We were truly amazed at how well kept and polite the site and staff were. Absolutely fantastic holiday beautiful area of France enough to do on sight for kids and super sized pitches. Would definitely recommend to anyone. A very short drive to Saint cast which has seven beaches which also are pebble and she'll free. Also you stay here definitely try a town called Erquy. Great value too

Weíve just come back from our very first holiday in France, a week at Ch‚teau de Galinťe, St Cast and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in a Eurocamp Classic Tent so wonít talk about the accommodation just the site (although the tents were brilliant!). The site is classed as a small site (by Eurocamp) but compared to many sites Iíve stayed at in the UK itís not small, having said that itís not large either. The facilities really are very good, more akin to a holiday complex than a campsite. The swimming complex is very good, 3 clean safe outdoor pools (1 smaller for kids & 2 deeper pools) and 2 water slides which feed into their own dedicated pool separate from the swimmers. We were told that they operate an over 8ís only policy on the slide but there were kids of all ages on the slides which pleased my 5 year old as he got to go on them both. Mostly there were enough sun loungers but on very hot days it did get more crowded, we managed to find some loungers outside the indoor pool instead (while my husband took the little one swimming) and there is a large grassed area if you want to lay your towel although this wouldnít be so good if you have smaller children you need to watch by the pool. Both indoor pools are also very good and despite the good weather were just as popular as the outdoor pools, although the childrenís indoor pool is very small. There is a shop, takeaway and bar/restaurant on site. The shop serves everything you would expect of a small site shop, great fresh bread & pastries every morning and again, even though it was busy in the morning there still seemed to be enough, we never struggled to get fresh bread. We never used the takeaway so cannot comment although it certainly seemed very popular. The takeaway and shop close between 2pm and 5. 30pm everyday even in the height of the season which seemed like a missed opportunity to me as the bar is also closed until 5. 30 so nowhere to get drinks or ice creams from in the heat of the afternoon, but one of the things we loved about the whole area was how uncommercialised it was, I guess badgering people for their money is not a priority in Brittany (what a refreshing change!). The toilets were ok. They are not the best nor the worst I have ever used, I was a bit concerned at first as there is only one set of bathrooms on the site with a family block and I worried there would be big queues for showers but I always managed to get one without trouble. One of the showers in the ladies had a blocked drain so my shoes were flooded and another only had freezing cold water, so not great. However we mostly used the family block which is brilliant. Big rooms with a large shower that can been turned on and off (no timer buttons here) and has adjustable temperature Ė perfect for kids, they also have a sink and a baby bath with shower head. Showers times were the easiest on a campsite Iíve ever had with my son! The toilets in the ladies block were not always very clean which is a criticism of the users not the site, they were cleaned at least once a day. The play facilities consist of a climbing frame ship outside the toilet blocks, swings and slides in one of the mobile home areas at the far end of the site and 2 bouncy castles next to the bar (one was deflated at 6pm every night). Although there was also a large grassed area next to the bar it would have been nice to have something else for the kids to play on in that area because the bouncy castle became very busy at times (especially being summer holidays) which wasnít so great for smaller or less confident kids and by the end of the week my son was bored with the bouncy castle. There is also a zip wire in this area, but again used by the bigger kids, not ideal for younger guests. Apart from these few negatives the site was very good. Clean and well looked after, with (mostly) well behaved kids and really quietened down after 10pm. The bar was very nice, I think it has recently been done because it looked very new and smart. The food here was excellent, I highly recommend the 4 cheese pizza Ė yum  Other site facilities which we didnít use include tennis court, ping pong tables, mini golf and a fishing lake. The area itself is beautiful. The campsite is near but not next to St Cast. It is a good 30 mins+ walk into town along some very busy, fast roads so I wouldnít walk it myself but can be reach by car in 10 mins. The beach at Pen Guen is lovely and has a beach bar and restaurant (although we didnít use it so donít know if itís any good) a few people we talked talk recommended it though and the Grande Plage at St Cast itself is a stunning, large, shallow beach absolutely perfect for kids. They even have a couple of kids clubs on the beach that you can pay to use by the hour or per half day. Although they were predominantly French children my son joined in one afternoon, one of the girls who worked their spoke perfect English and helped him out a lot, she even told us we could go shopping if we wanted, just leave them our number and sheíd call us if he needed us (which we didnít do, heís too young, we stayed 20m away where we could watch him while he played), but thought what a nice option for older children. There is also a marina in St Cast, which is not the best looking Marina Iíve been to but had amazing restaurants, highly recommend the Oysters and St Jacques (huge Scallops to us Brits) at Lípetit Mousse Ė gorgeous. In the centre of St Cast is a square surrounded on 2 sides by restaurants and cafes while in the centre of the square is a park, again just perfect to let our little one play safely while dad and I enjoyed the fine coffee, pastries (and maybe a glass or two of the wonderful local Cidre). The campsite and the area just all seems geared towards fun family holidays. If you are a young couple you might find the pace all a little bit slow and kid orientated but to anyone with a young family or older relatives itís wonderful. Weíd stay again in a shot (after weíve tried out all the other wonderful places France has to offer).

