Reviewer: Mrs M 282 1 review from this member

We went on a family holiday here back in 2005, this was before they introduced the indoor swimming pool. We absolutely loved the site and found that it had plenty to keep everyone entertained. The staff were all friendly and the community facilities were of a good standard. We bought fresh croissants and pain au chocolates from the shop each morning and these were reasonably priced. The outdoor swimming pool is a nice area however only has one slide that you have to get out of the pool area and walk over to use. However, we went in July and always had plenty of space and in fact found the pool area to ourselves at times. We are planning another visit in August 2012 and looking forward to seeing the indoor swimming pool.

Parc d' Inly has recently joined the Yelloh Villages group so I expected the site to have very high standards.

Yet another site that is gradually replacing touring pitches with statics. Not that it bothered us as we stay in a static for our annual pilgrimage to the land of wine and cheese. There are 500 pitches, 120 remain touring. The majority of the statics are arranged in corrals around a central grassy bit and are quite pleasant. Our static was on a former touring pitch and was surrounded by mature pine trees and so was shaded most of the day. Not that shade mattered since it rained or was simply overcast for most of the time. The trees were home to red squirrels, which I had never seen before, and monster pine cones that make a huge din when they land on the roof. I imagine they would easily break a sunroof so beware.

Facilities:

There are two toilet / shower / wash up blocks, both much handier for the statics! Both were merely adequate, not great, in contrast to other sites we have visited in France.

Shop:

Covered all the essentials but was particularly lacking for fresh produce. The Champion in Pénestin is within walking distance which perhaps explained that. The staff were friendly enough.

Pools:

Outdoor pools were freezing! Reasonable water slide. Small indoor pool (new for 2008) was nicely done but got extremely busy. Pool area clean and in good repair.

Children's Play Area:

A bouncy castle and a pair of swings - poor really.

Restaurant / Bar / Takeaway:

All present but unappetising. Again, if you want to eat out, Pénestin is only a walk away.

Other facilities:

Tennis, table tennis, pétanque, a full size football pitch and a boating / fishing lake, pony riding.

Entertainment:

The usual evening bingo, boozing, karaoke, visiting circus sorts of things. Not loud enough to bother us, though in a tent it may have been. Stops at midnight.

Annoyances:

The main niggle was that the access barrier control was for LHD vehicles only. Other sites visited have had dual controls for RHD as well. This was a major pain in the bum. However, it is in France. Ahem.

This is a dog friendly site. Nothing wrong with that except that being mostly French dogs, the practice of pooper scooping appears to be optional, watch your step!

There was something about the ambience of this site, a certain je ne sais quoi that made it feel unwelcoming. Perhaps it was the poor weather or the gloomy pitch, it just didn't feel quite right. Not very objective I know, but there was something I can't quite put my finger on.

The Area:

This South Eastern corner of Brittany is not the prettiest part of Brittany, or even Morbihan. The beaches are generally not as nice or accessible as they are further West. The best beaches we found were at Carnac Plage - a bit busy - and at La Baule-Escoublac which was horrendously busy. If you want to visit La Baule, get there early or you will not find anywhere to park. Yes it is a very nice beach, but the hustle of this resort was not for us. In desperation we actually drove to Bénodet.

In this area I also encountered the worst standard of driving I have seen outside of Paris. Oh, and don't bother to drive anywhere in Pénestin on Sunday morning, there is a street market and the whole place comes to a standstill. So everybody tries to drive there.

Things To Do:

There is lots to see and do within an easy drive:

Le Parc de Prehistoire - very good

Branféré Zoo - very good

Le Croisic Aquarium - not bad

The walled city of Guérande - very good

Monkey Forest! a zip line activity park - not bad

The bridge over the Loire at St Nazaire - great view from the top.

The standing stones around Carnac.

2 hours from Le Puy du Fou - near enough :)

Lots of other things of note or interest within reasonable distance.

Conclusion:

I would not go back to this site - never said that about anywhere before. The area has some redeeming features, but Finistere is better all round.
