Judging by the number of British people here, this site must surely be featured in a UK camping guide, however, after our 2 night stay here we remain somewhat unimpressed and mildly irritated with some of the facilities. The reception staff are very good and speak excellent English, and on arrival we were given a map and asked to choose a pitch(s) which they would then verify as available – the 2 sanitary blocks were highlighted for us on the map. We chose a pitch near the 2nd sanitary block, which was a little quieter and where we could see an available EHU point (many looked full or were too far away from the pitch!). We had to be connected to the electric by a member of staff as the EHU boxes are locked, and disconnected when we left. Once pitched up, we went to find the loo, only to find that the 2nd toilet block had only the men’s loos and showers open, the women’s were locked. I don’t know how often this block is cleaned, but it was generally a bit dark, old fashioned and grubby. One of the toilets had a smeary poop at the back of the seat, which was still there when we left after staying 2 nights so probably not cleaned that often! If they couldn’t be bothered to properly open the 2nd sanitation block they should have mentioned this when we chose our pitch, as we would have hunted for something nearer the main block had we known. This I find quite unacceptable on a 4 star site, having stayed in some spotless 2 star places previously on our holiday. The main sanitation block was fine and this was where we showered – like a different camp site! The stars obviously relate to the small heated pool, site location, and provision of loo roll.

The site itself, is adjacent to a lovely beach, with walks around the point with many more beaches/rock pools at low tide and views – this is quite a stunning location with walks and paths, and it is easy enough to cycle to the centre of La Trinité-sur Mer where there are restaurants, shops, and a harbour. There is also a good site shop and restaurant/bar across the road, with a terrace leading to the beach.

Would we come here again? Probably not, as we found a nicer site at Men-Du, but if you want a pool and the comfort of lots of English translations, then not a bad option.

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!

Nearly booked at the Camping De la Plage next door and then read the small number of reviews about this site (which I understand are co-owned) and booked here instead.

For location you can't beat it. Virtually on the beach (and a choice of East side or West side depending on the wind direction) and the shelter provided by Quiberon means the sea always seemed calm and had very gentle gradients - safe for children.

Campsite was typical french, hedgelined and dotted with trees. Every pitch seemed to have EHU and taps/drains.

The pool was a little chilly but OK, and the kids loved the waterslide. However we were there before school holidays, and the campsite was quite empty - but even so the pool seemed busy. I am not sure what it would be like during school holidays.

Toilets/shower blocks were clean and well maintained. Although there were only two of them - at the extreme ends of the site, so if you were in the middle, you could have a bit of a walk. And again, I am not sure how they would cope in peak season. I guess for cleaning reasons off-peak, they kept all but 4 of the 'sink' cubicles locked, but it was starting to get busier when we were there and I was having to queue for a sink.

The shop was very handy, sold almost everything you needed and fresh bread/pastries every morning. Campsite staff were very friendly and helpful (even lent us a euro to 16amp adapter for the EHU for free).

Loads to do in the area, Carnac, Quiberon, forest walks, La Trinite Sur Mer, boat trips around the Gulf etc

Would I go back - yes, but I would prefer to hear someones experiences during school holidays before choosing to go in peak season, as for the number of pitches, I was not sure the facilities would cope at full capacity.

They have a 11pm curfew on noise, although one night there was a noisy family in a camper nearby till gone midnight. There was no sign of anyone walking around checking, but they went quiet just before I was going to go and find someone to have a word - so didn't get to see how effective that would have been.

Oh, and as everyone always asks, like a lot of french campsites, Gas BBQs only, or you can use their charcoal ones - although there was only one set near reception.

We had two very pleasant weeks staying on this site and would certainly consider returning at some point in the future.

This site is just down the road from its sister site, Camping de la Plage, and while that's got plenty of reviews we've no idea why this has had so few to date.

Our pitch was large enough for our needs (a variety of sizes are available), level and with the usual French hedges between the other pitches.

The toilet/facilities block at the front of the site was good and coped well even though the site was full throughout our stay. The one at the back of the site did look a bit tired.

The on-site swimming pool was on the small side and could get very busy, although with two beaches within walking distance this isn't such an issue.

The only other slight grumble is that you can't use charcoal barbecues on your pitches, gas ones are fine, instead they've got a selection of communal ones dotted round the site.

Just across from the site there's a reasonably stocked shop/morning bakery, bar/restaurant and take-away. Pizzas were good from the take-away, restaurant was okay but a touch expensive.

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.
