My husband and I visited here for 1 week of our holiday in France. Choose it from looking at previous reviews and well, we were not disappointed. It is fab. Everything from online correspondence to departure was lovely. The site is situated in a small village, 250 metres from lots of rocky, sandy, beaches. Les Embruns prides itself in its floral displays, planting and conservation of the environment. It is beautiful. There are a mixture of grassy pitches, with or without electric or water, all surrounded by high hedging, trees and colourful flowers. There are 2 very modern shower blocks with the largest shower cubicles I have ever seen. They are unisex and positively encourage families to shower together. Each unit having a sink, mirror, shaving socket and 1 or 2 showers. There was plenty of hot water, soap, hand driers and hair driers. On site here are swimming pools, a small family farm, large play areas, tennis courts, a quiet orchard, a spa or therapy building with gym, a games room and Wi-Fi. All staff are friendly and at reception speak English. We did not want too leave and will be back.
Me and my husband stayed here for a week end of June beginning of July. Reception was closed when we got there but on ringing the bell and announcing ourselves Gwenaelle opened the gate and told us to find a pitch and tell her later which pitch we had chosen. Although it states you pay the balance on arrival she said to pay as we left, we asked for a weeks wifi (22euro) again she said to pay as we left. The facilities are spotlessly clean, the showers are very spacious and are push button and unisex. There are flowers everywhere and little fountains here and there, it is a beautifully laid out site. There is a bar/restaurant attached to the site which we didn't use and a shop across the road which sells fresh bread and you don't have to order it, the prices were reasonable only fractionally dearer than supermarkets. There is a small Carrefour a 5 minute drive away and a large Intermarche in Moelan Sur Mer a bit further on. There are several beaches within a short walk they all looked good. The pool is covered and heated but it has 2 water slides outside which are great fun. We used the week to travel around the area and would recommend visiting Concarneau, go to the walled old town, it's beautiful. Pont Aven is very pretty and Benodet has a fantastic beach. Highly recommended site with excellent facilities.
This site is beautiful! Wonderful friendly staff. Abundant in flowers. Beautiful nature section:- pond, ducks, waterfall, goats, ponies.
Once set up on our pitch we enjoyed a week of sun, relaxation, peace and quiet. The swimming pool never appeared to have more than 4 people in it.
The shower block, toilets and wash area are beautiful and clean. They appear to be fairly new. Jet washed and disinfected daily.
There are washing machines - I did not use these though.
There are beautiful features around the site:- boats filled with flowers. A feature horse and cart. An old painted up olive-fruit press. Flowers baskets hanging from all the on site lamp posts.
Les Embruns has a little cafe - restaurant outside, that was wonderful. We had a pizza each, chips and a bottle of wine for 30euro. There is also a little store that sells fresh baked bread daily, opposite the entrance to the site.
The resort if so pretty with a 5 minute walk to the beach. There is a coastal path with beautiful scenery.
It is a 20 minute walk to the harbour with a 1Euro fee you can cross the inlet on a small boat and walk around the inlet. Please note this took us 5 hours (Les Embruns lady told us it was a lovely 2 hours walk). We so glad we did it though - stunning! Take water, lots of water and a hat!
We had no children but the facilities for children are first class!
We spent 4 nights at this very well looked after site at the end of August when many of the pitches were empty, so it was pretty quiet. I think kids would love it, with its swimming pool and play equipment. The local area is lovely, although you may want to go a little further than the nearest beach. The loo and shower blocks are excellent, with nice big shower cubicles (good for parents with toddlers). The nearby grocery store is the only one in the town and and it is pretty limited, so if you have a motor home you will have to drive to get to somewhere with a bit more choice.
We visited six sites whilst touring France in the low season and this site was one of the best two. We would revisit.
It is a medium sized, well run, family site. Approximately half of the pitches are occupied by permanent holiday mobile homes. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The site was quiet, but we were visiting in the low season. Nevertheless, I guess that even in the high season, it would be less noisy than some of the larger sites.
There are modern and clean sanitation facilities, with British-style toilets with seats. A sink with soap dispenser and hand dryer is available in the toilet area. The showers are reasonably spacious and sufficiently hot.
Le Pouldu is a relatively small and quiet village – no raving night clubs here! Nevertheless, there is ample to keep kids occupied with the play area, mini golf, open spaces, and good sized indoor and outdoor pools. There is a typical Brittany beach about 400 metres away. There are several walks and cycle routes in the area.
There is a small café/restaurant at the entrance to the site and a creperie just a few yards down the road. Both were still open in the low season when we visited and both were pleasant to visit. There is a small grocery store selling bread and other basic essentials, just across the road, and this too was still open at the end of the season.
Wifi is available across the site although it was rather expensive, ranging from five euros for one hour to thirty-something euros for a week. The connection speed was good.
The pitches are of average size, nicely separated by small hedges and trees and with varying degrees of shade. We had a choice of several that were suitable for our 2 berth caravan plus awning. However, if you have a large 6 berth plus awning I would check with the helpful staff in advance to secure an appropriate pitch.