We had planned to use this site on our way back from Western Brittany, as the reviews all sounded positive. When we arrived the booking office had a large queue so we took the opportunity to look around. A lovely clean site and it looked to be well maintained, with some good pools which would be great for children, and overall facilities, shops, bar etc. It was very busy with a lot of traffic on site. However it was a long way from any beach, the approach roads were also very narrow and busy and as we like to cycle it did seem a bit far from anywhere to visit. So we decided to move on and found a site right near the town of St Cast le Guildo with its fab beaches.

Nice site if you are ok with commercial sites. Some pitches a long way from toilets. Best pitches are those without electric, seem quieter.

Toilets always clean. Pool area always clean. Staff helpful. Caught a couple of fish at the small lake.

It was very busy, but it was peak season. We went for the pools for the children. We wont do this again, we will go to our normal site and have the odd trip to the local pool! We left a day early as commercial sites are not our thing.

No complaints at all really, apart from units with air conditioning are allowed, we had one close to us - what can I say!

Was good that the bar and entertainment was in its own area so we never heard a thing even when the disco was in full swing.

Local area very nice.

This is a very nice campsite indeed. It is easily accessible from the various channel ports (around 7 hours from Calais if towing) with good roads all the way. The site has ample pitches, decent facilities and is safe and secure. There are beaches close by as well as supermarkets and St Malo is about half an hour away. The clientele seemed to be mainly British and French.

When we arrived the reception was very friendly with good English spoken in the office. We were then shown to our pitch. The pitch itself was of a very good size (120m) and we were able to have our folding camper, awning, annexes on both sides and an Outwell tarp erected and this still left good room for the kids to play etc. Each pitch had EHU as well as a fresh water tap and a grey water disposal point. The fresh water taps are threaded to take the type of connection that fits a garden hose pipe so one of these on a foot of hose might be helpful for filling up your Aquarolls.

The kids loved the site as it goes. Thereís a barrier entrance with PIN code to get in and out and it felt a safe and secure place for them to play and explore on their bikes. Most people adhered to the 10kmh speed limit but as with all sites, thereís always the odd Lewis Hamilton wannabee! The pools, both outdoor and indoor are fantastic though the outdoor ones could be rather chilly. There are also a few playgrounds dotted around as well as a bouncy castle, small aerial runway and table tennis etc near the restaurant.

The restaurant served very good food and it was reasonably priced and with the kids activities in close proximity, this made eating out anywhere else a bit pointless really. In contrast, the prices at the take away service seemed to be similar to those for sitting down and eating. There is also a shop that sells good bread and croissants in the morning as well as milk and other provisions. For the bigger shop, there is a Super you up the road in Mantignon and an Inter Marche at St Cast, both just several minutes away. Both are well stocked though the Inter Marche seemed better for any camping bibs and bobs you might need. The site itself does not sell gas (it has gas it only for its own static units) and I failed to spot anywhere selling Camping Gaz so you might want to make sure youíve got plenty before you go or be prepared to hunt some down. Iím sure reception could help you locate it.

The toilets and showers are in a nice, warm and modern block. There is also a family section that has a small bath. It was big enough for a six year old and a four year old to get in together. The showers and toilets were mostly clean but sometimes there were dirty floors from people wearing their shoes in and out. BEWARE Ė I slipped on the floor in the shower and fell Ė the floors are very slippery indeed. The water was a bit hit and miss too as the shower could be hot and then run cold even in the same 10 second time burst that the showers are on. Iím all for timed, controlled water useage but 10 seconds isnít long enough (though it was too long on the cold cycles).

Overall then, a very good site and if you are considering going to this part of the world, itís certainly a site to consider.

Just back from 2 weeks at Chateau de Galinee. Generally impressed & had a good stay.


- In a good way, the site felt smaller than it actually is.

- The site was well maintained and clean. The staff were clearly making an effort to keep it tidy.

- Many of the pitches are arranged around 'greens' which were great for kids to play on & up.

- The water slides & pools were a big hit with our kids (aged 7 & 5). They weren't the warmest, but were well maintained.

- Family shower block was useful.

- The site was generally pretty calm & quiet come 11pm and also in the mornings.

- Lovely area of Brittany. Loads of quiet sandy beaches.


- The toilets blocks had just been refurbished but needed a bit more work / servicing (eg showers weren't always that hot, hand dryer wasn't working).

- Talking to one couple they said that they found it a bit sterile, but that wasn't our perception.

We'd definitely go back.
