Camping Holidays in Brittany
Brittany is France’s north westernmost tip that reaches bravely outwards to the Atlantic Ocean. It is a delightful area to discover, and being well served with Channel ferry ports brings it even closer to Ireland. And there are many other reasons to choose Siblu holiday park, Domaine de Kerlann, as a base. Think Celtic culture, crêpes-cider-and-seafood, a mild climate and a stunning coastline. It’s time to pack those suitcases: let’s head for southern Brittany!
Beaches & The Great Outdoors
The Domaine de Kerlann campsite in Brittany is close to the many stunning Blue Flag beaches of southern Brittany. Bathers, sandcastle builders and water sport enthusiasts will be spoiled for choice. Closest is Tahiti Beach (sheltered; spectacular views). And Raguénès (enduringly popular) Rospico (streams for damming and a sandy cove), Port Manec’h (beach huts; windsurfing) and Trevignon (coastline in all directions) are also all worth searching out. Golfers, walkers and cyclists are all equally well catered for throughout the region.
Things To Do & Special Events
Brittany offers a whole heap of activities and events for all the family to enjoy. Find out all there is to know about the world under the sea at leisure park-come-aquarium, Océanopolis (near Brest). Try Pont-Scorff’s beautiful zoo. Quirky Labyrinthe de Pont-Aven (with petting zoo) will keep your little ones amused for hours. Lorient’s Interceltic Festival is a great way to embrace Celtic traditions from around the globe, while the Festival de Cornouaille (Quimper) is a dynamic array of concerts, parades and demonstrations of all things Breton. There’s also Bonobo Parc nearby – a zip wire adventure park. And right next to the Domaine de Kerlann campsite, explore artists’ fishing village Pont-Aven – famous for its association with Paul Gaugin. The town is particularly lively during the Fête des Fleurs d’Ajoncs (gorse flower festival on August 1st), with Breton food, music, dancing and locals in traditional costume.
Local Discoveries & Hidden Gems
Take a boat trip and weave your way through the 42 tiny islands that make up the Gulf of Morbihan, or visit paradise islands, Les Iles de Glénan, just off the south coast of Finistère. Magical. Carnac is France’s remarkable answer to Stonehenge – with the longest alignment of standing stones (menhirs) – anywhere! At the same time, visit Carnac-Plage. With five different beaches to choose from – whether you prefer bustling, sheltered or deserted – you will find your spot. When it’s time for a pit-stop, take your pick from sweet crêpes, savoury galettes and seafood (mussels, crab, langoustines or prawns), all washed down with local cider or apple juice.
Places To Go
Wait, we’re not finished yet! Southern Brittany has many “must-see” towns and villages. Concarneau – an important fishing port with all that implies in terms of wining and dining locally, but also renowned for its ‘ville close’ (walled town), nearby sandy beaches and summer maritime festival. Quimper – the cultural heart of Brittany thanks to the Festival de Cournaille, also famous for its beautiful pottery. Vannes – medieval town with butterfly garden, aquarium, toy museum, shopping, markets, and more!
