Reviewer: Prador 1 review from this member

Having just returned from two weeks in Du Letty with the family I felt compelled to write my first review.

Firstly, I feel this camping site is simply Magnifique!

I realise this trip was my first time in France but Du Letty exceeded my expectations in almost every way.


We had a standard size pitch (approx. 80 sqm) on a very gentle slope for our Bear Lake 6, front extension and car. It was ample to contain this large tent with enough space out front for dining in the open. There was also good space for car access in between the parallel rows of campers. I was not worried about driving over guy lines or solar lights. There are larger pitches but I was way too late as they get booked up for next season even before the current one finishes`.

A fresh water supply and waste water point is available and placed in a gap in the hedgerow. Itís shared between your immediate neighbour and two pitches in the adjacent plot over the hedgerow.

A 10 amp three pin electrical supply is also available at each pitch. We didnít need a two pin adapter and the polarity was correct.

Washing/cleaning facilities

A welcome change for returning campers will be the fact that you no longer have to pay for the hot showers. All the facilities are cleaned regularly by site staff and are in a reasonable state of repair. A bit of updating wouldnít go amiss but they are always functional considering how many people use them per year. Remember the toilets are unisex and take toilet paper off the roll before you go in! Itís worth taking a small roll with you in case the dispensers on the wall are empty. Take a small bottle of hand wash too as some toilets have no soap or even a sink to wash your hands. Parts of the shower block are locked at 11pm but the toilets remain open 24/7.

Utilities and shops

Several laundrettes are located around the site. The cost of washing and drying a 10kg load is approx Ä7. No money is placed in the washer or dryer itself. There is a machine on the wall where you select your chosen machine by number, pay the required amount and validate. For the dryers just repeat the process to reach your desired drying time. Quite a few people thought you had to return every ten minutes to feed the machine more money.

The company LCBS now has a presence on the site in the form of a little chalet just down from reception. Here you can hire appliances such as refrigerators and microwaves. We hired the fridge for two weeks at a cost of Ä75 with a refundable deposit of Ä50. It was delivered and collected to and from our pitch at a pre-agreed day and time. It was incredibly useful to have and for just over Ä5 per day I thought it was a bargain.

The local on-site shop is as you would expect a bit expensive and carries a limited range of goods. Fresh bread and pastries are available every morning and fruit/veg gets replaced every day.

Information provision

The staff in reception and the tourist information centre were always welcoming and spoke several languages. They were knowledgeable regarding the local area and any events happening during our stay. They pointed out a few places we should visit which turned out to be brilliant. Pop in there on your first day and grab a couple maps of the FinistŤre region and explore.

On-site entertainment and food

The main bar is large and well presented with a selection of entertainment over the week. It ranges from cringe worthy karaoke to magic shows and mini discos. The entertainment is more geared toward children which is great as their attention is diverted for an hour or two giving you a chance to relax for a bit. Prices are ok, plenty of staff and the cocktails are nice. The large outside terrace is lovely in the evenings and the outside pool has underwater lighting to add to the ambience.

The food takeaway produces nice food and is useful when you canít be bothered to cook. It primarily makes pizza but other items such as frites and quiches can be bought. All food bought can be eaten in the main bar or terrace without any problems. It does shut earlier than you think (2130 if I remember correctly) so you will be disappointed if you leave the bar when closing expecting takeaway to be open.

Kids entertainment

There is a kids club that is heavily subscribed so if you want to use this facility get in there early. They run activities that are weather dependent and our children found them really entertaining when the adults wanted a bit of downtime 

There is a large swing/slide park for the kids to use during the day but we found it got overrun by the larger children/teenagers the later it got. Some smaller children may find it intimidating so supervision may be needed here.

Tennis courts and outside table tennis bats are also available for hire at a small cost if that floats your boat. There is a small games room with a few arcade machines, air hockey and an old pool table. Itís a bit tired but we didnít use this facility.

Swimming pools and other facilities

The main outdoor pool is large, clean and interesting. There is a shallow ankle deep area for the very young children with slides, water cannons and water buckets. A larger river slide runs from the same place a four lane short slide which has constant lifeguard supervision at the exit point. The main open area has a few loops, bridges and waterfalls and is well bordered with trees and decoration. Sun loungers are available but as ever get taken up very early when the weather is good. Get in there quick if you want to catch the rays in comfort. The lifeguards are patrolling constantly and can be a touch over zealous potentially spoiling the fun of older kids. Its all in the name of safety I suppose so canít complain. You cannot take any food or drink poolside or when on the loungers as they will ask you to leave the water park if you want to consume the item. To all the other blokes there, usual French rules apply; pack your banana hammock as shorts are prohibited in the water.

