This site is fantastic and this is primarily due to it's amazing location, literally a stone's throw from 2 beautiful sandy beaches and a beautiful coastal path which takes you, in one direction to Trinite sur mer and the other to Carnac. The views are truly breathtaking with each turn and you will pass some tiny little coves which you may be lucky enough to have to yourself - clear water and white sand! This part of Brittany is gorgeous and there is so much to do. For families we highly recommend the zoo at Branfere. The site itself is quite small with a good mixture of British, French and some German families when we were there. The entertainment is quite quirky, delivered by 3 enthusiastic french university students, it was very low key and mostly seemed to be based around sport, apart from a game of dodgeball we didn't really get involved so can't comment really. The pool is fine, it's not the most amazing you will find but with the beach so close by it hardly seems relevant. The bread from the bakery just outside the entrance is delicious although we found the shop and takeaway very expensive. We used the Super you at Carnac but it was heaving - we later discovered a far better supermarket (Intermarche I think) on the road into Auray - much more choice and far less busy. The only negative I can find about this site is that the shower block at the far end of the site was horrible - very old and damp. Our solution was to ignore it entirely and use the much newer block at the front of the site which is lovely and clean. I would like to think that the other block will be replaced soon as it hardly fits in with the site's 4 star rating. We would definitely like to return to this site and highly recommend it!
Just back from a fab 10 night stay at this site in a eurocamp static. Situated on a spit of land near Trinite sur Mer on the southern Brittany coast.
Had a look at the touring pitches and they did look on the smaller side if you have a beast of a tent. Although you could always park the car at the beach carpark next to the shop. The pitches were grassy and well mown with hedging at each side for privacy.
The site was pretty quite considering it was May half term. The statics seemed full but only about 1/4 of the touring pitches were used.
Toilets and showers were very clean every time we went near them - you do need to take your own toilet roll and soap with you each time. The shop was very basic although you could order bread if you wanted for the next day. I expect that it is better stocked in the height of season.
The pool was heated so that our children were happy to play and slightly covered which meant that we could sit and watch them even when it was raining. The beach just outside the campsite was lovely with very clear water. There were a few dead jellyfish around and you would want beach shoes for the rockpooling.
We had one meal at the site restaurant overlooking the beach. The fixed price 3 course meals were very tasty and good value at E18.50 (E9.50 for kids 2 course).
We visited the nearby villages / towns of Trinite and Carnac. Trinite is very pretty but full of yachting bods with prices to match their tastes in the clothes shops. The harbour wall offers excellent crabbing for children but take your own crab lines as they do not sell them in the town.
Going in the opposite direction (towards Carnac plage) is a small Super you supermarkets with petrol that you can only pay for via card. If you keep following the road until you come to the roundabout with the Casino on it, there is the most amazing boulangerie. If offers woodfire oven cooked pizza as well as a huge variety of breads and pastries. Well worth the 10 minute drive for the quality.
The only thing I have marked it down for is on the value for money side. While we got a last minute bargain, the prices at the height of season are steep for tourers. 2A + 2C would pay Euro 50+ a night for a pitch big enough for a family tent with electric during the summer hols.
We stayed in a Eurocamp tent on this site in August 2003. This is a lovely site. The pitches aren't huge but seperated by hedges. The site is straight across from a lovely beach which has toilets and a lifeguard. It shares it's tennis courts and other sports facilities with La Plage just down the road.
The showers/loos were spotless and there were laundry facilities also. There was bike hire and a nice play area. The local sight seeing train picked up from this site to see the local 'stones'. The security were very keen on keeping the noise to a minimum past 11, he didn't manage to prevent one of our bikes being stolen though, which reception said could be a problem (our fault, had forgotten the lock). Nor did he stop a group of French teenagers getting drunk one night and throwing up outside our pitch! They were turfed off the next day.
We have booked to go this year direct with the site with 2 other families and the lady who does the bookings has been so helpful! Even telephoned my friend at home to confirm we could have pitches together, despite 2 families arriving a few days after the 1st. We even have confirmations with the pitch numbers on. Roll on August! La Trinite is lovely to visit in an evening and eating out was great, good choices. It is not a cheap area to visit but it is lovely.
