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!
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!
The site is in an amazing location right on a beach (Very Coarse Sand). We booked a beachside pitch which whilst costing a lot more, was well worth it. You need to be quick off the mark to get one though, lots of regulars that go for the whole season.
The pitches towards the back of the site are not so nice although they did seem to be bigger the advantage of them is they are closer to the playground and L'amiral Club if that's your thing. If you want to stay here go for one of the beachside paddocks, 4 to 6 pitches the front two being the expensive ones.
The toilet / Shower facilities are OK, Mixed Gender, Paper kept outside cubicle, Seats and everything! Showers cost 60c for 10 mins but they were hot whatever time of day we went.
Although waste and water is available on each pitch you need a long waste pipe, I took 7m pipe which was too long my friend took 4m which was way short. You need the 2 pin adapter for electric, although they do seem to have them if you don't have one, We vacated early before the reception opened so they've still got mine!
The Beach appears to be dog friendly, at least nobody said anything to us whilst walking our dogs on it.
If you want a good sandy beach head to La Torche (30 minutes at most), a good restaurant and miles of dog friendly fine sand and good surf.
Benodet itself was a little disappointing, restaurants, a casino, Ice cream Kiosks, and a few shops. Although it didn't feel like it had a heart, which is a shame considering it seems to be a wealthy area. It's about a 20 minute walk in to the centre along a coastal path and you can continue right up to the Marina along the promenade, approx 1 hour to walk.
Quimper is worth a visit as is Concarneau & Pont Aven.
Didn't use the pool much, lifeguards made it a bit dull for teenagers but good for the young ones. Budgie smugglers are essential.
Noise after 11. 00pm is not tolerated, if you are noisy security come and tell you to keep it down (in a friendly way).
The Takeaway is the best I have experienced, a very large choice, all homemade and freshly cooked. If you want a sauce for your steak/Duck ask and they will make one. Order your food and ask for it on a plate and you can take it in to the bar to eat.
The nearest Supermarket is Carrefour, but there is a Leclerc & Super you towards Pont L'abbe and a big LeClerc towards Fousenant.
A good mix of nationalities, French, German, Dutch and English in the main and we met an italian couple as well. There were more English than I expected.
English is widely spoken but making the effort to try a bit of french is appreciated by the staff.
Cannot recommend this site highly enough. This was our second 2 week summer holiday here and it was just as good as last year, if not better!
We asked for a quiet pitch when booking, which was much improved this year as you could be much more specific in what you wanted- whereas last year it was a case of just rolling up and seeing what was available. Our pitch was enormous and surrounded by private gardens on 2 sides and a high thick hedge on the 3rd. We shared our area with one other tent. Our children love the fantastic pool complex and the VERY easy access to a great beach (a mix of sand and rocky bits- brilliant for crabs and shrimps). The take away is great- all sorts of French dishes and very good pizzas. They will give you cutlery and serve it on plates to eat in the bar if you ask. The playground is just right with good equipment- although the see-saws are a bit lethal when manned by 4 year olds! Our older child now wants to be Roger Federer after playing loads of tennis on the courts, which costs 8 euros an hour. Never used the saunas, gym, squash court, handball, basketball etc, but they all are in top notch condition. Rental of kayaks and bikes is on site, or just outside gates- bikes are a bit 'sit-up-and-beg', don't expect any Colnago C50s! Toilets and showers are always being cleaned- they never stop- but occassionally ran out of paper, however the next toilet block is never more than a few hundred metres away.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and will speak English, but if you try to speak French they will happily talk French back to you. The bar was similar to lots of other European places where a single drink costs more than a nice bottle of wine from the campsite shop only 20m away! They frustrating showed a French judo match on the TV instead of Bradley Wiggins winning Gold at the Olympics is about my only complaint (especially as the French bloke lost!)
This year the site was pretty busy, with a fairly even split of French/ German/ Dutch/ English and a lot of Welsh people! A few Swiss, Polish and even a Hungarian car for those interested in the 'Guessing the Nationality' game.