Immediately adjacent to the outside pool is a decent size indoor pool. The water temperature is a few degrees warmer so feels like a warm bath after being in the outside pool for a bit. Going the other way can come as a shock though!

This contains another shallow area for the toddlers and water jets etcÖIt is also nicely presented and a pleasure to use.

There are seats available and this building is where you find the exit for the post swim showers and changing area. This is very small and could do with expanding as every parent showers their child here to save doing it again back at the main shower blocks.

All in all I was very impressed with the swimming facilities on offer and used them almost every day.

While a sauna, massage and other relaxation facilities were available, with young children we had no opportunity to use them so I cannot offer any comment on these parts of the site.

External to site

If you hire a fridge get yourself to the local supermarket. Obviously you will have a much wider range and the prices are better. It is on the outskirts of Benodet (Carrefour) and easy to get to.

The beach at Du Letty is made up of quite coarse sand but at slack tide offers brilliant rock pooling and crabbing for the kids. The sand is better on the other side of the water inlet but be aware the current is very fast and the water level rises faster than you think. If you go to the spit of sand over the water ensure you have a way back before the tide comes in!

Benodet itself is small but has a fantastic beach, creperies and ice-cream stands. There are a few nice restaurants on the boardwalk that are worth a visit for good food and a pretty view. Take a walk further down to reach the marina/port area for more seafood restaurants, land train departure point and the excursions up the river Odet.

Other places worth a visit are Concarneau, a beautiful walled fortification containing little shops, restaurants, live entertainment and a small museum. Quimper which is the regional capital. Bigger and better for the shopping side of things. Locronan is a little village and is gorgeous, well worth the time.

If you want to blow out the cobwebs and donít mind travelling get to Pointe Du Raz. Itís the northern peninsula for the Bay of Biscay and mixes stunning scenery with lively weather conditions. There are amazing beaches all the way along the coast that we just stopped off at and ran in the surf for a bit. Completely off the cuff and great fun.


I hope this review doesnít come over too much as an analysis of Du Letty. I have tried to combine what we experienced with practical information for potential visitors. I can safely say that we will be returning to Du Letty as we have many more places we would like to explore in the region. There was plenty to do whatever the Brittany weather threw at us and a great time was had by all.

Our second camping trip to France and we decided on the strength of other reviews and recommendations to give Le Letty a go. After an easy early morning drive from Roscoff we arrived at the on site earlier 3 hours than the 1pm check in time but we were still able to check in which was a very welcome surprise. We were lead to our pitch which was in Les Genets. It was a 110m squared comfort pitch which was the perfect size for us. Lovely and flat and well drained. The only thing we would have said on first look was that the hedges needed to grow a little more for those who prefer privacy around their pitch, but we were more than happy with our little 'village'. Our pitch was right at the back of campsite, next to the coastal road which on some occasions became noisy overnight with French teenagers socialising, but was not much of an issue.

The facilities closest to our pitch were also not fantastic, continuous smell of drains etc and could really do with an update, the better facilities could be found the closer to reception you went. You can tell were they have spent the money. We did see the army of youngsters cleaning, however some of them could do with some tips on how to clean! That being said, we never had to wait for a shower etc once in the whole stay and it hasn't put me off re-visiting. Hot water was always available for washing dishes and hands etc (take your own soap and toilet roll!)

We visited the pool facilities twice during our stay and both the children throughly enjoyed the slides etc.

The location on the beach was fantastic. We spent a lot of time in the rock pools, and the kids absolutely adored it. The coastal path walk to Benodet was very pleasant and our 3 year old managed it easily (with the promise of ice-cream at the end of course!).

We also visited Concarnou, Beg Meil and Cap Coz and had a fantastic time (somewhat helped by the lovely weather we were blessed with!)

The bar area and takeaway were always very busy, but very good. The kids enjoyed the disco and we all enjoyed our pizzas and frites from the takeaway on the last night.

All in all, although some of the toilet facilities were not up to the standard we have previously been used to we would stay at Le Letty again in a heartbeat.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Le Letty with our folding camper, plus the in laws in their caravan. This was our first time camping in France and it was a good experience. We had previously walked through the campsite whilst staying at Keycamp near by and thought it looked great.

Driving from Roscoff to Le Letty was easy - about 1hr 45 mins on road surfaces much better than we get at home!

The campsite is segregated into small areas fitting from 1 to 10 pitches, which I thought were well sized. It seems that you can put whatever you like on the pitch - no extra cost for gazebos etc. There was a mix of tents, campers, caravans etc.

The first week was busy, the second much quieter. During the busy week, there was some bustle esp with kids on scooters, bikes etc going up and down the roadways; it wasn't a problem - just watch out for them! A few nights were noisy til 11, but it didn't stop the kids from sleeping.

