Reviewer: JCamping 7 reviews from this member

 Nice site and within walking (or cycling) distance of the village. Very nice creperie (it gets busy so go early). Toilet facilities were fine but the taps only gave a short burst of water and would do with upgrading. Also paid for wifi but very difficult to get it going. Staff very friendly. Good quiet location but within easy distance of the coast and local towns/attractions.

 Quite a quiet site. Really nice pitches, and you can roam around and choose your own. A decent amount of shade from trees and hedges. English hosts who are very friendly but not too 'in your face'. They have lots of regular visitors and several mobile homes on site, but they treat first-time visitors with just the same warmth as those they have known for years.

The facilities are all clean and tidy.

The site is quite a good centre for visiting Pont Aven, Fouesnant, La Forêt Fouesnant, Quimper, Concarneau and Locronan, which are all well worth a visit. The actual town of Bannalec is not a great tourist attraction, but you can get a decent meal there and the church is worth looking at. There is a supermarket about 1km from the site, which makes up for the lack of a shop on-site.

All in all a very relaxing place to be.

 Les Genets d'Or is an easy 80 mile drive from Roscoff. The site itself has an abundance of trees and hedges, and very large pitches. We had a very warm and helpful welcome from Alan and Judy, even though we were early arriving, and this continued throughout our stay. The sanitary block is clean and well kept, and there is a thoughtfully organised guest facility next to reception which adds to the character of the place. Les Genets d'Or is in a quiet location, but close to some very pleasant towns and villages close by - notably Pont Aven which has lots of attractively preserved old stone buildings and a nice harbour. The wonderfully peaceful and natural headland, beach and coastal path at Raguenez are also near. In summary, a well organised and very friendly site in a tranquil area.

 Immaculately maintained site with spacious pitches, some separated by mature hedges, most slightly sloping. Friendly, helpful English owners. Toilets always clean with handwash provided. Free showers always hot. Rotary driers available. 15 minute walk to pleasant town of Bannalec. Excellent coffee in Café de la Mairie! Very good patisserie, creperie and pizzeria all in main town square. Visits to Pont Aven, Concarneau, Quimper, Benodet, Quimperle all recommended and several small fishing ports also worth the effort.

 Camping Les Genets d’Or is conveniently close to the N165/E60 expressway, and only a couple of hours from the Roscoff ferry. When following directions to the site, be careful not to take the very first turn after the level crossing in Bannalec - this leads into the supermaket! Take the turn to the site down the lane immediately after the large fire station just outside the town. The site itself is very neatly laid out in well demarcated and neatly hedged good-sized pitches. The toilet block is excellent, with separate washing-up room, plus washing machine/drier. Everything is immaculately maintained by the English owners. Electricity supply is 6-amp, in common with most continental sites, but we had problems tripping the fuse even using one item at a time. We think our microwave must have a high initial loading, so we avoiding using it. Around the area we visited Pont Aven - pretty but a bit touristy, and did an excellent circular walk along the GR34 starting from a beach car park near Tregunc using a local walks book from the tourist office in Pont Aven. This walk included visiting a couple of extremely pretty villages of thatched cottages. (Villages chaurmiere). We also visited Concarneau during our very short stay in the area - it is a big town with a large fishing port, not entirely to our taste, but the old fortress (Ville Close) is pleasant, if very touristy.

 My husband and I stayed in the campsite's own accommodation. A converted cottage for 2. The cottage was amply large enough for 2. Bedroom, kitchen/living area, bathroom with shower and private patio area. Excellently equipped with patio furniture and barbeque. Every item of kitchen equipment was available from tin foil to matches!

The site itself is small and set in a quiet rural area with large trees and hedges surrounding all pitches. The location of the site was excellent for touring around and visiting all the nearby villages and towns.

The toilets and washing facilities are very adequate and very clean.

The owners of the site make a great effort in being welcoming and were very helpful in terms of informing us of local spots of interest and beaches worth visiting.

I would certainly recommend this site to other couples wanting a quiet relaxing break in Brittany.

 As previous reviewers have found this is a quiet and relaxing site with most friendly owners.

Peace and quiet are the great beauty along with a wonderful bird life amongst the trees. The facilities are very clean if on the modest size. The pitches are arranged in pairs and of a generous area.

A site I shall use again. The area is full of interest and the beaches not that too far away.

 This is a lovely quiet small country site with large pitches surrounded by hedges.

There are some static vans but most of these are privately owned and most were empty when we were there.

The owners are English and very friendly and helpful. There is a small games room but alas no swimming pool.

The facilities are not large but are clean and adequate.

If you want a quiet holiday away from it all then this is an excellent site. They also store vans for people who do not want to tow them back home. The rates for both storage and pitches are very reasonable.

There is asmall playground for children but I would not suggest that is is a children's site as it does not provide extra facilities for them. Having said that there were some children there at the time we went.

If your French is poor then this is the site for you. It is near to the coast but not so close that you can just go for a quick swim.

We will go again.
