvas holidays with full accommodation provided.le Châtelet
Great for Families
Ty Nadan is a great place for families of all ages who are looking for something different.
Set beside the river Elle, in a wooded parkland this Castels Group campsite offers you the ability to relax and enjoy the countryside or immerse yourself in one of the many activities on offer for a fun, action packed family holiday. The woods provide an array of walks, horse riding and cycling opportunities while the river allows you to relax on the sandy banks or take part in canoeing, fishing or kayaking.
Some may say that a family holiday campsite must have children’s clubs, however in our opinion all of the natural surroundings, combined with the superb four pool water complex, water slide, chutes, sports facilities, activities, discos, restaurant, takeaway and bar, makes Ty Nadan one of the best campsites in Brittany for families.Ty Nadan
