BRITTANY comes naturally with wild coastlines of beauty. Its coastline offers a rare variety of landscapes where rocky chaos, long sandy beaches, vertiginous cliffs or abers. The Granite Rose coast, the steep rocks that defy the ocean in the Finistère or the peaceful beauty of the Gulf of Morbihan leave no one unmoved. You can go back a hundred times, it’s always a new delight. As for the city, Brittany is a visit in the Middle Ages with cities whose stone tells us the history of this territory that has preserved its authentic character. SAINT-MALO, QUIMPER, RENNES or VANNES are all invitations for a trip through time during your camping holiday in Brittany.
Campsites in Brittany between Rennes and Saint-Malo
Like the rest of Brittany, Ille-et-Vilaine has a sumptuous coastline consisting of the Emerald Coast which stretches from Cancale to Cap Fréhel. It owes its nickname to the colour of its waters with their emerald reflections. However, as beautiful as this coastline is, Ille-et-Vilaine is also distinguished by an incredible heritage, of which Saint-Malo is the jewel. This fortified city is a tightrope walker between land and sea. From the Grand Bé, the island opposite Saint-Malo, which is accessible on foot at low tide, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the city. In addition to Saint-Malo, Ille-et-Vilaine is full of sites rich in history, such as the beautiful city of Rennes, the capital of Brittany, Fougère, a fortified town that houses nothing less than the largest medieval fortress in Europe, and the elegant seaside resort of Dinard with its Belle Epoque style. So many places to visit during your camping holiday in Brittany in Ille-et-Vilaine.
Camping in the Côtes d’Armor
The Côtes d’Armor is distinguished by some beautiful natural sites such as the Cap d’Erquy – Cap Fréhel. The latter is one of the most beautiful places in Brittany. At Cap Fréhel, the pink sandstone cliffs are 70 metres high. The GR34 links the Cap d’Erquy and the Cap Fréhel. A superb walk not to be missed during your camping holiday in Brittany in the Côtes d’Armor. Off the coast of the Côtes d’Armor, the island of Bréhat awaits you for a walk or bike ride. This island, which was the first natural site classified in France in 1907, is a small natural paradise where the agapanthus blooms. It can be reached by boat from Ploubazlanec. In the east of the Côtes d’Armor, the Pink Granite Coast offers the visitor rocks with pink hues and surprising shapes. A real open-air museum which can be discovered by walking along the customs path.
Campsites in Finistère, facing the ocean
At the tip of Brittany, Finistère faces the ocean. If one discovers cities with a Breton character such as Concarneau, Douarnenez or Quimper, the main asset of Finistère remains without any doubt its rocky and steep coasts which defy the waves of the Atlantic. The Pointe du Raz is without doubt the most emblematic site. More than anywhere else, Finistère deserves its name: the end of the land. Sculpted by the winds and the ocean, this gigantic 70-metre high rock juts out into the water like a gigantic stone ship. It is without doubt one of the most spectacular sites in Brittany. It alone justifies choosing Brittany and Finistère for your next camping holiday. But don’t forget the Crozon peninsula with its vast expanses of heathland or the bay of Morlaix with its many islands and islets.
Campsites in the Gulf of Morbihan
With Carnac and its alignments of menhirs, the charming port of Saint Goustan in Auray or the peninsula of Quiberon where the magnificent landscapes of the Côte Sauvage stretch out, the Morbihan is not lacking in interest, like the other departments of Brittany. However, it is the gulf that gives it its name that justifies a camping holiday in Morbihan. This inland sea of changing colours offers new landscapes at every moment of the day. A string of 42 islands has been scattered around. Some of them, such as Ile aux Moines and the wildest, Ile d’Arz, offer beautiful walks to holidaymakers.
