 We had researched a number of sites in northern Brittany as we were keen to find somewhere where we could both have a sea view and access to the sea for our Zodiac inflatable boat. After we had chosen a few possible sites we had email conversations with a number of sites to find suitable ones. Port La C was very helpful, emailing a map of the campsite showing suitable pitches. We booked the site on the internet and paid a deposit of 100 by credit card.

We arrived late in the afternoon of 27 July. The male owner, who spoke a little English, seemed a little concerned as to whether our 'van would fit on the agreed pitch and suggested we took a look first, providing us with a map of the site showing available pitches. When we went to our booked pitch we were annoyed to find it would not have accommodated a 'van half the size of ours. This was despite us having clearly stated the 'van size in our emails. After a lot of searching we found a suitable pitch with a sea view but quite a long way back from the sea although the one booked originally had been near the sea.

This sloping site of 200 pitches is set in open coastal countryside at the end of the 'Unspoilt Peninsula' north of the village of Pleubian. The higher pitches are laid in a series of terraces which give single width rows of large-sized pitches. Many of the higher pitches have lovely views out over the adjacent sea and small islands. The lower pitches are set in double rows screened from the sea by a bed of 2 metre high sea 'grass'. There are lots of attractive mature trees and flowering plants which beautify the site and give shade and the site is very quiet and peaceful.

A top end of the pitch near the entrance there is a small complex of buildings. The reception office has a range of brochures and information about local sights. There is, also, a small bar with a pleasant outdoor terrace. Bread can be ordered from the bar. Nearby there is a medium-sized outdoor pool but this was rather cold. There is, also, a games room with table tennis table and arcade machines. There is a playground near this area. Free wi-fi is available in this area.

The rest of the site is accessed by a steeply sloping tarmac road with the camping pitches on the left and mobile homes on the right. There are 2 large toilet blocks set on this main roadway with an adequate number of toilets and showers, including some child sized WCs, and a CDP point. These blocks, also, house the washing-up and launderettes with sinks, washing machines and tumble dryers.

At the end of the main campsite road there is a large playing field with a volley ball net and from there 2 paths lead through the bank of sea grass to the coast. Near to the playing field there is a selection of outdoor exercise equipment. The adjacent small bay is bounded by a long distance coastal pathway. There is a small lighthouse further along the coast. The beach is covered with large pebbles and slopes steeply down to what becomes a huge expanse of wet sand at low tide. In the bay there are mooring buoys for small boats but because of the slope of the beach these are only accessible at low tide when there is no water for the boats! We hired one of these buoys but made little use of it because of the above reasons. It was expensive at 24. 00 for a week.

There are no good sandy beaches adjacent to the site so the site is NOT really suitable for beach holidays. I understand that there are sandy beaches nearby, driving, but we did not visit them. There are a number of pretty coastal resorts in driving distance including those on the 'Pink Granite Coast' where the beaches are backed by huge pink boulders sculpted into elaborate shapes.

The small town of Pleubian is about 2 miles from the campsite. It has several bars, a baker's, tourist information office and a small 'Super you Express' supermarket. The nearby river port of Treguier made an interesting day out. It has a number of historical buildings and Central Square with a beautiful cathedral. It, also, has a number of interesting second hand shops. There are several supermarkets including a Lidl on the outskirts.

We, also, took a day trip to the Ile de Brehat. This beautiful archipelago of islands is only 10 minutes by boat from the Pointe de l'Arcouest which is under an hour's drive from the campsite. The islands are car-free and we spent the day walking the lovely flower-decked pathways and taking in the lovely coastal views.

Paimpol, also, is an interesting working port for a day's visit and with a good range of shops. A vintage steam railway runs from Paimpol but it was expensive and we did not take the trip.

The cost of our pitch with EHU for the 2 of us and Max the collie was c26 per night which I thought was quite expensive for the facilities offered. The owners were quite friendly and helpful and the wife speaks English fluently. We would recommend this site to those who like peaceful rural sites. The lack of a sandy beach makes it unsuitable for a beach-type holiday. It is more suitable for short stays as there was not a lot to do either at the site or in the vicinity. The location was, also, rather remote for travelling to other places. In our opinion it would be more suitable for couples than families for similar reasons.