Facilities were good - LOADS of washing up basins, toilets (unisex - confused me at first, plus toilet paper on the outside of the toilet which I forgot a few times!), separate cubicled sinks and less showers, but I never had to queue for one.

Swimming pool was great - our kids loved it in rain or sunshine. It was in good condition - nice and clean.

The beach is amazing - it changes all the time. Never too crowded with a nice feel to it - no poser types, just lots of people kayaking. Great to be able to walk to the beach in 2 mins.

We didn't sample the entertainment, though we did try the frites and pizza on site. We also didn't make it to the play area as we were having too much fun elsewhere!

Overall - great place to stay - would come again.

Wow what an amaizing site, this was my first french caravan trip since owning our van and it couldn't have been better, the pool was simply amaizing, its right on the beach with good acsess for small boats, canoes & kayaks, the shop stocks a good range of supplies inc breads freshly baked every morning also a take way with lots of choice not just pizza & burgers but other foods like salads & pasta dishes. There is also a bar open from lunchtime onwards.

The local town of Benodet has lots of shops, Bars & Resturants and only 5 mins away on our cycles all downhill on the way there it took a couple of mins longer on the return up the hill though

Fantastic site - great beach access, cosy hedged pitches with shade (about 8 tents / caravans per section), good takeaway, fab outdoor pool that wasn't too loud or wild. Lovely indoor pool which the little ones preferred, with a mini lazy river, spray jets, jacuzzi etc. Limited evening entertainment which was merciful as that doesn't float my boat and it was only loud one night and ended about 11. 30 (and even then it was 2 fiddlers who sounded good!). The site somehow managed to be huge, but very laid back. There are some great pitches with direct beach access, however, I was glad we didn't get one of these as teenagers seemed to pile down to the beach after the bar and make campfires etc (I'm sure I would have loved this if I was 19!). Could imagine that it might be a bit noisier if we'd been closer to the beach. If you fancy a Pre- erected Safari tent, they looked great - but take note. They are directly next to the sanitary block, so lots of door banging. Staff were very helpful when we had a problem with our EHU and car battery - even jump starting it for us. The area is pretty - could recommend Quimper (shops shut Sunday) for a day out, Concarneau or Pont Aven (think that's what it was called!). If you fancy another beach, would also recommend Beg Meil, Benodet is good on Market Day, but a bit dull otherwise. I seem to have said a few negatives. Don't get me wrong, we LOVED this site! I don't want to go back to the same place twice, but struggling now to find somewhere to beat it.

We returned home to the UK from 11 nights at Du Letty last night and really wish we were still there. This was our first trip to the continent and cannot wait to go back.

The site itself is lovely, all facilities are spotless. The showers are 60c for warm water and free for cold water which was ideal as the weather was scorching.

Our pitch was a good size, they do seem to vary a little though. We had water and waste on our pitch but you are likely to need a long hose.

Access to the site is good and is sign posted well.

The outdoor pool is great, kids loved the water slides, if you want a sunbed you need to be up early though. The indoor pool is also excellent, water is very warm.

Although our pitch wasn't right next to the beach the we only had to walk two minutes to reach it.

On the beach it is great for crabbing and fishing although you do need to be a bit careful when the tide is changing as the cuurent is strong. The sand is course but if you cross the to the other side of the river inlet the sand is better. If you own any kind of boat, dinghy or Kayak it is perfect.

We did visit the Bar and Admiral Club a couple of times, these are both very nice and clean. They have live music and karaoke evenings a couple of times a week. Prices are probably slightly more expensive than UK.

The on site shop is OK for basics, but for quite a large shop we struggled to put a meal together. The fresh bread and croissants etc are excellent but beware it is a serious business. Do not pick up bread before the member of staff has finished putting them all out or you will be in trouble!

We purchased most things from the Carrefour supermarket which is about 5 minutes drive away, it has everything you need but is possibly a little expensive.

The on site takeaway looked good with plenty of choice but we only used it to get the kids a portion of chips a couple of times.

The kids playground is good and the tennis courts look in excellent condition.

We didn't use the Sauna, Library etc but I am sure they will be as clean and tidy as the rest of the site.

The town of Benodet is nice, its about a 20 to 30 minute walk away from the site and there is a resort type train that runs around the town.

There is a market on Mondays that is worth a look but is quite busy and parking is not the easiest.

We took a 3 hour cruise up the River Odet towards Quimper which cost approx 85 Euros for 2 adults and 2 children, some nice views from the boat but not really worth the money in our opinion.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday at Camping Du Letty and will be returning in the future!
