Owners are very kind and helpful. When a previous site retained my wife's passport in error, they telephoned the site on our behalf and made sure it was there.

Site is impeccably clean and all of the pitches are spacious with good access. The shop is well stocked and the bread ordering system is brilliant.

We could not have chosen a better site for our first trip to France with the caravan

We visited during the last two weeks of August. We had travelled from Calais and stayed overnight in Normandy in order to break the journey up. This was necessary as the trip was about 700 miles from our home in Suffolk. We would have considered arriving at one of the closer ports but we travelled with our two dogs so wanted a short crossing. It was our first time abroad with the dogs and found the experience fine, they stayed in our caravan during the crossing and were perfectly content and the visit to the vets in Pont Croix before we returned was no trouble at all, the owners of the site were kind enough to book this for us when we arrived.

The site itself is lovely, the aspect is very pretty being situated about 300 metres from the local beach at Pors Peron. The site is on a slope but all the pitches are relatively level, at least with standard equipment you will be able to level the van. Pitches are segregated nicely with well kept hedging, either in single pitches or in pairs. The modern facilities are excellent, when we arrived the site was pretty full, although this tailed off drastically during our first week and by the time we left it really did have that end of season feel. Anyway the facilities always coped fine. They were very clean, nice hot water and we never had to queue. The owners were very pleasant and helpful, we unfortunately had some car trouble when we were there and we received plenty of helpful advice and some kind offers of assistance which fortunately we didn't need to take up as our insurers came to the rescue.

We very much enjoyed the local area and whilst we would have probably explored more had we not experienced the problems with the car we still enjoyed visiting Douarenez (good seafood at the harbour), Audierne (good Saturday morning market), Concarneau and Benodet. We also would recommend walking (or cycling) from the local Pont Croix to Audierne along the river and visiting Pointe du Raz, the French equivalent of Lands End. If you fancy a take away Pizza we would recommend the friendly guys at the Pont Croix Super you and there are regular visits to the site by a Creperie van.

The coastline is rocky headlands and cliffs with bays of lovely sand. It is very pretty and when the sun is shining the sea is an azure blue and very clear. The main beach at Pors Peron is very nice although with our dogs we used the adjacent beach just to the West. In our view this was the nicer beach as it was quieter and more sheltered if the wind was blowing a bit. A word of caution however, as others have noted, it is a scramble down to this beach and is certainly not for all. I would also make a more general note the sea is 'fresh' bordering on cold. We are no wimps having been raised swimming in the North Sea but I regretted not packing the kids wetsuits, plenty of the locals wore them, particularly as snorkelling was very popular.

Finally I mentioned the car problems, I would absolutely recommend Caravan Club Red Pennant who came to our rescue when the gearbox on my tow car decided to collapse suddenly late during our first week. Whilst we didn't grind to a halt and have to be recovered there was no way we were going to be able to get back to the UK and the local Kia garage was quoting 3 weeks wait to repair! I rang Red Pennant at lunchtime on the Monday and 48 hrs later they had delivered a nearly new Seat Alhambra hire tow car on a truck from the UK, which in turned collected our car and returned it to the UK. When we arrived home they swapped the cars again. We were able to continue our holiday exactly as planned and they didn't just rescue our car they rescued our holiday. Thank goodness I bought the insurance a couple of days before leaving for France - lesson for us all!

Site was lovely and we would return.

Dear fellow campers.

Our family have just returned to the UK after spending 5 nights in Pors peron which was a birthday treat from my partner to myself. We went with our 5 year old son.

Well 10 out of 10 for this site.

Graham & Nikky have created a fantastic camping site. Read on to see why.

There are separate male/female showers with the addition of an unisex block. All kept spotless through the day.

The washing facilities for dishes is well placed so you can wash your dishes whilst your little ones play in the play area.

Tent pitches are fairly level and screened with hedging.

The beach pors peron is 300 mtrs away! There is a walk along the cliff face too, for stunning views.

Eating out& shopping;

Pont croix 10 min by car for the local store all that you're need and fuel too, carry on to Audierne for stunning views and fantastic sea food.

So all in all. Top site, clean, friendly hosts, lots to do, lots to see.

Please don't make our mistake. Please take advantage of the ferry offer pors peron gives, We drove from calais to pors peron taking this route is very long. You're be on the road for 10 hours or more with apx €30 in tolls. St Malo the best bet.

Hope this is of help. Enjoy this great place.

DGS The Family.

This is an excellent campsite.

Pitches are genorous enough for your van, awning and car with room to spare. Shower and WC facilities are really well maintained and never crowded. There is also a very good wash up area, children's playground and a shop for essentials.

We visited local towns of Pont Croix, Audierne and Douarnenez which all have their own charms.

The beach which is close by is fantastic for bodyboarding, swimming and kayaking!

We will definitely be back next year.

If I had to pick one bad point it is the fact that although advertised, the free WIFI is not great at all and of negligible benefit but it wasn't really an issue.

Well what can I say that has not already been said, I know fantastic, outstanding this site is a little gem and run by people who care about your stay being as good as possible.

The site has pitches to suit all your needs large/small sun/shade open/private, the toilet block is new and kept very clean by hard working staff. When we stayed it was still low season, so very quiet, but that's how we like it. The surrounding area is full of sandy beaches and ports that take some beating for scenic views, a short walk out of the site and you are on the coastal path with great views across to the Crozon peninsula which is worth a visit for a day out.

Thanks to all involved for making our stay so memorable we will return P&C.

It is July 2nd, I am sat in glorious sunshine, all I can hear is birds and the distant sound of waves on the shore, bliss. Wow what a fantastic site this is. So well cared for, facilities new last year and kept so clean and tidy, pitches big and well manicured (but still natural looking), small shop for bits and bobs at reception together with daily bread/croissant ordering service and children's play area includes an enclosed trampoline, a great success with all. Free Wifi is available on all pitches throughout the site. The owners Graham and Nikki are a delight and go the extra mile to help those in need.

Unbelievably if you are Acsi card users all this is available to you for 12 euros a night including electricity.

The surrounding area is naturally beautiful with a small idyllic cove 250 mts walk away with a small cafe in the summer and loos available too. Great for swimming. Lots of pretty villages and harbours to visit and a fab cliff walk too.

Big supermarket shopping and fuel is about 15 min drive away.

Will I be back. Oh yes. If I was able to score it at 11 out of 10 I would.
