Top Attractions For Brittany Camping Holidays

There is plenty to see and visit in Brittany. Camping here is a great way to see the region, with the interesting coves on the northern coast, sandy beaches to the south and plenty of Brittany campsites providing accommodation with good access to both coastlines.

When looking for activities on your Brittany camping holiday, the city of St Malo in the north east is a good place to start. It is within easy reach of the mobile homes at the Brittany resort of St Cast nearby. In the old town you can explore the guard towers, city walls and the maze of narrow streets. The castle, set into the cliffs, has survived impressively through the centuries; a tour of its ramparts should capture the imagination.

St Malo is also the home of the Grand Aquarium, where you can see turtles and sharks swimming together. View the many tanks of tropical fish, as well as coral glowing jellyfish and eels.

Brittany’s History

For those who like castles you can visit the medieval strongholds at Fougeres and Rochefort en Terre. Also in the north of Brittany is the abbey at Le Mont-Saint Michel where the legendary King Arthur came and slew a dragon five centuries ago.

A visit to the Parc de Préhistoire de Bretagne is also well worth a day trip. Children will love the array of giant dinosaurs scattered through the woods. After seeing how man first made do with caves and open fires, you’ll be glad to return to the comfort and convenience of the mobile homes that Brittany campsites can provide.

Under the Stars

Part of the charm of camping is sleeping ‘out under the stars’. To see even more of the night sky, there’s a Planetarium in Brittany that is sure to entertain. It will interest both adults and children with its array of twinkling lights and exploration of the galaxy in a three dimensional display. It’s located in the town of Pleumeur-Bodou which lies a little way inland from the Brittany camping sites situated at Perros and Carantec.


In terms of water-borne activities, you might want to try canoeing along the river at Arzano, or fishing on the lake at Baden, which are available at the Brittany campsites of Camping Ty-Nadan and Camping Mané Guernehué, respectively.

The beautiful beaches are another good reason to holiday in Brittany. On the southern coast you’ll find miles and miles of pretty beaches where the children can spend the day splashing about and building sand castles. The wide beach at Fouesnant is located right on the doorstep of Camping de l’Atlantique, and the beach at Bénodet is a short walk from the mobile homes in Brittany’s Camping la Pointe St Gilles.

If your family are looking for fabulous swimming pools, a Brittany camping holiday at Camping le Ranolien, Perros, is one of the many offering a pool complex that resembles a tropical lagoon. Other examples in Brittany’s camping sites include Camping de l’Atlantique at Fouesnant, and Camping Village les Mouettes in Carantec.

Wherever you choose to stay in Brittany, camping is a good value option that will allow you to explore this picturesque and historic region of France.
